Intensive English Courses

Course Levels

Five students

All new students at our Intensive English Program take comprehensive placement exams that test spoken English and written English skills before the first week of class. This determines their  Reading/Writing and Listening/Speaking levels.

Our Intensive English Program levels are:

  • Level 1: high beginning
    • Not offered in summer
  • Level 2: low intermediate
  • Level 3: intermediate
  • Level 4: high intermediate
  • Level 5: advanced
