The curriculum emphasizes practical application of language skills. Directors meet on a regular basis to review all academic and curricular issues to ensure uniformly high quality programs at all schools.Classroom activities focus on developing all four-language skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking with an emphasis on communication. Students often work in pairs or groups to increase their English comprehension through interactive activities. Real-life topics (work and society, for example.) are explored each session providing opportunities for students to practice English in real-life situations both inside and outside the classroom. Homework varies from program to program.

Students should expect to work within each level for one or two sessions (4-8 weeks) or an average of 8 weeks depending on their test results and attendance. All levels, however, have 3 months of curriculum.Whether you are a complete beginner or an advanced English speaker, this superb overall course will give you the skills and confidence necessary to get to the next level of proficiency.
