INTENSIVE ENGLISH PROGRAM
OPMI is committed to provide high quality English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction and orientation in U.S. culture to international students, professionals and other non-native speakers for academic, personal and professional pursuits through the Intensive English Program (IEP).
At OPMI, we provide an education of excellence in English as a Second Language to students from all over the world in order to help develop skills needed for academic, professional, and social purposes.
We offer a six – level General English program with courses organized in a sequential order from the beginning to the advanced level.
Based on the results of the placement test, each student is placed in the proper level of either morning, afternoon, evening, or weekend class.
Each Level takes 200 hours to complete within a 12 – week semester. Each class meets for a minimum of 18 hours per week (one class hour equals 50 minutes). Each Level ends with a Level Up test to assess if students can move up to the next Level.
Classes are offered in the morning, afternoon, and evening from Monday through Sunday.
Our program is designed to help students build confidence and achieve the highest level of fluency and accuracy in English. By taking into full account the most effective means for meeting students’ interests and educational needs, the General English Program goal is to gradually improve students’ reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills to help them strengthen their existing worldwide connections while learning English skills needed for the 21st century.
