Classes are 135 minutes long (three 45-min periods with two 15-min breaks). A textbook is provided. Language beginners are accommodated. This class meets a total of 30 times during the school year. There will be no class during the usual school holidays. Additional Saturdays when the class does not meet will be communicated after the session starts.
