Course Description The Level I language course focuses on the development of communicative competence in the target language and understanding of the culture(s) of the people who speak the language. The major means of communication between students and instructors will be in the target language. Through consistent and comprehensible exposure to grammatically-correct language, students develop an "ear" for language. By allowing students to proceed with natural language acquisition, fluency is promoted. Students no longer think about grammar rules the main reason language production in traditional classes is typically low. The focus will be on the four areas of language: reading, writing, speaking and listening. Achievement will be measured in these areas by the use of performance-based assessments. These show us what the student can do using the target language.
