On their arrival, each student is asked to complete an English language assessment in listening, grammar, vocabulary and reading. They must also submit one piece of written English and attend an interview with a member of the IEP faculty. Based on the outcome of these assessments, students will be placed in one of six levels.
What you will learn
The IEP and its content have been designed to develop the four core linguistic skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students participate in interactive classes which focus primarily on the acquisition of English language skills and then on the development of broader cultural and academic knowledge.
- Level 1 (Beginner): For students with a basic understanding of English and limited or non-existent reading and writing skills.
- Level 2 (High Beginner): For students with a basic understanding of English, basic communication skills and limited reading and writing.
- Level 3 (Intermediate): For students with the ability to communicate socially and read texts with limited vocabulary.
- Level 4 (High Intermediate): For students with the ability to communicate socially and engage in academic work in English with linguistic assistance.
- Level 5 (Advanced): For students with advanced spoken and aural skills and the ability to engage in academic work in English.
- Level 6 (High Advanced): For students with an English proficiency level that would allow success in the majority of universities despite some linguistic boundaries.
