    double-barrelled , accelerated courses


    Could anyone help me out with the underlined part of the following sentence?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    "I probably might just fit in one of those double-barrelled, accelerated courses in elementary German they've rigged up."

    Here, "German" refers to the language.

    I have looked up the term "double-barrelled", but still don't get what it means in this context.

    Please help me out, thank you.

    Re: double-barrelled , accelerated courses

    As an NES but not a teacher, the closest definition the I can see is:


    2. extremely forceful or vehement [i.e. high powered/intensive].
