You should prepare for each class by reading the chapter for that week, as well as any other materials linked in this agenda.

Overall, each class will comprise three main segments ~ a language topic (such as grammar, pronunciation, or vocabulary), something from the textbook and associated materials, and small group activities. Work on the language topics and the textbook materials will also involve small group activitites. Also, since we will cover only the first six chapters of the book, each chapter is listed in the agenda more than once (we cannot do a whole chapter in one week).
