Intensive English Program

The Intensive English Program consists of seven levels. Each level provides 288 hours of instruction and takes 16 weeks to complete with 18 hours of study per week.


Tutoring: A private tutorial is one-on-one instruction, a semi-private tutorial is simultaneous instruction of two students, who are the same level, by one teacher. Tutorials are offered in the afternoons from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm Monday to Friday. One session is one hour long and there is no minimum number of sessions that you need to take. However, in order to see notable progress, we recommend two to three sessions per week.

Test Preparation: The Test Preparation Program is offered at a five or eight-week interval. The five-week program provides 75 hours of training and the eight-week program provides 120 hours of training. Both programs are 15 hours a week with classes held three hours every day Monday through Friday from 1:30 to 4:30 or 4:30 to 7:30 pm.


English Gym: The English Gym is a membership based speaking class offered twice a week. Instructors build a class around a specific topic and use creative activities to help you practice your fluency. These speaking classes are one hour long and are offered twice a week. There is a group for beginners that meets Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:00 – 7:00 pm and another group for intermediate to advanced level students that meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 – 7:00 pm.
