Self Placement

Since everyone's prior knowledge and skills will inevitably vary, there isn't a single right answer for where you should start, but we have come up with two ways by which you can find your best fit when starting with us:


  • Schedule to come by the studio/classroom to pick up a complimentary copy of our novella, Lectura (required for all Beginner and Intermediate courses), and read from the beginning. As you go along, it will get harder and harder and probably wade into unfamiliar territory for you. When you start to feel you are not understanding enough for your liking, check out our class schedule and find the class that's currently working in the Unit closest to the Chapter number you reached. If you make it through to the end and don't get bogged down too much by the language, the Advanced course will be a great fit.

  • Take the Units 1-5 final exam (Resources tab: "tests and answer keys") and compare your answers with the corresponding answer key. If you are happy with your results, take the next one: Units 6-10, and keep going until you start to identify your gaps. Find the class that corresponds with the test that gave you trouble. If you test through Units 26-30 and feel comfortable with your results, the Advanced course will be a great fit.

Class Breakdown:


All group classes meet once a week (46 weeks/year).

In addition to offering the classes above to help you keep building your general knowledge and skills, we offer a few specialized classes, which can be a great complimentary class or a solid stand-alone class if you prefer.
