The Strategic Language Institute offers intensive, 10-week modules designed to develop conversational fluency for application in business and other professional settings.
Level I is designed for those who have little or no training in the target language. Emphasis is placed on listening and speaking skills. Students will also acquire cross-cultural competency in the target language.
Level II focus on vocabulary related to personal routine, comparisons, business meetings, advancing in grammar and pronunciation skills.
Level III will offer the possibility of using multiple verb tenses in the production of conversation related to business functions and social situations.
Level IV consolidates grammar, vocabulary, practice, cultural aspects, and proposes a final project on a chosen business point, involving research and oral presentation.
At the end of each module, students will be tested using standards developed by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. All SLI modules are limited to 15 students to ensure maximum progress. A Certificate of Completion will be given to the student after all four modules are completed.
