There are eight levels of study:
Language Academy classes are small and carefully graded. The maximum number of students in an Executive Course is 5 and there is a maximum of 12 students in a General English class. This rule applies to all daily courses.
All courses are multinational and English is always the means of communication with the teachers and with other students.
When you arrive at the Language Academy, a member of Language Academy staff will meet you and check your registration. Next you will be asked to take a placement test composed of a written and listening test. Then you will have an interview with the Director of Studies or a Senior Teacher. During this conversation your understanding of spoken English will be assessed. Level placement is based on the combined results of these two tests. During the first day, Language Academy staff will introduce you to the school, the local amenities and life in Fort Lauderdale.
Medical treatment can be very expensive in the United States. Insurance can be arranged through the school for doctor's visits or urgent hospital treatment for a nominal amount per month. The Administrator of the Academy will assist you in making appointments with doctors or dentists if you need treatment during your stay. If you have any problems during your stay, please discuss them with us.
Fort Lauderdale is an attractive residential area and offers countless free-time activities. The Museum of Modern art is within walking distance and so is world-renowned Las Olas Boulevard, a shopping and restaurant heaven.
