Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to help students build English language and communication skills by constantly interacting with real and practical contexts, and prepare the students for the academic and social communities. Each course focuses on language acquisition in four skill areas: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Students may study as many levels as required.

Students will take a written and oral placement test on the first day where they will be placed into the appropriate level of General English class.
