This method of design identifies different layers of context and to design for each level.

Level One of design is a modular design for each identified domain in the language, such as pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, communication, etc. Level Two is the linear approach of the curriculum with a specific course or flow in a set time, such as  a semester. Many variations of Level Two is possible to be based on the holistic approach of Level Once design.  The presentation will illustrate the application of the ZLA and demonstrate how it serves the needs of differently skilled learners, as well as the needs of traditional classroom based courses.
