Intensive Week A1

Intensive Week

These classes do not follow a specific curriculum. They are great practice for students who want to review or brush up their skills at the A1 level. 

A1 level students understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases. They can introduce themselves, ask and answer simple questions and interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly. The A1 level is usually completed in 100 hours of instruction.


Pace: 21 hours (at cSPACE) or 15 hours (online)
