Our classes will still be held over Zoom for those of you that cannot or do not want to travel to Manchester. The first class of the semester will be hybrid (in-person and over Zoom at same time). The second class will be Zoom-only. The rest of the classes will alternate in the same way thereafter – hybrid followed by Zoom-only. So, all odd weeks of the semester ( Weeks 1,3,5,7 … 15) will be in-classroom and Zoom, and all even weeks (Weeks 2,4,6,8 …14) will be Zoom-only.
Class begins on September 20th, 2023 and runs 15 weeks, Wednesdays.
Class begins at 6:30 pm and runs until 8:30 pm.
This class is designed for students age 15+ years old.
What Will I Learn?

The skill level demanded of this course is B1 and above. This course is intended for those moving out of beginner courses, are ready to construct bigger sentences and converse with other students on various topics.
You’ll find a challenge in learning and adapting to different tenses of speaking as you listen and speak about things you are working on now, things you did last week, and things you’re planning to do tomorrow.
This course will challenge the skills of B1 and higher and is great for more advanced students that have become “rusty” in the language due to lack of use.
