Level Placement Test and Orientation
Within 24-hours after booking your course, youâ€™ll receive your personalized username and password for the online iLab. Before traveling, you will take the Level Placement test online. This test will measure your language level and ability. From the results of this test, our academic team will place you in one of six language levels. When you arrive at the school, you will receive your schedule as part of your orientation day as well as further activities and information. As your English language skills become stronger, youâ€™ll be promoted to the next language level. You may speak to your teacher if you feel you are in the wrong level. Please note: you will have both morning and afternoon classes.
Special Interest Courses
Depending on your course type you may also select a number of special interest (SPIN) classes. The selection of SPIN classes varies throughout the year and a student may not be able to repeat the same SPIN class. Each lesson is 40 minutes in length, and two lessons are combined into one eighty-minute teaching period.
All English language school courses include six iLab sessions per week. iLab sessions complement and reinforce classroom learning in an interactive on-line learning environment. *Please note: the iLab is not included in the Basic Course.
