Important Announcements

Learning a foreign language requires time and effort. Recommended allocated time for this course: As students, you are encouraged to learn to manage your time wisely. What does this mean regarding this class? Since it is a 4-credit hour class, you should multiply 4 times 4 which is equal to 16 hours of study time per week for this course. This means that if you divide 16 (hours) by 7 (days of the week), you are expected to study and work in this class for at least 2.5 hours daily. Out of those 2.5 hours, at least 20 minutes should be devoted to studying and memorizing vocabulary daily.
