Enroll in our Mini Group ESL Course for Adults!
Achieve fluency quickly and effectively by following our English Program structure. Our system called ‘English for a Brighter Future‘, is composed of four parts: assessment, integration, expansion and reinforcement. The weekly program, Monday-Friday, starts at 9am till 4pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and 3pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Part 1: Assessment
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
Part 2: Integration
Our Mini Group Course is a 15 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-Friday, 9 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

Part 3: Expansion
In the afternoons on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 1 – 3 pm, expand your English skills in specific functional areas such as grammar, reading/writing and vocabulary/pronunciation and speaking.

Part 4: Reinforcement
Beyond the classroom, students are encouraged to reinforce their English skills by participating in our afternoon excursions and by engaging in additional English practice on our online system.
In the afternoons, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 1-4 pm, teachers and students will go out on customized excursions exploring the Magic of Hawaii. As a group, the students can decide to follow the suggested excursion plan or they can make adjustments to the excursions based on their group’s interest and preferences. From casual ‘get to know your teacher’ events, to taking hikes on beautiful hiking paths, we offer an extensive list of fun activities to participate in.
At home or at the center, reinforce skills through our structured online English practice system for adults which is proven to improve results. The online learning offers additional individualized instruction and is an excellent tool for blended learning.
