Welcome to CALA: The Center for Accelerated Language Acquisition! We are the official language training center of the University Honors College at Middle Tennessee State University.

Our classes are based on brain research. So, if you want to learn Spanish fast and easy, this is the way! Don’t worry. We also offer French language classes, as well as Chinese, German, and more.

At CALA, we use methods like TPR (Total Physical Response) and TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling). What does that mean? It means our accelerated classes are engaging, natural, and a fun language-learning experience!

Believe it or not, CALA also offers unique yoga classes for stress management. Because you learn so much better when you’re happy! While we do offer classes throughout the year, most of them are during the summer. So, if you’re looking for some summer fun in Tennessee, CALA is the place to be!

And if you’re a teacher who wants to learn these advanced techniques to use in the classroom (for all ages!), we also offer a methodology course.
