Capital Region Language Center is celebrating its second decade of teaching languages to adults and children in and around Albany, New York.  WE LOVE TEACHING LANGUAGES!  We take pride in bringing different generations of students interested in learning different languages to our schools to study.  Our talented instructors are also able to come to your place of business, health care facility, school or university. As of Spring 2020, we are also offering all of our courses online.

At our locations we offer a range of classes from one on one to small group for adults and children.  Our class levels range from absolute beginning through advanced and conversational.  We also offer remedial tutoring and enrichment classes for teens.  Our children’s program can serve as an introduction to a second language or your child can master that language with us and take a different language in middle school.

We start new classes all of the time.  While we typically teach courses that are 20 hours in length and establish schedules that will help you stay disciplined with language learning, we will spend a lot of time learning about your needs up front and doing our best to accommodate those needs.
