High Beginner (Level 3):

This class meets: Monday-Thursday from 9:00am-1:30pm or Monday-Tuesday from 9:00am-6:30pm

8 week session.

At this stage, the student will learn how to composite simple sentences and write on a simple level using description and narration. They will be able to talk and write about their childhood, their lifestyle, technology issues, travel plans, personality features, and so on. Students will attain a stronger sense of sentence structure and have a larger vocabulary to communicate and translate ideas from sentences into paragraphs. The student will depart from the basic beginner’s grasp of English to a more intermediate grasp of the language. The student will be better able to describe situations and requests. They will embark on expression of abstract ideas and begin to build a foundation to convey abstract ideas. Grammar will focus on strengthening their knowledge of the simple present tenses, simple past tenses, perfect tenses, future tense, and more advanced grammar tenses such as the past progressive. They will also learn transitional words and phrases that will help to make their speech and writing smoother and more fluent.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 1&2 or receive a passing score on the IEP Level 2 test or appropriate score on placement test

Low Beginner (Level 2):

This class meets: Monday-Thursday from 9:00am-1:30pm or Monday-Tuesday from 9:00am-6:30pm

8 week session.

This course is designed for students who have a basic foundation in English after completion of level 1. The student will expand on their basic grammar skills acquired from the previous level by learning and distinguishing between the present progressive, past progressive, and simple past. They will also begin to create sentences in the past and future tenses using phrases and words relating to the future or past. The student will learn how to use polite questions, imperative statements, indefinite pronouns, possessive nouns, comparatives and superlatives. The student will use their expanded grammar abilities in reading, writing, and speaking in different activities dealing with family, personal interests, travel, sports, food, and invitations. The students will engage in conversation with each other as well as the teacher to better master their abilities. A student in this level will be able to talk about the past and future, give their basic opinions about experiences, and ask about other people. A student in this level has enough proficiency to use the language to communicate basic ideas about themselves, hobbies, and more physical activities, but is still at a beginner’s level.

Program Requirements:

  • Applicants must have completed their high school education and be at least 17 years of age by the start of the program. Additionally, applicants must have a basic understanding of the English language.

You may change your status to F1 while in the US if:

  • You are maintaining your current status.
  • Your period of authorized stay has not expired.
