We offer a six – level General English program with courses organized in a sequential order from the beginning to the advanced level.

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.
