The Signum Language Centre’s Adult Level program is the perfect place for students, professionals, travelers, or the intellectually curious to gain the language skills that they want and need.

 

Our Courses

Signum Language Centre courses follow the Common European Framework Reference for languages.  We start with two beginning-level courses, A1 and A2, and then proceed to two intermediate-level courses, called B1 and B2.  An advanced course, C1, may also be available.  Each course is essentially the equivalent of a one-semester college class or a full year of secondary-school instruction.  Our courses are designed for completion in twelve weeks, though our students may vary the speed of the course to suit their own needs.

Our Classroom

There are two components to each of our courses.  The centerpiece of each course is an 18-hour series of recorded video lectures, designed to introduce you to new topics and concepts in your language.  These are broken into many separate sessions, each of which is accompanied by assigned reading and homework exercises.  The videos can be uploaded and watched on almost any device, and you can review them as ofted as necessary.

Your independent work with the videos is only part of the story, however.  You will also be placed in a small classroom group of 6-10 students, which will meet with your teacher twice every week for an hour.  In these sessions, you will review your lessons, discuss your work, and ask any questions about the material you might have.  For many people, the help of a dedicated teacher and the support of a small group of your peers are the difference between frustration and success in the challenging undertaking of mastering a new language.

Enrollment and Tuition

There are two different options for enrollment in courses at the Signum Language Centre.  Most of our students choose to take advantage of our whole program by registering for our Full Enrollment.  Once you are enrolled, you will get access to the lesson plans, assignments, and videos for your course, and we will get in touch with you shortly by email about your live class session assignment.  The tuition rate for Full Enrollment is $500 per course.

If you are an independent learner and would simply like to purchase our video series to use on your own, you should choose our Video Enrollment.  Our Video students will get access to our course page which will provide our lesson plans and our reading and homework assignments, in addition to the downloads of the video lectures.  The tuition for Video Enrollment is $150 per course.
