CSL operates with an emphasis on flexible schedules, trusted and credible instruction, cultural experiences and small classroom settings. Classes are offered as private, semi-private (two students) or group (three-10 students) lessons. Teachers are often referred to as “language coaches” and use a variety of teaching tools, including film, music, art and food to create a holistic and comprehensive approach to language learning.

Laurie Stevens said that the school attracts people from all walks of life, including kids, adults and young professionals for a variety of motivations. CSL is expanding its reach by offering customized language classes to local organizations and schools, including the Mountain Arts Community Center on Signal Mountain, Lookout Mountain School and the city of Chattanooga.
