Spring Break English Classes Coming!

Spring break is just around the corner.  A time to relax, have fun, and keep studying English!

This year PELA will be offering special classes during Spring Break, March 21-25.  In these classes, students will use English while studying about fun and interesting topics that are not usually covered in an English class.  Tuition is very low for these classes, but we need 5 students to sign up in order to have the class.  Deadline to register and pay tuition is this Monday, March 14.

Please read below for information about the class; topic, days, times, and tuition.

We hope to see you over spring break!
