Unfortunately grammar is essential if you want to learn a language. In each of the building blocks in our building block system there is a certain amount of grammar; however, we recommend participants take some additional lessons in grammar. Once the grammar lessons are ordered, the instructor will include them in the lesson plan in the most logical order possible, or – if the participants prefer – the sequence in which the grammar lessons are taught can be agreed upon before the course begins.
