The overwhelming majority of work will be completed in class. There may be some “homework” to do, but any such assignments are intended to be light. Your real advancement will come from practicing the language in real life situations – applying what you have learned in class – not from doing homework exercises. In some cases, there may be a shortened exam at the end of the program and/or short quizzes each week. Advanced students may be expected to complete outside journal assignments on a weekly basis.
You will receive a final grade and evaluation for the course. This is nothing to worry about, as it’s not a competition. Above all else, this is intended to help you focus on areas for improvement in the future. We don’t want students worrying unnecessarily about grades. Instead, our aim is to have students learn at their own pace and in a relaxed atmosphere.← Are there assignments? Grades and exams?
