Student are given information stating precisely what they are going to learn each week.
Part of the course is now online including easy to complete assessments, revision and home practice.
The classes are split into half levels, meaning students are studying with only those at the same level.
Every five weeks it is possible to move up to the next class by passing an online level test and speaking activity.
At least once in every five weeks students will go out, off campus, to practice what they have learned in a special programme named, ESL in Action.
A social event is scheduled every five weeks to make the most of beautiful Sydney, including trips to an island, BBQ’s in the park and coastal walks.
Students will receive counselling on their course every five weeks from their teachers and an easy to understand report on their progress.
*The CEFR stands for The Common European Framework of Reference, it is an assessment system and is used for all European languages plus Japanese. It has been adopted as the de-facto system for language ability definition.
