Beginner Course

Students will learn to form simple sentences and use basic grammar rules. Students will be challenged not only to speak but also to start to think in a different language.

Intermediate Course

Intermediate language students will increase their vocabulary while conversing using new, more advanced grammatical structures.  Accuracy and fluency develop dramatically at this level.

Advanced Course

Advanced students will continue to build on previously learned skills by engaging in conversation, writing, grammar, and reading activities. Students achieve a high level of success in a short period of time.

 

Beyond the Classroom

Excursions

Activities outside the classroom are an integral part of our program. They provide additional learning opportunities in real life situations that enhance classroom learning and develop confidence. Research reveals the importance of practice and repetition of a foreign language in order to consolidate material and advance to the next level of proficiency.
