Program of Study

All students are required to take SXU 340 & 341, the two core courses, which meet Monday through Thursday from 9am to 1pm.

Two days focus on reading, writing, and grammar skills; the other two days focus on listening and speaking skills. Materials give students opportunities to use all of their language skills in authentic and engaging ways.

The morning core program consists of 16 hours of instruction per week. Students will then choose 2-4 afternoon/evening electives, depending on which ones they choose, to have a total of 20-22 hours of instruction per week.
