      We do not offer private Spanish classes- however I can put up a poster in our office with your contact information for anyone that may be interested in providing that for you.

    I would like to know when you start a beginner Spanish class.

      Hi There, we have just started our last session for the winter. We will have more scheduled during May and June however I am not sure of the dates yet. They are usually on Tuesday nights and I would think that the Spring session would start in the first week of May. We are currently putting our Spring programming together, would you like me to put you on the list for the next class and I will call you when the dates are finalized? If you do I will need your phone number.
      Thanks Michelle

    Are there any courses available for breathing meditation?

      Lacombe Lifelong Learning responded:
      December 9, 2015 at 5:03 pm

      Hi there
      Sorry I haven’t replied sooner, I was looking into some options for you but unfortunately I couldn’t find any classes on this. We do not currently offer a class on any kind of meditation, but I am trying to arrange for one for the Spring- it is a great course idea.
      Thank you
