Lifelong Learning

  • German made easy

Charleston Area Lifelong Learning (CALL) provides an opportunity to go back into a classroom with your peers, to facilitate a class or just to learn. It’s a great way to make new friends. You can choose to be on either side of the desk as experts share a lifetime of knowledge and experience with their peers. See the “Who We Are” section below to learn more about us.

The CALL FALL 2022 SCHEDULE is now available. Come to CCR’s October 3 presentation to learn more from the facilitators.

You can register for C.A.L.L.’s Fall Term at https://secure.touchnet.com/C20590_ustores/web/store_main.jsp?STOREID=80 

ONCE YOU REGISTER, WE WILL EMAIL YOU A LINK THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO BE ADDED TO AS MANY OF OUR FALL TERM OFFERINGS AS YOU PLEASE.
