The School´s teaching methodology is based upon the communicative and full-immersion models of language acquisition. We utilize textbooks that draw on contemporary real life experiences that you can relate to and we include active participation in discussions, role-play, and pair and group work. You will be taught by some of the finest, best-trained and most dedicated teachers in the field.

The course is built around a core curriculum providing classes with both structure and flexibility. Classes are offered at 9 levels of proficiency, from beginner to fluency with appropriate text materials provided for each level. All class levels are based on an integrated approach to language acquisition by focusing on the development of speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.

General English classes focus on the development of general language proficiency and an understanding of American life and culture. The courses will prepare you for social interaction and day-to-day activities.

Academic English classes tend to be more rigorous and will prepare you for success at American colleges and Universities. Courses include library research methodology, academic writing skills, note-taking techniques and presentation strategies.
