Our 14 or 12-week, accelerated, online courses range from levels 0 to 7 and offer a strong foundation in all language skills while providing students with lively, collaborative, and challenging language exercises and tasks. Those interested in taking these courses will take a placement test and will be placed in one of our levels.

Our online courses are offered three times a year: fall, spring, and summer. At the end of each term those individuals who successfully complete their levels will receive a certificate of completion.
