Classes, Levels and Skills Growth

  Classes, Levels and Skills Growth

The ELS Curriculum organizes your English learning into 11 levels of proficiency.

ELS provides instruction in all aspects of English, including listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. New students are tested prior courses enrollment and are placed into one of the 11 proficiency levels: Levels 99-109. Each level consists of 120 class hours of teacher-led instruction, with each level lasting four weeks.

During the session, you will experience:

  • Class work—active discussions with other students and the instructor; speaking tasks
  • Listening comprehension exercises
  • Writing skill development (through exercises and writing assignments)
  • Frequent feedback on your progress, through quizzes, tests and written teacher comments

Advancing to the Next Level
At the end of each four-week session, those students who have successfully met the requirements for that level will advance to the next ELS level of study and immediately begin the new session. Please note, that you'll only advance to the next level if you had compeleted 120 class hours. In Semi-Intensive programs, you will be able to advance to the next level once you complete 3 sessions.

Measurements used for this evaluation include but are not limited to:
