Notes

  1. Most of the fundamental learning happens in the 15 hours in the morning between 08.45 and 12.15. Any additional hours are beneficial and will help fluency but do not necessarily make the progression from one level to the next much faster.
  2. Every learner is of course different and their progress will be helped by self-study, motivation and exposure to the language outside of the class. The student’s own language also plays a part in the speed of progress.
