Our most popular program, the Intensive English Program includes 30 lessons of instruction per week from qualified, native-speaking teachers.

The Intensive English Program is a comprehensive approach to studying English. You'll have the advantage of three different classes: an integrated Core Class at one of nine FLS levels, a focused elective class covering a specific skill or topic and an Academic Workshop to round out your school day.

Our program places an exceptional emphasis on speaking. Students practice speaking skills frequently in class, receiving regular guidance and correction from their instructor.
