Attendance

If you miss 10 hours of class time, you will receive a warning letter.

If you miss 20 hours of class time, you may be asked to leave the program (which includes homestay).

Placement

When you arrived, you took placement tests. As a result, we placed you in the level where you will be most successful.

During the first week of classes, your teacher further assesses your language abilities. Occasionally, students are moved to a lower or higher level.
