You Need To Be Taught For Hours during a Day

A traditional program would run hours a day as well as involve a student studying at home for hours. The truth is that you should learn a language in smaller blocks of time. You should focus on three through four lessons a week for 30 minutes each. This is better than trying to learn a lot of information crammed into three hours.
