There are four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking which need to be studied and developed from the start of the program. The emphasis on these four areas helps to enable the student to use their knowledge of the language in day-to-day communication. An immersion approach to the language is used for all levels - this means that from day one only the language is spoken in the classroom. This approach helps the student to become comfortable with the language quickly.

- Setting Description:
- We have small classes starting most weeks of the year for all levels - and students tend to improve their language skills rapidly. Classes are taught using the immersion method, which is considered to be the most rapid form of language acquisition. Classes can be taken for varying number of hours per week, with 20 hours per week being the standard program. Local extracurricular activities and excursions are also an important part of the program, and conducted in the local language, as well.
