Intermediate (Level 5):

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

8 week session.

Students engage in practical, real-world English speaking and conversation building. They learn to write with accuracy and depth, expanding their vocabulary and improving on their use of grammar mechanics. They go beyond the basic ideas of topics and can discuss main ideas, make comparisons, state advantages and disadvantages, and explain reasons and conditions. They can now speak of past situations with more fluency, giving explanations and reasons for events and situations. Learners at this level will speak not only about personal and everyday situations but also work-related or academic topics as well. They can go beyond discussion into evaluating, contrasting, and categorizing in English. The course will introduce and explore more complex grammatical structures, with an emphasis on choosing the most appropriate tenses and recognizing various expressions in practical situations. The student will write in English using the grammar and vocabulary they have learned. They will learn how to write persuasively and effectively at the basic level using supporting statements and a thesis. By the end of the course, students should have much more confidence in conveying their ideas, including with greater depth, accuracy, and vocabulary usage.

Low Intermediate (Level 4):

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

8 week session.

By this point, students are beginning to develop basic competence in spoken English. They can take care of their day-to-day needs in English and communicate and understand at a simple level. They are able to ask for clarification though they still need practice with detailed or complex language. They can speak of abstract concepts like personalities, narrate stories, rites of passage, turning points, and describe good qualities for a job interview. They are able to converse with each other to reach solutions for problems and discuss pros and cons of an issue. They can describe hypothetical events and are also able to give instructions. Cognates that exist in their own language will be easily recognized to assume the meaning. The student will begin to transition through sentences and paragraphs with more fluency and flow using transitional phrases and conjunctions. They will be able to do more than describe and will start to compare objects or ideas. Students can use the grammar tenses more comfortably now but still with considerable error that requires correction. They will begin to use and understand the passive and active voice, practicing these two different voices. After completion of this level, the student will be able to discuss in depth about their preferences and thoughts on issues. They will also be able to give instructions and advice using more fluent words and grammar tenses.

After completion of this level, the student will be able to discuss in depth about their preferences and thoughts on issues. They will also be able to give instructions and advice using more fluent words and grammar tenses.

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):

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.
