Why AELS Requires You to Sign Up for Quarters instead of Months?

Why AELS Requires You to Sign Up for Quarters instead of Months?

Plenty of other language schools let students enroll whenever they want for however long they desire. They can enroll for 4 weeks, 8 weeks, or 10 weeks with no problems. However, at American English Language School, each level of our ESL program is 3 months, so the minimum amount of time students can study is 3 months. Are you wondering why you must study for a minimum of 3 months? 

First, when students enroll in an ESL program, they tend to be shy or embarrassed to participate during the class. If students don’t participate, it prevents them from improving. In order to help students improve as much as possible, each level of our ESL course is 3 months long. During the first week of classes, teachers and students work on getting to know each other. Students work on introducing each other and learning about their fellow students. They also do some ice breakers to feel more comfortable with each other. We do this to make students feel more comfortable participating in the classroom. The more participation, the more improvement. 

Additionally, when students can enroll whenever they want and for however long they want, the students are constantly changing. In our ESL program, each week has a new unit topic. At the end of the week, students are tested on what they learned throughout the week and go over the test with their teacher. Students will also have a midterm and final based on what they have learned. For students who join in the middle of the course, they will miss a lot of crucial information. Furthermore, it makes it hard to stay comfortable participating in the classroom when students are constantly leaving and arriving. 

Lastly, at American English Language School, we want students who are serious about improving their English. We believe that only studying for a couple of weeks is not going to help students improve. Learning English takes time and can’t be rushed. We feel like 3 months is an adequately enough time to make progress in your reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. However, we always recommend students to  study for at least 6 months to 1 year to make real progress. 

So, if you’re committed to improving your English, American English Language School’s ESL program is perfect for you! Email info@aels.edu for information about our ESL program and how to apply.
