10-week courses

We offer a variety of courses taught at the regular pace, each with a 10-week duration. A 10-week regular course meets for 25 hours per quarter. These courses include progressive language courses at levels A1 through C1 as well as complementary classes in conversation, grammar, and current events for levels A2 through C2. Buy a membership for 12 months of discounts on classes. To save more money, use the bundle pricing option by adding a conversation, grammar or current events class at your level during the same quarter as your language learning class! 

Our 10-week classes are available in-person in Downtown Atlanta, in-person in Roswell, and virtually. 


15-week Intensive Courses

Intensive Courses are designed for students desiring to learn at a more advanced pace. Students will complete all four sub-sections of the level at an accelerated pace with concentrated lessons twice per week. Course participants meet for 90 instructional hours over the course of consecutive 15 weeks and we offer them for the A1 and A2 levels. Both courses are offered as synchronous instructor-led virtual classes. We are planning to continue with A1 Intensive and A2 Intensive, and to add a B1 Intensive Class starting in summer 2022.


5-week Add-on Courses

Our 5-week add-on courses are offered at the end of each Intensive Course for extra review, conversation practice, and exam preparation. They are open to anyone who has recently completed the A1 or A2 level, either in our Intensive Course or in a different class. 2022 courses will be offered in May/June and in November/December.
