Q4. Which level of General English will I be in?
We allocate students to the level most appropriate to their proficiency. Before starting, students take a level check test. If you are only able to arrive at school on the first day of your enrolment then you will need to arrive at 8:00am to complete the level check test. Students are encouraged not to write in their textbook until the end of the first week because sometimes students need to move up or down a level after their first week.
