    If you think age or lack of experience means learning a new language is impossible, this is the class for you! Senior Learners Inc., presents courses that require no prior knowledge, so they are perfect for beginners. There is no memorization required, and there are no exams or grades to cause you stress, just a welcoming environment and a wonderful opportunity to learn something new and exciting. Senior French employs a whole language learning approach designed to be fun and relaxing. In each lesson we will learn a series of short phrases by practicing them together until we feel comfortable with them and we know what they all mean. Then we will use them to have mini-conversations and to play games. We will also watch short videos from well-known television shows and movies to hunt for the phrases we learned and present cultural topics for discussion. We will also discuss topics such as how learning a little French can improve brain health, improve general communication skills, improve understanding of yourself and others, and more.

    An Introduction to the Mysterious Etruscans

    The Etruscan language is unique and mostly a mystery. So, most of what we know about the Etruscans comes from archeology or what others, primarily Romans, have said about them. Lessons from various The Great Courses will provide an overview of what we know about: where they came from; their culture; their legacy in the Roman World; and why their language will probably never be fully deciphered.

    In our law school for seniors we have studied criminal law, civil law and procedure, now we will be looking at the most interesting part of law called torts. This may be a new term. Tort means twisted and is applied in law to a party who has a grievance against another party and is seeking relief. Torts are a part of everyday life: car accidents, medical malpractice,, harmful products, and anything that one may consider a private wrong. I think you will find these sessions the most interesting and practical part of law.

    The persistent question that historically and universally has never been sufficiently answered did effect the creation of religions and philosophies. which sought to attempt a response. Why have none been singularly embraced universally? Is it up to the individual to find meaning ultimately? This course will examine religious and philosophical traditions for what they share in common and where they differ. Also, it will examine the cutting-edge philosophy of Anti-Natalism, which challenges people to consider first what effect will life have for a new child? Now with the latest UN science report that targets 2040 as the beginning of the end of the planet, the question brings exceptional urgency to the meaning of life.
