Five Main Levels of ESL Instruction

Bell Language School provides basic level to advanced level English instruction through an integrated-skills approach, which covers grammar, listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills taught in a communicative and dynamic setting. In addition, our school hopes to support students in assimilating into American culture by incorporating cultural and historical aspects of American life into the ESL courses.

Bell School ESL Programs List

Each level is 12 weeks long. The 12 weeks are taught in two, 6-week sessions: A and B, with a one to two weeks break in between each 6-week session. Students may begin the program with class A (6-weeks) or class B (6-weeks) and in order to progress to the next level, both parts, A and B, must be completed with a passing final level grade.

To qualify for an F-1 Visa and obtain an I-20 form, students must enroll in one of our full-time programs. The program is 20 hours per week, or 120 hour per 6-week session (240 hours for the 12-week level). This is IDEAL for an F-1 Visa student.

A main level class consists of Grammar and Conversation. Grammar is taught 3 days a week and Conversation 2 days.

These main level courses are designed for adult students of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds to further enhance students’ knowledge of the English language and help students build confidence in their ability to communicate more accurately and fluently about everyday situations. The students will explore grammar and conversation through integrated-skills controlled and communicative activities to use increasingly complex grammar structures in meaningful contexts throughout the four levels.

*While all levels are offered every 6-week session, a part of a level may not be offered if there are no students. Additionally, there may be a need to open another class, thereby, having two levels offered at the same time if there is an increase in enrollment.
