OUR CURRICULUM
What makes us different? Let’s start with our series of elective classes that allows you the ability to create a curriculum of English language instruction that enhances your personal development, whether you are an academic student or are a professional and non-academically-bound.

We want you to be an integral part of the community and share your new experiences at home with your friends and family.

OUR TEACHERS
