BASIC

Classes focus on providing students with concrete learning objectives and a sense of progress through real-world contexts. Students are encouraged to practice the language in common situations and this motivation engages them to participate more and more, not only during class, but also in the school environment. At the end of the level, they are able to introduce themselves and participate in social conversations.

PRE-INTERMEDIATE

Students gain repertoire in vocabulary and expressions for both formal and informal situations. There is exposure of written and auditory content so that at the end of this level, new topics are familiar to students and there is more practice for both oral communication and, now, for writing. At the same time, pronunciation is another factor that gets attention in the classroom.

INTERMEDIATE

At this level, students' fluency is emerging and the focus is on enriching grammatical structures, idioms and strengthening the ability to communicate successfully in any verbal tense on numerous subjects. The first traces of safety and language independence are seen at the end of this level.

PRE-ADVANCED

Students consolidate and expand their knowledge in everyday situations and are already able to express their opinions at different levels of formalities. Both reading and writing are already evolved and written and oral summaries are already in progress. This is where language security and independence arrive!

ADVANCED

Students practice using all the knowledge acquired so far: mixed verb tenses and new words are added to the vocabulary, making use of prefixes and suffixes. Emphasis on pronunciation is again taken up in order to sharpen effective communication. At the end of this level, students are ready for academic, social and work situations.

PROFICIENT

Using natural conversation skills, students use a wide range of structures to express different concepts. Vocabulary is enriched by focusing on idioms and synonyms. Student are taught to use the appropriate word depending on the situation. Pronunciation of difficult sounds and natural rhythm and intonation in conversation are emphasized.
