    Here are some of the components of our program:

    Listening: Students learn to understand English spoken in a wide range of contexts.

    Speaking: Students learn to speak English, with increasing accuracy and fluency.

    Reading: Students learn to read in English with increasing comprehension for a variety of purposes.

    Writing: Students learn to produce written English with increasing fluency and accuracy.

    Culture: Students learn concepts that result in knowledge and awareness of the history and culture of their classmates
