This is the second level of our series of four comprehensive courses focusing on all four basic language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

Classes feature a balance of structural and communicative activities to optimize learning. Classes meet twice weekly for two hours, for two 13-week semesters.

Format

Our online hybrid language courses make language learning flexible and convenient. The use of both synchronous and asynchronous delivery styles allows for both real-time virtual classroom conversation practice (synchronous delivery) and self-paced study (asynchronous delivery). The synchronous delivery style will occur during the scheduled class dates and time, using Zoom for videoconferencing, chat and screen sharing for class instruction and pair/group work. The asynchronous delivery style uses Brightspace, an online environment where learners can access class materials and resources for self-paced study throughout the week. Educational activities can include exercises, readings, forums, audio/video files, quizzes, tests, assignments, oral and written presentations.
