Programmed learning units are the wave of the future. They're basically how most IT classes are taught these days. For basic subjects I don't see any reason why not to go to them or maybe a mixture. When I took a Spanish class at a few years back it was in person. However, most of the work was done outside of class. The textbook was online and the teacher selected what homework assignments through it. It recorded what you had done. You could even record yourself practicing speaking. And it graded the homework. I'm not saying that no in person was needed but it could have been done online. But most of the work was done through a programmed learning unit.
