International Language Plus Courses Overview

All of ILP’s courses focus on speaking and listening, so that you can learn to communicate effectively in real-life situations. The courses provide the basics of the language – grammar, vocabulary, and idioms. However, ILP personalizes your lessons to meet your goals.

Before you begin, we will talk with you to understand your goals and assess your level in order to design your course. Then we will plan a schedule to accommodate your availability.

During and after your course, you will receive regular progress reports and feedback. You may also ask any questions to your teacher or ILP staff to ensure that we are meeting your expectations.
