Upon the completion of the course, the students will be expected to understand the differences in pronunciation between their native languages and American English pronunciation. They will also be expected to know and identify the eight parts of speech and apply them in constructing functional simple sentences in both written and oral communication. They will be able to read and comprehend written English material on their reading level. They will also be able to carry on a conversation in English.
The 4-hour per day option studies grammar, pronunciation, reading and conversation.
The 5-hour option also has writing.
If the student simply wishes to improve conversation skills then the 4-hour program will be sufficient. However, if the student wishes to work or study in an English-speaking country, then writing will be very helpful.
All subjects are taught by American teachers. There will be a maximum of 6 students in a classroom.
Students are charged by the week. Housing is available upon request.
In ancient times the Greek word ETHOS meant CUSTOMS or HABITS! We chose the name E-T-H-O-S for our corporation because we are a service company that specializes in helping people change their habits.
Our name is an acronym and stands for Ethics To Help Others Succeed! Everything we do is designed to help our clients become better people and make a positive contribution in the world around them. (We all know the world could use more of that, right?) Our help could take the form of anything from teaching people the basics of VALUES and ETHICS, to eliminating specific life habits that they don’t like, to speaking better English, or even as far as learning a new language! We will do whatever we can to help! We believe that the Good Lord intended for people everywhere to be good, honest, decent, productive, and helpful folks and that the main reason why the world is such a scary place is because too many people have gotten away from HIS plan. We want to change this by helping people LIKE YOU!
