Introductory Sessions in the PC self-study area

In order to use the PC self-study area, participation in a general or language-specific introductory session is required. During the 90-minute session, you will find out about the learning options in the PC self-study area, and you will have an opportunity to explore the possibilities for the language you are interested in.
