Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center is for language learners who seek an alternative to the larger and often overwhelming classes offered at most educational institutions. For more than twenty-five years Maria Oliveira has provided adult study programs with proven success rates. Designed for effective language learning, classes at Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center are for small groups of ten, or fewer, which allows for individual attention and encourages individual growth. 

Languages offered at the Language Center are Spanish, French, Portuguese (including both Brazilian and European accents), Italian, Mandarin, and English for nonnative speakers. 

Our experienced instructors are highly accomplished and are native speakers of the language they offer. Teachers are bilingual with excellent communication skills for our English speaking students, and they support Maria’s belief that becoming bilingual is a vital and worthy goal for all individuals. 

Classes are offered in six week sessions, except those that are “ongoing,” in which case the group meets weekly throughout the entire year. Private instruction is also available. 

The Language Learning Center is located in Richmond, CA, on the east side of the San Francisco Bay. Easily accessed from all Bay Area communities it is a quarter mile east of I-80. The school has ample parking. For driving instructions and map of our location, click here:
