This full-time learning program is 6 hours per day and 30 hours every week. Our classes include Listening and Speaking class, Reading and Writing class, Culture class, and Specific interest class.
We make sure our curriculum helps the student learn and develop the four language skills in various settings, including classroom and social settings. In our culture class, we not only learn about American cultures in class but also take students outside to experience the "on-site" learning.Progress tracking - before you start, we will give you an initial assessment and set study goals that you would like to accomplish. During your study, we will keep track of your progress using assessment plans for English learning students to ensure that you are improving and working toward her own study goals.
A few highlights about our program that you would experience nowhere else are:
At the beginning level, you will have both English-speaking and Mandarin-speaking teachers to teach her English. In this way, you are immersed in an English environment and is also given the support you will need as a second-language learner. With our Mandarin-speaking teachers, you will be able to talk about your struggles, study problems, and interests, etc. Based on your situation, we will tailor our teaching to provide the most effective scaffolding. The instruction ratio of English-speaking and Mandarin-speaking teacher will start from 50:50 and gradually change to 90:10 or fully English-speaking teacher based on her need.
You will have the opportunities to interact with our current native English-speaking students. This has been evidenced to be a very effective way for students to develop their target language skills. You are welcomed to get involved in or just have fun at any of our school events where you can improve your English communication skills in authentic settings.
