The Conversation and Analysis sections are two halves of one course and need to be taken together.
Both are designed to immerse you in the language and give you a practical ability as quickly as possible.

Conversation Sections (1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E)

Conversation (MWF) classes focus on vocabulary development, cultural awareness and learning to use the language naturally.

Analysis Sections (1AX, 1BX, 1CX, 1DX)

Analysis (TuTh) classes focus on learning how to analyze the structure of the language and apply that understanding to accurate use of the language.
