Schedule, Fall 2017: Saturdays, Sept 16th - Dec 9th , 9am - 1pm (till noon the 1st 3 weeks), B-4290, 3200 Jean-Brillant  
 

Each class will include segments on each of the four skills -- reading, writing, listening, and speaking. However, the order will vary, and sometimes the activities will be combined.

You will have homework and in-class activities every week--writing, language exercises, class activities! You have to keep all that organized in a folder or notebook and turn it all in near the end of the course for grading. You will get feedback and corrections on your work as we progress through the course -- but a grade only at the end.

You are expected to prepare for each class by checking this website and reading the materials for that day (some are linked in the agenda below the calendar).
