The syllabus for this course is based on a number of different factors and these vary from level to level. In general the syllabus at UIC progresses from beginner through to advanced in a structured and comprehensive way.

While the details for the timetable change every week, the teachers at UIC will always provide a well-planned and well-balanced class. Each class should contain a mixture of reading, writing, listening and speaking practice and grammaar structures and new vocabulary will be introduced and practised throughout the week. We consider reviewing and revising language to be a crucial part of learning and we have tests every 4 weeks to monitor  progress. We also have tutorials to find out what students want to study and how best to progress.
