There is a limit of 12 people for each class. We are keeping the classes small so each student can receive individual attention from the instructor. If there is an insufficient number of students, the class will be postponed to another time.

The instructor for both classes will be Prof Jonathan Shea, co- author of several textbooks on translating a wide array of records from Polish and Russian to English.

We wish to thank Richard and Victoria Lamore of New Britain for providing the venue for these classes.
