GENERAL The objective of the Regular Course is to offer students the possibility of studying English within a time frame that permits the student to advance at a measured rate while at the same time combining their studies with other obligations. Course levels range from Elementary (A1) to Proficiency (C2).
ENTRY REQUIREMENTSDue to the existence of numerous levels, in most cases students are asked to complete a level assessment test. Exceptions are made in the case of students soliciting a place in an elementary level course or where a student can provide an official certificate of a level obtained in the recent past.
Relevant information about a student’s previous studies is also taken into account when determining their current level at the beginning of a course. The courses are designed by knowledge and not necessarily by age.
