Workshops

Are object pronouns still a mystery to you?
Do you shudder whenever you hear the word “subjunctive”?
Are you getting all your past tenses mixed up?

Our weekly workshops are designed to drill you on those pesky grammar topics that you just can’t wrap your head around. We’ll go over the rules one more time and practice with some exercises, more in depth than we would in your regular group class. Offered in Williamsburg only.

  • $30 drop-in
  • Fridays 5pm, Saturdays and Sundays 4pm
  • Class schedule changes every week.
