Monday Elective5 Lessons / Week
Small Group10 Lessons / Week
This class focuses on speaking in real-world situations, but also includes listening, vocabulary, reading, writing and grammar. Each week there is a different topic that relates to real life scenarios you encounter while using English in every day life.
There are role-plays, debates and discussions about current topics and current events, travel and survival English, English for work, slang and idioms, conversational English and much more. These skills will help you to speak English better in every aspect of your life.
Students in the 25 and 35 lessons programs take Elective classes each Monday, 9am-1pm. Elective classes are specialized courses that full-time students take in addition to their General English classes. They allow students to focus more intensely on some of the skills covered briefly (or not covered) in the Tuesday-Friday classes. Based on highest demand by students, skills and topics covered in Elective classes include:
- academic English
- current events
- Hawaiian and US culture
- idioms and intonation
- vocabulary through pop music
- English through TV
- business English
This is a unique program in Hawaii as it focuses on developing individual student speaking skills. Classes are limited to five students so that each student gets focused individualized attention. It is perfect for students who have specific goals and limited time to accomplish them.
