Group language courses with CR Languages offer those living and working in the Treasure Valley the opportunity to study another language in a small group setting with a native speaker. Group courses are a good fit for those that work during the day and cannot commit to attending class several days a week, but still want a serious and challenging course in the language.
Currently, CR Languages offers group lessons for Spanish, English, French, German, Russian, Portuguese, and Mandarin. Each language generally consists of at least 7 different levels starting with level one, and each level requires four months of group lessons, though it may very from language to language.
Standard Group Lessons
- Exclusive class sizes of no more than 6 students make sure no one slips through the cracks. It also allows instructors to provide individualized attention to each student.
- Unless complete beginners, all students must take a placement test
- Classes meet once a week for two hours, generally 5:30-7:30 pm
- Classes are taught by native speakers and incorporate a full-immersion methodology
- A course book is used in class and students are expected to study outside of class
- Exams will be administered throughout the course
- Spanish courses include a weekly ‘Clase de apoyo‘.
Life Long Learner Classes
For those that have always wanted to learn another language and now have the time, CR Languages offers a Life-Long Learners class for ages 60+. They follow the same curriculum and format as standard group classes, but at a more relaxed pace and meet during the daytime rather than at night.
