This guide is intended to help you self-place into an appropriate level. Our classes do not have prerequisites and do not require a traditional placement exam. If you have used language learning apps or software and have questions about which level to choose, please contact us.
Beginning level I is designed for true beginners with zero exposure to the language. Beginning level II is the continuation class and newcomers with a basic understanding of the language are welcome. View our syllabi below for help with choosing the appropriate level for your skills and background. Topics may vary in order to align best with students' interests. Note that not every level of every language is taught each term.
Advanced Conversation is appropriate for students who have completed our Intermediate level II class or are otherwise advanced learners. Rotating topics in advanced conversation and grammar will be chosen each term to engage and challenge your learning.
Space available in each class is on a first come, first served basis. If after speaking with us you feel a different level would better match your skills, we would be happy to switch you to another class offered during the same semester or another language, if space is available. You may also speak with the instructor for further guidance.
