You will learn to acquire a sentence/paragraph-level command in various topics around everyday life for college students and beyond.

The course meets two hours a day, five days a week. There is no clear distinction between lecture and recitation. However, the lecture component focuses on reviewing grammatical concepts and expanding cultural concepts, and the recitation focuses on developing speaking accuracy and fluency in a culturally appropriate manner.
