Our Intensive English Program (IEP) consists of five levels. Each level is comprised with four courses with the exception of the Advanced level which is composed of four sets of two courses and the Test Preparation level which has two courses. The length of each course is 6 weeks and therefore 24 weeks are required to complete each level in the beginner, intermediate, high intermediate and advanced levels. Twelve weeks are necessary to complete the Test Preparation level. However, enrollment in the Test Preparation courses is not mandatory for program completion; students who complete the advanced level may choose whether or not to take the TOEFL preparation courses.

Each level guarantees practice in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Apart from the well-selected materials for students’ theme-based learning, real-life supplementary activities are also provided in the classroom. Lessons are planned with much attention on interaction and a high emphasis on verbal communication throughout the curriculum. We also offer conversation clubs and opportunities to visit local events to practice English language skills.

Our Beginner level consists of four 6-week courses that teaches the fundamentals of the English language and focuses on basic survival and social language skills based on relevant themes and authentic content. English language is made memorable through intensive practice and recycling. In ESL103 and ESL104, key beginning concepts are reviewed and expanded as well as new and challenging material. Lessons are complemented with interactive activities that help students improve comprehension, confidence and pronunciation. These comprehensive courses are ideal for true and false beginning students and no prior exposure to English is assumed or necessary. The following courses are necessary to complete this level:

ESL101: Beginner English I
ESL102: Beginner English II
ESL103: Beginner English III
ESL104: Beginner English IV

Our Intermediate level also consists of four 6-week courses that further develop the fundamentals of the English language and focuses on survival and social language skills based on relevant themes and authentic content. English language is made memorable through intensive practice and recycling. In ESL203 and ESL204, a more rigorous review and expansion of concepts are offered as well as new and challenging material.

Learning is reinforced by exposing students to contemporary and authentic material that is both thought-provoking and intellectually stimulating. Hence, critical thinking is introduced and continuously exercised throughout each course. Skill strategies are practiced and reinforced using interactive supplemental content.
