The International Learning Center offers a fresh approach to learning English with our proprietary WorkPlace Plus curriculum. We have worked with the publisher to expand the lessons using ancillary materials and uniquely crafted games and puzzles in order to offer a complete learning experience for our students.
We offer six levels of English as a Second Language, as well as four levels of preparatory classes for those who are learning to read and write for the first time. A special reading class is part of our ESL curriculum for more specific help. From time to time we take field trips to a grocery store, bank, clinic, library and easily affordable restaurants. There, students learn and use the English needed for each place, gaining confidence for activities of daily living. We also offer differentiated reading instruction during Reading Club. This instructional time is free and optional.
Ladies’ Classes are on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:30 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. These classes are taught by women.
Family Classes, with men and women in the same classroom, are on Tuesday and Thursdays from 6:00 p.m. until 8:15 p.m. Classes are taught by men and women.
Student Visas, Because English classes at the ILC run for 4 1⁄2 hours each week, we cannot offer documents for student visas, which are only available to full-time students. However, students are welcome to attend the ILC in addition to their full-time English classes.
Morning Nursery & Pre-K
In the morning, children ages three to four will go to Pre-K for school preparation. They will learn about colors, shapes, numbers, the alphabet, role play, sequencing and manners.
Nursery care is available for infants and children up to two years old in the morning. These children will be in their own nursery, with learning activities and play on their level.
Our nursery and preschool have been recently updated with new toys, books, and furniture.
Nursery care is available for infants and children up to age four in the evening. They will play and do learning activities on their level.
Tutoring and homework help are available to student’s children in Kindergarten through 6th grade. This takes place while their parents are in English class on Tuesday and Thursday nights. When children have finished their homework, they will play games and work on activities that encourage conversation and help them to learn English.
American culture of the highest moral caliber is taught two different ways at the ILC. First it is taught during the optional Reading Club after the ESL portion of class. Secondly, it is taught through utilization. We celebrate most of the major US holidays at the ILC.
Each May the ILC has a formal graduation/promotion exercise. The students march into the auditorium to “Pomp and Circumstance” while the audience stands out of respect. Students are honored for their achievements with many special awards.
