  • Train all four language skills – reading, listening, writing, and speaking.
  • Use your digital textbook in class and when you study on your own.
  • Interact with other students to work on exercises together.

Time for Self-Study

Please plan to spend some time outside of class for homework and to review.


In our experience, about 100 to 240 hours of active class time are needed to reach the next language level. There are many individual factors. After you have taken a placement test, we would love to help you find the level that is right for you.
