Reading and Writing
Reading skills are improved at each level with a focus on increased speed and reading comprehension. In the lower levels, most materials are in simplified English, yet as studentsâ€™ progress through the program more authentic (non-simplified) materials are used. Students focus on the process approach to writing as well as practice with in-class timed writings.
Listening and Speaking
Speaking and listening abilities for effective communication in a variety of academic settings are developed through oral and aural practice with level- appropriate materials. Students practice responding to, supporting, and developing ideas through discussion and conversation practice as well as informal and formal question and answer activities.
Grammar & Usage
Classes begin with a focus on identifying parts of speech and basic sentence structure. Students study and learn more difficult and complex grammatical structures at each level, and have opportunity for extensive oral and written production practice with a variety of grammatical structures. Students also will learn vocabulary and work on practical English usage.
