    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
