Quick Quality Introduction to Foreign Languages:
I have seen the flyers for BHLI all over LA for the last couple of years--mostly by car washes and places where you see headshots--so I decided to give them a chance when I had to learn Italian in a hurry before a trip to Sicily, where nobody outside of tourist jobs speaks English. I was happily surprised by how fast BHLI was able to teach me basic intro Italian. After two months I was able to order food, go shopping, look for tourist attractions and historic sites as well as exchange a car rental. The weekly classes are designed for working people so are not overwhelming, but they get the job done. Generally, they want you to go from basic to intermediate to advanced classes in the same time slot with the same people (but if you have scheduling conflict, you can change classes or have homework forwarded to you.) I was impressed and will continue using BHLI, especially if I am going on vacation and have to learn another language quickly.
