ESL Program Introduction

This class is communicative-based with an emphasis on speaking and listening skills. There are five different levels of study, from beginner through advanced. A placement test helps us find the best class level for each student. At the end of each four-week session, each student will receive a written evaluation and have a one-on-one counseling with one of their teachers. This is how we help you monitor your progress. After each three month semester, students receive a report card. After their course, students receive a GEOS certificate.
Our TOEFL Preparation course is designed to help students develop and train the skills of listening, writing, speaking, and reading required for the test. The course is intensive and requires a lot of work on the students' part. Students will learn critical thinking skills and strategies that will help them feel confident while taking the test. The curriculum of this class is always based on the latest version of the TOEFL test.
