What You'll Learn:
In the first 10 lessons, you'll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for and giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for and giving basic directions, and much more. You'll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills. In the next 10 lessons, you'll build on what you've learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations, and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You'll understand more of what you hear and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.
