Each day includes four intensive 90-minute sessions. With proper breaks between the "quarters" as well as the lunch breaks, it takes about eight hours to complete each day's agenda. Here's the approximate schedule:
|9:00-10:30||Class session (Q1)|
|11:00-12:30||Class session (Q2)|
|1:30-3:00||Class session (Q3)|
|3:30-5:00||Class session (Q4)|
The schedule doesn't have to be 9 to 5. We adapt to local conditions and shift this eight-hour frame accordingly.
