The aim of the curriculum

LSLC curriculum is basically aimed at enhancing students' acquired English skills to a higher level through intensive one-on-one classes and group classes.

The structure of the curriculum

The curriculum of LSLC has three major parts or levels, namely, beginner (beginner, high beginner), intermediate (low intermediate, high intermediate), and advanced. The students' textbooks and teachers are assigned in congruence to these levels.

The students' English level is determined right after taking TOEIC reading and listening tests, and one-on-one English interview, a day after their arrival. Then, every month, the students must take level tests: TOEIC listening, reading, speaking, and writing. The results of these tests could gauge how well students have improved.
