This article describes an attempt at organizing a continuing, self-instructional language program designed at the request of a commercial enterprise. The program was to be over a three-year period, and was originally aimed at producing reading comprehension in English, but at the request of the students the program was expanded to add listening comprehension. The 29 students were between 20 and 50 years old, and were grouped according to beginners (14) and non-beginners (15). Each section met twice a week for an hour and a half each time. At the end of the first year, 15 persons decided to continue. The second year, each session met with an instructor for half the time, and without an instructor the other half. In general, these students felt that progress made during the course of this semi-autonomous program was less than what they could have made with the constant presence of an instructor. Some directions for the future are discussed. (AM)
