Upon arrival each student is individually assessed and catered for. Due to the small size of the class and the individual attention from the teacher it is possible to accommodate various levels in one group.
- Basic: three levels
- Intermediate: three levels
- Advanced: two levels
ELMA offers 20 lessons per week. Students are assessed every four weeks and progress at their own pace. Students’ individual needs are accommodated and the course structured to align with the students goals.
Depending on the aptitude of the student it should be possible to become proficient in English in 6-12 months. We prepare those students intending to study at tertiary institutions for the relevant examinations required to gain entry, including TOEFL and IELTS, for which students apply independently. Students are therefore required to register at ELMA for at least 6 months.
In the formal classroom setting students undertake their English Learnership.
Subjects include Grammar, Comprehension and Conversational English. Writing skills, from business correspondence to creative writing, are acquired according to the individual student’s preference. High-tech educational games and programmes expand theoretical knowledge. Focused group discussions and ordered exercises are incorporated into the curriculum.
