Standard English Course (20 lessons/week)
This English course is communicative based with an emphasis on developing speaking and listening skills. Our Standard English course is designed to help ESL students improve both spoken and written English. With six levels of study, this course features a comprehensive curriculum of integrated skills - grammar, vocabulary & idioms, speaking & listening, and reading & writing.
You can study English with our professional, experienced and attentive instructors who guide students towards fluency with creative and helpful learning activities. With 14 or less students in the classes, students have plenty of opportunity both to practice their English and meet interesting new friends from around the world.
There are six different levels of study, from beginner through proficient. A placement test helps us find the best class level for each student. At the end of each four-week session, each student will receive a written evaluation and have a one-on-one with one of their teachers. This is how we help you monitor your progress. After each three month semester, students receive a report card, and students receive a GEOS certificate when they finish their course.
Our Standard English Course meets five days per week, for a total of 20 lessons each week. Students work with two different teachers (one for the morning class and one for the afternoon class) and the most up-to-date, effective textbooks and materials available.
Note: 1 lesson = 45 minutes

Practical reading and writing tasks and vocabulary studies are presented as well in our 6 available levels.

During this class, students will cover a variety of topics while practicing English conversation management, conversational styles, and pronunciation.
