One Week "Ignition" Curriculum

Objective: This can also be a trial week, or a way to continue forward on a weekly basis.  This would also be an intense option as there is less time.  Again, I'll give you a lot of information and ways in which you work a lot on your own time through the many tools I'll give you to think about your language growth, but we'll also work together during class to have more certainty of the thoroughness with which you're learning the materials.  You can of course choose to later take more classes also.
