ESL Program Introduction

1. English as a Second Language - ESL is the most popular program at VIA. Our small classes allow students to speak much more than in schools with bigger classes. A combination of grammar, idioms, phrasal verbs, and pronunciation help our students improve their speaking skills quickly and effectively. Morning classes are 4 Skills-based (reading, writing, listening, and speaking + grammar and pronunciation). Afternoon classes are only conversation ("Power Speaking").
