Levels

In designing the curriculum for the English language course we rely on the Common European Framework since we understand that the teaching curriculum needs to be comprehensive, clear and coherent. Comprehensive in the way that it can offer a range of language skills, as complete as possible. Clarity means that all information has to be clearly formulated, explicit and understandable to readers. Coherence demands of us to respect the following components:

  • understanding the students' needs
  • defining aims by both students and teachers
  • determining the content of the materials used
  • choosing or creating the material
  • devising teaching curriculum
  • using different teaching methodology
  • appraisal, testing, self-evaluation

Guided by these principles, and having a lot of experience, we have the following levels in our regular English language course:

  • Breakthrough, A1
  • Waystage, A2
  • Strong Waystage, A2+
  • Threshold, B1
  • Vantage, B2
  • Strong Vantage, B2+
  • Effective Operational Proficiency, C1
  • Mastery, C2
