Press Release

July, 2009

The Rotary Learning Center at Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM) is currently registering students for its summer language and computer classes. The six-week summer session will run July 6-August 14, and students may register through July 6.

All classes will be held at NAM's Rotary Learning Center (15555 Kuykendahl, 4th floor). Fees for the courses range from $35-40 and include all required materials.

Four computer courses will be offered: 

  • Introduction to Computers - Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-10:30 a.m.
Students will be introduced to computer terminology, keyboarding
basics and have a brief introduction to the internet and web-based email
that will enhance their understanding of computers and aid them in
future employment environments.
  • Microsoft Excel - Mondays from 8:30-11:30 a.m.
Students will learn the basic functions of this spreadsheet
program, including fundamental accounting, creating charts and managing
a check book.
  • Microsoft PowerPoint - Tuesdays from 1-4 p.m.
Students will learn the basics of this industry-standard
business presentation program by creating slideshows and presentations
with text, sounds and photos.
  • Microsoft Word - Mondays from 12:30-3:30 p.m.
Students will create letters, resumes and simple flyers with
this industry-standard word processing program.


Students interested in learning conversational English or Spanish are
encouraged to sign up for the self-paced Rosetta Stone computer software
classes. These classes are self-led, but bi-lingual classroom
facilitators will be available to answer computer or software questions
from students. English classes are Wednesdays and Thursdays from
12:30-2:30 p.m.  Spanish Classes are Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3-5
p.m.


The Rosetta Stone software enables students to work at their own level
and at their own pace. If students miss a session, they can continue
from where they left off. The course uses audio and visual approaches
illustrating lessons with pictures, words and audio of native speakers.


Students can register in person at 15555 Kuykendahl, Room 425, by phone
