25 General English Lessons per week
General English is divided into 2 categories; Language Development and English Skills. Language Development targets grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation – the foundation for learning English as a second, or other language. English Skills targets the process of communication in all its forms: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. Language is acquired through the Action Oriented Approach and we use a team teaching style in order to maximize the learning potential.

Ongoing Assessment and Regular Practice Exams
In addition to quizzes and tests given on specific material in class, students are given regular listening and speaking assessments (RADIO – every 2 weeks) and diagnostic grammar tests (Itembanker – every 4 weeks, in the student’s last week and upon student request). Students are given the opportunity to take practice IETLS, TOEFL, TOEIC and Cambridge exams. The Director of Studies meets with students one-on-one for academic counseling, extra work targeting growth areas and the creation and implementation of individual study plans.
