The English Teaching Program is made up of 8 levels, each with 80 contact hours:
• Pre-Beginners • Beginners • Level I • Level II
• Level III • Level IV • Level V • Level VI
For students to enter our regular program, they must score at least a 36/100 on the English Teaching Program's Placement Exam. If a student scores between 30 to 35.99/100 and comes close to entering the program, they can become familiar with our program as well as improve their command of the English language by taking a 40-hour Preparatory Course designed by the ETP.
Other courses regularly offered or scheduled by demand are:
• Test Preparatory Courses
Classes are made up of groups from 8 to 16 people and are designed to develop listening, conversational, reading, and writing skills through individual attention to each student. The ETP Program highlights everyday English in different environments and uses materials from a great variety of sources for listening and conversation, including magazines, newspapers, fiction and non-fiction.
The program also emphasizes creative and formal writing as means of practicing new vocabulary and grammatical structures as well as stimulating self-expression and communication.
The staff at the Fulbright English Teaching Program is predominantly made up of instructors whose native language is English. All instructors are trained professionals, receive in-house seminars, and are encouraged to use new and creative methods. The instructors are enthusiastic and create a warm and friendly atmosphere in the classroom, oriented towards a student centered learning process.
The Fulbright English Teaching Program offers 4 cycles per year, each lasting 10 weeks, and is made up of 80 hours of classes per level, 2 hours (120 minutes of classes) a day from Monday to Thursday. The maximum number of absences per cycle is six days.
