We're so glad you're interested in learning the Macedonian language and about Macedonian culture! The Macedonian Language E-Learning Center provides 12-week courses (one class a week) for children and teens. At the beginning, instruction is both in English and Macedonian, gradually decreasing English and increasing Macedonian as the students' knowledge increases. We practice reading, writing, listening and speaking as well as learn about Macedonian culture through artifacts such as songs, videos, and stories. We use a variety of print and online materials, which are shared with students so they can also use them at home to review the material covered in class.

All classes will take place via Google Meet (link will be provided after payment).

See details for each age group below.

For preschoolers

In this weekly 30-minute class, we'll sing songs in Macedonian, move our bodies and dance, as well as listen to stories in Macedonian. Through the unstructured learning in this class, children ages 2-5 can be exposed to Macedonian language and culture. We have a maximum of 5 children per class so they can get individualized attention. One parent or grandparent must attend with their child(ren).
