On arrival, you will be placed according to your level check results. The IEP has up
to 4 levels (depending on total enrollment). You can expect to spend from one to two
sessions in each level (8 to 16 weeks). Moving from one level to the next depends on
your performance in class, grades, test scores and attendance.
There are 3 core classes:
• Writing and Grammar
• Reading and Vocabulary
• Listening and Speaking
