Benefit, Goal of this course :
GLI offers a highly personalized education. Classes average just 8 students, typically representing at least 6 different countries per class. Students say they value getting to know their teachers both in and out of the classroom. In fact, the personalized attention from GLI teachers – all who have advanced degrees and years of experience – is one of the school’s main features.
GLI’s curriculum benefits all students, but it reflects the intensive nature of a university-based Intensive English Program. After a comprehensive intake assessment, students are placed according to their level of proficiency. Students may place at different levels in the Reading, Writing, and Grammar courses than in the oral communication skills courses. Modern methods taught by dynamic, highly qualified teachers help students to learn at their highest level. Students are assessed based on a variety of factors, and a detailed progress report is provided following each session. The program is divided into four different levels; Immersion, Developing, Mastering and Accelerated Level. With main focus on Reading, Writing and Grammar and Listening and Speaking, IEP also offers elective courses. Elective courses change each session, offering students an opportunity to choose from a variety of interesting topics. Your choice of electives will be determined by your level. An elective may focus on a specific skill that you need to work on, such as reading, idioms, vocabulary, computer skills, or pronunciation. Some electives are content-based, integrating all four skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
