Application: The Language Lyceum
In this age of increasing international travel and global concerns, mastering a foreign language is essential to professional career growth as well as satisfying on a personal level. The Language Lyceum is an important next step in Richmond’s progression toward becoming an international business community. It is being designed as a stand-alone school, with classes for students of all ages from pre-school to adult. Native and local teachers will be trained in a new, European method which is fun, interactive, and effective, and complements in-school and corporate training programs. The Language Lyceum’s co-founders are already planning a Summer International Institute in 2013 to be hosted at a Richmond school. By Fall 2013, The Language Lyceum will have expanded to weekend and evening workshops and, eventually, to year-round classes at its own location. A brochure is in the works and will be marketed this fall to schools and corporations via the press, advertising, social media, and speaking engagements.
