About Your Language Connection

We understand that learning a new language can be challenging. Discovering the best method for you, while making it fun to learn and utilize a new language, is our ambition.

Our mission is to provide people, businesses, and organizations language classes that are specifically designed to meet their communication needs.

Over the years, Your Language Connection (YLC) has translated many report cards and school letters, helped reduce accents and improve language skills for many foreigners, taught Spanish to city teachers to aid in their communication with students and parents, held summer Spanish camps for children, and offered many private classes to adults, children, and families. YLC is consistently improving the language classes and services offered, as the needs of the community change and grow. Michelle Salinas and YLC understand that the demand for language learning is imperative—for all ages—in today’s society.
