We will keep class sizes small (10 - 12) to foster quality interaction with instructors and peers using a fresh and diverse set of tools. A final schedule will be negotiated depending on the location of the students. However, the general format will be approximately 9 am - 11:30 am and 1 pm to 3 pm, US Central Time, Monday through Friday. Students can expect two to three hours of direct contact with your full class, interspersed with group work, independent exercises, and individual meetings. Through engaging, fun co-curricular activities and tutoring in the afternoons and evenings, we will surround you with the opportunities to live their language.
