I need to learn Vietnamese for retirement and have been disappointed several times elsewhere. but at Seattle Languages I've been taking classes on weekends and now I am approaching fluency. Last time I went to Việt Nam I was able to talk to people and read everything. It's really great. They're located in University Village and parking is easy, there are classes in European and Asian languages and it's very convenient for someone with a job. I recommend them.

I really enjoyed taking the intro to German conversation at Seattle Languages. I did not have any experience at all with the German langage, but I was not made to feel intimidated in my first class. We had a class size start at 6 people. This is a great size for partner work and to feel comfortable speaking in a foreign language. The work load was not too extensive and our teacher was understanding of family or work commitments. Ingrid made sure you were caught up on class by giving you your early homework assignments or catching up with vocabulary and grammer via email. I really want to sign up for the next class and continue with my studies. I enjoyed the dynamic of the class as there was not pressure except from yourself to do well. This is well worth the 4 hours a week and the classmates were great too! Tschuss!

I started Japanese in March 2009, and continued to take it for 8 levels (each level is a 20-hr. course) until April. The teacher was great, the other students were interesting, and there was a real camaraderie in the class. Class size ranged from 3-7, so there was plenty of time for individual practice and interaction. In April I started taking German and got up to Level 3. The German teacher was very energetic and kept the class moving at a good pace. Both the Japanese and German teachers are native speakers. I've really enjoyed all the classes I've taken here and will continue to take more. The location near University Village is near where I live and the classes are offered at convenient times.

Love the view from the Swedish Cultural Center. It is absolutely amazing!!! Whether it's day or night, they have one of the best views of the city, Space Needle and Lake Union. I'd say the only view that can compare to this is the Columbia Tower Club. Although I am not a member, nor Swedish, I have attended as a guest of various members. Some of the members are super friendly and inviting. Others are reserved and keep to their cliques. Pretty normal for any place in Seattle. There are people young and old here, straight or gay. The bar here is pretty much the main place I've hung out when I've been here and they do have a nice bar. Sometimes they give out free samples of pastries and cheese. Not impressed with the pastries but love the Swedish cheese ;)

The last two classes I took were great. I was sitting in a small class with only 5-6 students and had a wonderful instructor. She was amazing! Not only was she a native but she clearly knew how to engage all of us and make us speak a lot. I learned a lot, much more than I expected. I would recommend this school. They are fully accredited and clearly know what they are doing. I will check them out in the summer again as I want to learn Italian. I may take a weekend class as their evening classes end too late for me. Merci!

I have been an AAA member for many years and value their automobile services. Some of their advertisements offering items of questionable relevance leave one cold. Today in the mail there appeared an offer for a FREE! Cellular phone with FREE shipping and on and on. The word FREE (always capitalized in large print) appears six times on the first page, six times on page 2, twice on page 3 and three times on page 4. In a small print footnote, the offer whispers sotto voce that a $35 activation fee is required. Given the probable functionality of the phone in the absence of activation, it is not clear why the activation fee is treated as a separate element. The attempt to hide the real cost of service and the assumption that seventeen occurrences of “FREE�? obfuscate an obligatory cost component are insulting. Why should I respond to to an ad that insults me? No sale, AAA.
