Each IEP session is 7 weeks in length and includes 20 hours of classroom instruction per week. In addition, we offer optional English language improvement activities on Saturdays, which include monitored language and computer lab sessions and instructor facilitated conversation groups. There are seven levels in the IEP, from basic English instruction in level one to advanced instruction in levels six and seven. Levels one through five (beginning through intermediate) use written materials and classroom interaction, concentrating on the four basic skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and grammar. In the upper levels of the IEP, students study four hours a day, with two hours in a core content course and two hours of electives. The level six core is an advanced-intermediate academic reading/writing class; in level seven (the most advanced level) students read unabridged texts and prepare academic writing assignments. Students choose from an array of electives, the content of which is designed to meet specific needs or interests. The elective courses include test preparation (TOEFL, TOEIC, GMAT, SAT, GRE), business, literature, film and other social science and humanities subjects.
