ELL General English Program

Student Profile: Beginner to advanced, ages 12-17
Class Size: maximum 15

Our weekly General English program combines classroom studies with activities and workshops in the afternoon for students to practice their speaking skills in real-life scenarios. This program was designed for students with emerging and basic English language skills. Classes focus on the development and mastery of listening, speaking, writing, and reading. Content includes vocabulary enrichment; improving knowledge and use of basic and intermediate grammatical structures; and progression from writing simple sentences to creating cohesive, meaningful paragraphs. Teachers integrate the use of a broad range of technologies to apply this content by teaching effective Internet research skills, proper format for email and online communication, and practicing presentation skills with small and large groups.
