Registration opens for Penobscot Language School courses
ROCKLAND – Penobscot Bay Language School announces the opening of registration for all online and in-person language courses throughout the six-week Spring 2022 “mini” session (April 18 – May 27). Early bird rates have been extended to accommodate returning students and new language students are also eligible for an equal 10% discount off the standard price.
Penobscot Bay Language School offers the six-week spring mini-session as an opportunity to kick-start summer language studies. New students often take the opportunity to take an introductory course before diving into the full curriculum during the summer. For returning students, this spring mini session is a great opportunity to try new courses or “specials” offered during short sessions – film, literature, performance, music, cooking, etc.
For students starting after the three-week mark, contact PBLS about changing enrollment from spring to summer classes. Email [email protected] or call (207) 594-1084 for details.
