Students will participate daily in core classes, which will focus on principle language instruction: reading, writing, listening, and speaking, as well as afternoon courses with a specialized focus on culture, politics, media, etc. Our small class sizes (~15 or less) and use of materials developed specifically for an intensive environment will allow attendees to complete a full academic year (12 academic credits) of language study across all areas of language learning.
