    course descriptions

    Beginner

    Students do not need to have any prior knowledge of the language to take this class. In this level, students will learn the alphabet, basic vocabulary/grammar to have simple conversations (greetings, introductions, directions, etc.).

     

    Intermediate

    Students should be able to understand simple words/sentences if they want to take an intermediate class. In this level students will learn more vocabulary and grammar (i.e. present and past tenses, introduction of subjunctive tense so they can start to improve their speaking fluency).

     

    Advanced

    For an advanced level course, students should be able to use the language comfortably. Students should know enough vocabulary/grammar to make grammatically correct sentences. The main purpose of this class is to improve your speaking fluency (i.e. discussion of cultural topics / debate topics in media).
