Levels & Learning Outcomes

Students are placed into one of six levels based on the results of their placement exams. Our levels correlate to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), and each level typically takes 12 weeks to complete.  All of our English Courses and Programs adhere to this structure. It is our goal to offer a large number of options for all skill levels.
