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.
