  • Students can study for two weeks (half level) or four weeks (full level).
  • We work with our partners to customize the program to specific needs.
  • Students receive a certificate of completion on their last day of class.
  • Each level takes up to four weeks to complete.
  • Three levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced.
  • Classes generally meet Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time).
  • Students may  or may not complete the whole level depending on how long they stay.
  • Each level covers different objectives and topics.


Students are placed in one of the three program levels based on the results of an English placement test completed online at home before the start of class.


The students' performance will be evaluated through their attendance and participation in the class activities which make them practice the four language skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

Grades: Pass/Fail.

Certificates of completion indicate the number of hours that the student attended.

Course Materials

Each course level has its own textbook provided by Valencia College. Instructors will give students their book on the first day of class. Students must bring a pen or pencil and paper or a notebook every day.
