NEW Program - Discover Deutschland: Learn German in Germany
Discover the wonders of Germany this summer in Munich, a historic, charming, and culturally rich city in Bavaria. The region is the home of Oktoberfest, BMW, fairy-tale castles, and world class museums. Learn the most widely-spoken language in the EU while immersing yourself in Bavarian culture. Students will have a choice of day and weekend excursions to places like Neuschwanstein Castle, museums, historic Augsburg, and Salzburg, Austria. No prior German language experience required. The cost for 2 CE German classes will be $754.00 in addition to the travel expenses.
This course will take place in Munich, Germany from June 3-July 1. There will be 2 pre- and post-travel meetings on Harper’s campus in May and July. Click below to fill out an interest form and get detailed information about the program. Applications for courses in Munich are due by March 15.

I started a new job as a graphic and web designer and the digital badge I got was part of the reason they chose to hire me. I couldn't have done it without you!
David is a truly amazing teacher who makes learning the harmonica lots of fun. His enthusiasm is contagious and he has a heart of gold.
The Writing Salon was so much more than a writing class. The experience was energetic, enthusiastic and supportive. I highly recommend this class for anyone who wants to develop their skills as a writer!
As always, your Spanish classes are packed with new information about the language. You make it easy to learn Spanish and keep it very interesting. Thank you!
I have participated in many LLI classes over the past two years. Gary is a terrific discussion facilitator and brings excellent background knowledge to our classes. I'm learning so much about Foreign Policy.
Just want to let you know how much I enjoyed your class. Hope you will have more classes since I am a novice in the wine area and am anxious to learn.
