Review of Service

Flexible learning schedule, focusing on goals of learner. Many international students were focusing on writing but I.E.P or Intensive English program was the most popular. Withing the IEP student are focusing on:

Grammar - Focus on oral and written communication

Conversation & Writing - Ways to exchange information, such as debate, persuasive argument, formal vs. informal English, and proper use of each; personal topics

Idioms - Familiarization with common expressions encountered in daily life

All of above were balanced and adjusted to strength of learner in them (e.g. I was strong in Grammar and they adjusted it so that I had less hours focusing on grammar and more on idioms, which are the hardest part for non-native English speaker and require a long term participation in daily life in a native Enlish speaking country.


Tips

Always look for schools that give you a possibility to assess your strength and weakness in specific areas of language you are studying and therefore giving you ability to flexibly adjust your learning experience. Also look for schools that are using popular and tested methods of teaching, focus on small groups of people or individual teaching. Better pay a little more and recieve what you paid for, than save money and recieve nothing!
