Intensive Summer English Program for International Students

Success! Learning Center offers an intensive seven-week English immersion course. All instruction is in English only. Students focus on reading, writing, speaking, and listening, strengthening both fluency and comprehension in all areas. ESL levels taught include beginning through advanced (college entrance). TOEFL preparation and practice is also available.

New students complete an English language placement test to identify their individual strengths and weaknesses. Each student then works on an individualized curriculum adjusted to their level and needs. Our teacher:student ratio is 1:4 and each student receives one-on-one and small group instruction from the lead teacher and her aides.

Although a shortened two-hour (one class period per day) option is available, most students progress far more rapidly in the four-hour (two class periods) and six-hour (three class periods) programs.
