Adults Class (MWF) - Beginner

Due to the amount of international work occurring in the Gyeongnam area, as well as the high motivation of Korean nationals, we are offering a twice a week program for various levels of adult English language learners. The American Pearson’s English in Common is a six-level American English integrated-skills course for adult and young adult learners based on CEFR standards and learner outcomes. The goal this curriculum is two-fold: first, to set new standards through its transparency of purpose, interest level, and teachability; second, to address the reality of unpredictable teaching situations that are experienced every day.
