The program uses a communicative teaching approach, in which students learn through authentic language tasks such as conducting interviews and completing projects and reports. Class size is normally 12 – 15 students. Classes are held throughout the year. Each term is 8 weeks, but each level of the curriculum is 16 weeks (although some students may complete a level sooner).
