The Alexander Arguelles Academy of Languages & Literatures
Thank you for your interest in participating in our discussion circles and seminars.  

We have chosen texts for July through September, as per the schedule in this application. Classes are designed in three-month blocks, but you may still join after they have begun.

For most offerings, this application form asks you to do some reading of the kind of text we will read together and then to answer a few questions about your experience doing so.  Pending sufficient enrollment, these answers will help me try to place people in groups according to level.
