Objective: This would be either a trial run, or a very intense session in which I'll give you a lot of information and ways in which you can you can then work a lot on your own time through the many tools I'll give you to think about your language growth.  You can of course choose to later take more classes also.

Encourage them to book follow-up sessions if they seek deeper exploration of other topics or continuous improvement in their language abilities.
