Thus, we begin to understand. As a kind of fulcrum identify your specific goal, from which depend, and teaching methodology, and the time required to achieve it. It is not so important if the price of courses that you are perfect to be slightly higher, and will go a little further. To start to define the level of ownership of your chosen language: not taught this language at all; taught in school, then college or technical college, he taught language in school, high school, then – in graduate school or on some short courses, taught in a special school, and then – on the rise. Variants of goals: to be able to explain (or at least a basic level); to be interviewed by language in recruitment, work with foreigners, talk on the phone to transfer faxes; podshlifovat grammar, learn to speak fluent; get translation skills, and more – on the rise. Next question – to engage in a group or individually? It depends on your preferences and budget. One should not forget that the conversation in a group can more quickly, but do grammar or something to sharpen better when people less. Typically, more than 15 language courses are not gaining, but such a group is able to 'pull' only high-quality teacher. Which course to choose: traditional or intensive? Traditional courses generally do 2 times a week for 2-3 academic hours, with an emphasis on reading and writing. Their advantage is that here are taught to write, and also trained at those universities where there is an exam in a foreign language.
