A challenging course for people, who already have an understanding or experience of learning a modern foreign language. Considerably more advanced and fast -paced than the average adult education course at the same level. Homework is expected and essential to access the next lesson. Commitment is required. The emphasis is on you being able to speak the language yourself.
