Intensive English Program Academics Overview
ILI’s Intensive English Program (IEP) offers highly interactive, student-centered classes for academic, professional, and personal goals. Because our program is small, students enjoy one-on-one support, personalized lessons, and total immersion in English.
The IEP curriculum is based on the 6 English levels of the CEFR (Common European Framework). Each monthly IEP session focuses on the English needs and interests of the individual students. Classroom activities combine speaking, listening, writing, and reading skills in a dynamic environment. Students learn both English and culture in a warm, welcoming New England community.
Student performance is measured through classroom participation, homework, monthly tests, and on-going teacher and self-evaluations. Students who show satisfactory progress, participate in class, and attend at least 80% of classes receive a certificate of completion.
