Learning a new language is different for everyone. One will pick it up quickly while another will struggle to advance.
In our language classes, we hope that students will be able to cover all of the basic skills to advance one level within 16 weeks of classes (two 8-week sessions). The only exception is the low beginner level, which is only 8 weeks. You will be given a final exam at the end of each 8 week session to check your progression and at the end of 16 weeks, you will be promoted to the next level with the approval of your professor.
We try to have 5 consecutive 8-week sessions each year for each program.
