Self -study programming and small group filming and critiquing sessions will focus on students' individual needs. This course is intended as an intermediate/advanced course.

Class sessions concentrate on modifying and monitoring fluency. Some group sessions concentrate on modifying accuracy and address students' individual needs through videotaping and critiquing.
