Beginner students read the alphabet and simple words and progress to longer terms and shorter sentences. Intermediate students read from textbooks, short chapter books, and other reading material. Native-level materials that promote new vocabulary and proper reading cadence are used with advanced students.



As we generally begin teaching students who have entered elementary school, our beginner students start off writing individual letters. Through workbooks and printouts, students continuously work on their writing skills. By the time students reach junior high school, they are taught how to express their opinions in writing and to write with clarity and structure.



Students practice speaking in the lessons by interacting with the instructor and fellow students. We teach basic self-introduction phrases and use textbook repetition and flashcards with beginner students. For more advanced students, role-play activities, reading aloud newspaper article passages, and longer texts are the primary tools used in lessons.



Phonics is the teaching of sounds made by individual letters and letter groups or blends. We start off with our younger students in learning the alphabet, short vowel sounds, long vowel sounds and then to blended sounds.



Listening skills are reinforced in the classroom by listening to the instructor's explanations and examples. Students are also exposed to different speech patterns via online and recorded voices and fellow students' interactions.
