Three Month "Development" Curriculum

Description:  A great way to really feel the language.  This is an excellent choice to get a strong grasp of the language, and (depending upon your first language and how much you know already), really establish a sense of more confidence and certainty in the language.

Three months can really get your roots deeply implanted into the language you want to learn.  This will still be an intensive course, but you'll have a chance to more completely let the language into your mind and life in a more real and total way, and this option would be a true point from which you could venture out into the language world you want to live and explore in.
