課程和等級

ELS 課程根據您對英語的掌握程度分為 12 個不同的熟練等級。

ELS 的教學涵蓋英語的所有層面,包括聽、說、讀、寫、辭彙、語法和發音。 新學生抵校後將進行考試,並按照成績編入以下 12 個熟練等級中的一個等級: 等級 101 至 112。每個等級在教師帶領下每週進行 20 至 30 課時的學習,每個等級的學習持續四週。

您將在學期中體驗:

  • 課堂作業—積極地與其他學生和教師進行討論;會話任務
  • 聽力理解練習(透過磁帶、軟體、小品和角色扮演)
  • 寫作技巧培養(透過練習和寫作任務)
  • 透過小測驗、考試和教師書面評價經常性地提供進度反饋
  • 透過語言科技中心 (LTC) 達到個人語言目標的機會
  • 透過接觸美國!(Contact America!) 活動和遊覽活動在現實環境中練習語言

升入更高等級

每個為期四週的學期結束時,成功達到該等級要求的學生將升入更高一級的 ELS 學習,並立即開始新學期。
此評估所使用的指標包括但不限於:

  • 課堂上技能的展現情況
  • 小測驗和考試成績
  • 家庭作業完成情況
  • 標準化等級考試(期末考試)成績
