Instructional videos and interactive online materials in the Canvas course platform introduce new grammar and vocabulary and teach pronunciation, listening and reading skills.

Participants practice speaking live with the instructor in small groups of 3-6 students in 30-minute weekly sessions. Participants should be available for the entire one-hour time slot.
