Origin Story: Learn a Second Language Through the Bend Language Institute

At home with the kids … maybe now is a good time to finally learn another language. Late last year, Samantha O’Connor visited the Bend Language Institute, a business that has now moved many classes online in the wake of the pandemic. Today we look back at how the local language center got started. This is their origin story.

Thanks to Bendbroadband Business for giving us the time and resources to tell the stories of Central Oregonians who have turned their passion into a profession with a new edition of Origin Story every Friday on Central Oregon Daily.

 

Destination Oregon: A Visit to Frenchglen

We know you can’t go on a trip now, and to be honest, we thought about putting our series called Destination Oregon on hold, but we also know, being cooped up, it might be nice to go on an adventure right here on your screen.

Small towns may have the toughest recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Dave Jones takes us to one of Oregon’s smallest, Frenchglen in Southeastern Oregon, in this classic edition of Destination Oregon.

Thanks to the folks in Frenchglen for showing us around and join us on Thursdays for another new edition of Destination Oregon where Dave Jones takes you to some of the most interesting and beautiful places across our state.

Every week Sam introduces us to people who have turned their passion into a profession. This week we are doing an encore presentation of Flyte Camp.
