Plans are under way for our first ever virtual Open House! Living through a pandemic has taught us that there is no limit to human creativity! We look forward to an incredible Open House, filled with engaging activities and a little something for anyone interested in foreign languages! Keep following our Facebook page for more details!
The CLL partnered with The Embassy of Japan in Trinidad and Tobago to host its Third Annual Japanese Speech Contest! This year's contest was particularly special given its virtual realisation, the choice of themes, the number of participants as well as the number of attendees connected both locally and internationally. Independent learners of Japanese as well as students of the CLL were invited to participate. View the 1st Place Winner's (Aidan Roberts) video here. View the full list of winners here.
The CLL's 20th Anniversary culminated with our triennial Open House, which took place on March 23 & 24, 2018. We would like to thank all our students, staff, sponsors and well-wishers for their support in making our Open House a great success! View our Open House album here.
