Please note courses are displayed in date and time order not in level order. Classes are offered once per week for ten weeks. The cost of the 10-week session is $295 with a required 1 year membership of $40 for an individual. Membership allows us to offer you a discount on classes as well as various events held throughout the year.

In addition, take note of grammar workshops, and other special courses that may be offered to intermediate level students.

ONLINE ZOOM Classes are limited to 8 students, however, the ICC reserves the right to adjust this number as is necessary. 

From our students:

The instructor is excellent; the best that I have had. She is prepared & very patient. Although we use the textbook, she comes up with creative ways to cover the material.  Also, she doesn’t waste class time having us do things that we can do on our own, but instead encourages conversation, while still covering the material.
