The Central Gulf Coast Lodge is using technology to bring Italian classes right into your own home. That technology is called FreeConferenceCall.
Mildred Cooper, president of the Central Gulf Coast Lodge, has been teaching Italian for years. The classes are being held in Palm Harbor, but you can call from your home or wherever you might be.
Classes begin Wednesday, August 7, from 5:30-7 p.m.
To sign up call, at 727-787-3344 or send her an e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The cost is $40 for the whole year. Mildred donates that fee to charity.
When you enroll, Mildred will give you the telephone number to call and the access code to use to enter the conference.
When you’re in the conference, you will be able to interact with the teacher and other students as if you were all in the classroom together.
The class uses the following text, which is available for $10 at amazon.com
