Classes By English Level
All our teachers are certified and native English speakers. IIE's original program is based on the textbooks of University of Cambridge and Oxford University. The dynamic classes are based on weekly themes, and focus especially on communication skills. They learn speaking, listening, reading and writing skills - all while having fun with students from around the world! Students write a daily journal about what they did in the morning activity. They also enjoy learning English through singing songs and playing games. Mini tests take place regularly in order to check the level and improvement. Many former IIE students say "I came to like English!" and "I want to learn English more!"
