How much do lessons cost?
After a small, one-time registration fee of $70, the cost for one-on-one private lessons is only $50.00 – $52.00 per hour. With your ILP PLUS bonus, you receive a full hour of lessons, rather than the industry standard of only 45-50 minutes, which gives you 33% more value. Group lessons cost even less, with prices reduced according to the size of your group. Books and materials typically cost between $80-$150.

What is the difference between the Intensive and Standard Courses?
During a Standard Course you will have lessons one or two times each week for two hours. For those that choose to enroll in an Intensive Course to accelerate their learning, you will have lessons Monday through Friday for one or more weeks, and you will study 2-8 hours each day, depending on your initial language assessment and your individual needs, goals and time.

Do you offer group lessons?
Yes, group lessons are offered by special request of a company or group. Most companies ultimately decide to have their members take one-on-one private lessons because the students make much faster progress when learning this way. To book group lessons or information on pricing, please call +1 (513) 791-9293 or email SandraRoberts@SchoolOfLanguage.com.

Do you offer Business English Courses?
Yes, we offer courses that help you improve your business English, so you gain the necessary knowledge and confidence to help you in negotiating, making presentations and other important skills you need to conduct your business with international languages and cultures.

Can you help me prepare to take the TOEIC or TOEFL test?
Yes, we can help you prepare to take the TOEIC® or TOEFL® test. Your training and coaching with International Language PLUS will utilize the renowned iBT format to fully prepare you for your TOEIC® or TOEFL® test. 

Can I take the Official TOEIC test at your school?
Yes, if you are a current student or have completed one of our TOEIC® Preparation Courses, you are eligible to take the TOEIC® test at International Language PLUS.  To get started, please call +1 (513) 791-9293 or email Sandra@SchoolOfLanguage.com.

How long does a language assessment take?  
A language assessment usually only takes about 45 minutes.  During the assessment we will check your speaking, listening, reading comprehension and writing skills, so you can be sure your assessment is accurate.

When can I take my lessons?
To accommodate your schedule, lessons are available for you during and after the typical American workday and even on weekends. You can schedule your lessons Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. and on Saturday between 9:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.

What are the qualifications of your teachers?
All teachers at International Language PLUS are native-fluent, have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited university. Some instructors have master’s degrees and doctorate degrees. All of our teachers have completed ILP instructor’s training, the best in the business. ILP’s teachers all believe the responsibility for your learning rests with your teacher–They are committed to working with you in a way that matches the teaching to your learning style. This sense of responsibility motivates us to deliver you a robust learning program full of value, setting you up for success in your new language and culture.

Will I have the same teacher for each lesson?
In most cases, you will have the same teacher for your entire lesson series.  We accommodate each student’s needs according to their personal preferences and availability, so if you choose to have two or more lesson times each week, you may have more than one teacher, but those teachers will always be the same for your entire lesson series. 

Where will my lessons be held?
You can have lessons at our school in beautiful downtown Blue Ash, or at your office or in your home, whichever is your preference. We can even conduct your lessons online via Skype. The cost of the lessons is the same, no matter how you choose to take your lessons. There is not even a cost for your teacher’s time to get to and from your location–There is only the U.S. Internal Revenue Service standard per-mile fee for lessons held in cases where your teacher is physically at your office or in your home.

Will I get a certificate?
Yes, you will receive a Certificate of Completion at the conclusion of your lesson series.

Can children enroll in courses? 
Yes, we teach English as a Second Language to children as young as four years old.

Why is “PLUS” capitalized in your company name?
When founder Sandra Roberts first started ILP, she included the word “plus” in the company’s name to keep herself and her growing teaching staff focused on delivering additional value beyond simply teaching a language’s words and phrases. Sandra’s motivation for this was born from her personal experience of having lived overseas for more than a decade, and wanting others to be well-equipped to succeed when finding themselves in a new language and culture.

For nearly 35 years, this has resulted in thousands of students stating that they love learning at ILP. That love of learning occurs as a direct result of the ILP staff and more than 200 teachers’ commitment to our students and clients benefiting from the International Language “PLUS”:

  • The “P” stands for Practical Application with teachers actively coaching and encouraging you as you learn new customs and lifestyles so you feel comfortable and respond correctly in a new culture. 
  • Your Lessons are Customized to your preferred learning environment and setting, with the ILP team adapting to your preferences. You can choose to learn in groups, privately and even online from the comfort of your home or office. 
  • You get Unbeatable Value from your teachers, with a complete hour of teaching in every lesson instead of the typical 45-50 minutes other companies give so they can squeeze more students in per teacher. That’s 33% more teaching, free!
  • You will Share Local Life with the ILP team and our community. You will have dinner in our homes, make new friends and explore the city to make Cincinnati feel like home.
