Interview process

Why is there an interview?

The interview is held primarily for the benefit of the student. We use the information gathered by the interview to identify the strengths and weaknesses of each student. We then identify which level would best fit the students needs and goals, and tailor classwork taught in those classes. Tailoring allows students to fill in gaps in their knowledge of English. Tailoring also allows the teachers to build on student’s strengths.

Should I study for the interview?


How is it determined when I can move up in levels?

Each student will have anecdotal records kept by their teacher. When the student masters a new concept, the achievement record will be dated. As soon as the student masters all qualifications under their present level they will be allowed to move up to the next level.
