Course Description

Achieve English fluency quickly and effectively by following our English Program structure.  The weekly program, Monday-Thursday, starts at 8am till 12 pm.


Our English assessment test measures English proficiency in broad bands and identifies what a learner can do across four skills:  listening, reading, speaking and writing. Based on the results of our assessment tests, adults will be slotted in one of our four level courses where the learning and teacher materials are aligned.

  • Mini Group Course:  Beginners Classes
  • Mini Group Course:  Beginner-Intermediate Class
  • Mini Group Course:  Intermediate Classes
  • Mini Group Course:  Advanced Classes


Our Mini Group Course is a 16 lesson (55 minutes per lesson) structured program for adult learners who wish to make true progress in their English skills.  The integrated English classes are offered Mon-Thursday, 8 am - 12 pm.  We provide integrated and balanced instructions in speaking, listening, reading, writing and pronunciation.

  • Conversation activation lessons to help build conversational competence
  • Extensive listening comprehension practice
  • Tons of video programs to build confidence in understanding natural spoken English
  • Vocabulary flashcards for more practice
  • Interactive grammar lessons

At Bright Beginnings, our curriculum uses the National Geographic ESL program as a baseline structure for our classes for students.  The curriculum encourages self-expression, global citizenship, and active participation in the classroom through cross-curricular topics and stories from National Geographic Explorers.  Lessons are designed to inspire global citizens and promote 21st century skills through readings, videos, audio recordings and activities.  Through authentic, real-world content, big ideas and inspiring stories from National Geographic, the curriculum challenges students to not only understand their world but also to engage with it – all while learning English.  Students will be exposed to different cultures, places, global customs and traditions.


Beyond the classroom, students can learn English by participating in our afternoon excursions around Hawaii and by engaging in additional English practice on our online system.

In the afternoons, teachers and students can go out on customized excursions exploring the Magic of Hawaii.  From casual 'get to know your teacher' events, to taking hikes on beautiful hiking paths, you can participate in fun activities.

At home or at the center, reinforce skills through our structured online English learning system for adults which is proven to improve results.  The online learning offers additional individualized instruction and is an excellent tool for blended learning.
