The Academic Year English language courses are based on a curriculum developed to help students improve their English language skills and achieve academic success. Students will gain confidence and fluency in the areas of reading, writing, listening, speaking, grammar and vocabulary. The curriculum is similar to General English but with academic counceling by designated academic advisers. CEL offers 6 levels of general English language courses. Small classes (no more than 12 students per class) ensure that students benefit from individualized attention as teachers cater class material to their personal learning style. New courses start every Monday and each lesson is 45 minutes long. The minimum age is 16 years.
