Level One Classes


Level one meets once a week for 1 hour, and is for complete beginners or those who want to start from scratch. In 10 weeks, students will be introduced to the sound and feel of the language, while learning to communicate in various real life situations.

Each aspect of communication is equally emphasized in level one — listening, speaking, reading, and writing. These skills are taught totally in language, and with absolutely no boring drills!

We will send you details on where to purchase the course material after you register. The class is an excellent opportunity to meet like-minded people, and to have fun practicing.

After completing level one, students will be able to:

  1. Greet others, give personal information, ask for personal information, and describe themselves and others.
  2. Express what they like to do in their free time, where they like to go for fun, when they like or want to do those things, and how to invite others to join.
  3. Ask a friend what they like to do, to invite a friend to do something fun, go shopping, and order food in a culturally authentic context.

Whether you’re learning a language for business, pleasure, or enrichment, level one will provide the foundation for communicating confidently and competently in lots of important situations of daily life.

Traveling soon? Level one is the perfect base to help you get around!

Spring classes start March 11th!
