Transportation We at Learnet Academy, feel that lack of access to transportation should not be a
barrier to education. A variety of transportation options are available to students
and faculty. Learnet Academy is located just one short block north of Wilshire
Blvd., and one block west of Vermont Blvd. The intersection of Wilshire and
Vermont is one of the main transportation hubs of Los Angeles. Therefore Learnet
Academy whilst away from the noise of major roads is able to give students easy
access to bus service to downtown Los Angeles as well as to the beach cities and
other suburban areas. Access to the new Metro Rail Red Line provides service to
downtown Los Angeles and direct connections to south-central Los Angeles and
Long Beach on the Blue Line. Eventually the Red Line will extend to the San
Fernando Valley and East Los Angeles. For students with cars, ample security
parking is available directly behind the school. For RTD riders, a student discount
is available by presenting their student I. D. and proof of enrollment.

Copy Right and In compliance with US Copyright Laws and with section 3-1-531 (d) of the ACICS
Software Accreditation Criteria Policies, Procedures, and Standards, Learnet Academy does
not reproduce any copyrighted materials for instructional use, which includes the
reproducing of book material and/or software material. As a member of Microsoft’s
IT Academy Program, Learnet Academy has a volume license, which authorizes
our school to use Microsoft software on our classroom computers. Additionally, we

Transfer Policy / Instruction


Previous Education Transfer of credit from other institutions is encouraged and available in all programs
Evaluation except EFL. Applicants may request an informal transfer of credit evaluation prior to
admission. Official notification of credits that have been accepted for transfer to a
program normally occurs at the time an offer of admission is made or during the
student’s first module of enrollment.
Evaluation of credits for transfer to a program will require the following
documentation: a copy of the transcript that reflects the course being evaluated.

Minimum Requirements for the Evaluation of Transfer of Credit( For domestic


students only).
Credits evaluated for transfer from other educational institutions must have been:
• Earned and recorded on an official transcript at a school that was accredited
by an agency recognized by either the U.S. Department of education or the
Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
• Earned within 5 years prior to or after matriculation.
• Earned in courses posting a “B” (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or higher.
• Earned in a course where the content is equivalent to the corresponding
Learnet Academy course or where the content is considered to enhance the
student’s education; and
• Approved prior to registering for the course
• The school also considers credits for transfer from educational
accomplishments attained in extra-institutional settings that are recognized
by the American Council on Education’s (ACE) Center for Adult Learning
and Educational Credentials.

Maximum Number of Credits Permitted for Transfe r( For domestic students


only).
The maximum number of credits accepted for transfer to a Learnet Academy
program is 25% of the required number of credits to complete the particular program.

Reconsideration of a Transfer of Credit Evaluation ( For domestic students


only).
Students may request a review of a transfer of credit evaluation by submitting a
written request to the Office of Admission within 30 days of receiving an evaluation.
Recognizing that transfer of credit evaluations are based on a number of important
factors, written requests for their review should explain, in detail, the issues or
circumstances that led the student to believe the evaluation was flawed or that an
error was made during the evaluation process. The outcome of this review is final.

Evaluation student's previous experience. The student must take the final exam for the course
not more than 30 days prior to the start of class. To receive course credit, the
student must make a score of at least 70%. No letter grade will be given for any
transfer or test out course.

scheduled to attend a class session. Cancellation shall occur when students give
written notice of cancellation at the address of the school shown on the top of the
front page of the enrollment agreement. Students can do this by mail, hand
delivery, or telegram. The written notice of cancellation, if sent by mail, is effective
when deposited in the mail properly addressed with postage prepaid. The written
notice of cancellation need not take any particular form, and, however expressed, it
is effective if it shows that students no longer wish to be bound by students’
enrollment agreement. Students will be given two ‘notice of cancellation’ forms on
the first day of class, but if students choose to cancel, students can use any written
notice that students wish. If the school has given students any equipment, including
books or other materials, students shall return it to the school within 30 days
following the date of students’ notice of cancellation. If students fail to return this
equipment, including books, or other materials, in good condition within the 30 day

not timely returned in good condition, within 30 days after student’s notice of
cancellation is received.

refund, less a processing and a registration fee of $75.00, within 30 days following
their withdrawal. They are obligated to pay only for educational services rendered
and for unreturned books or equipment.

Refund Policy The refund shall be the amount the students paid for instruction multiplied by a
fraction, the numerator of which is the number of clock hours of instruction which
they have not received but for which they have paid, and the denominator of which
is the total number of clock hours of instruction for which they have paid. If they
obtain books or equipment, as specified in the enrollment agreement as a separate
charge, and return them in good condition within 30 days following the date of their
withdrawal, the school shall refund the charge for the books or equipment paid by
them. If they fail to return books or equipment in good condition within the 30-day
period, the school may offset against the refund the documented cost for books or
equipment exceeding the prorated refund amount. For a list of these costs, see the
list on the front of the enrollment agreement and any attachments. If the amount
that they have paid is more than the amount that is owed for the time they
attended. Then a refund will be made within 30 days of withdrawal. If the
amount that they owed is more than the amount that they have already paid,
they will have to make arrangements to pay it.

Hypothetical Refund Assume a student enrolls in a 800-hour EFL program , starting in module EFL 2A
Example and pays $5,700.00 for tuition, $75.00 for processing and registration fee along
with $160.00 (fair market value) for equipment as specified in the enrollment
agreement, then withdraws after completing 400 hours of elapsed time without
returning the equipment he/she obtained. The pro rata refund to the student would
be $2,850.00 based on the calculation stated below. If the student returns the
equipment in good condition within 30 days following his/her withdrawal, the
school shall refund the charge for the equipment paid by the student.

Sample Refund Based on the preceding example, the refund calculation would be made in the
Calculation following way:

$ 5,775.00 $ 5,700 tuition + $ 75 registration


Less $ 10.00 Registration fee (amount school may retain)
Less $ 65.00 Processing fee (amount school may retain)
Times 400 Clock hours of instruction not attempted
Divided By 800 Hours of instruction for which student has paid
Equals $ 2,850.00 Initial refund amount
Plus $ 0.00 Documented cost of returned equipment*
Equals $ 2,850.00 Actual refund amount

*If the student returns the equipment in good condition, the actual refund to the
student would be $3,010.00 ($2,850.00 + $160.00). For the purpose of
determining the amount they owe for the time they attended, they shall be deemed
to have withdrawn from the course when any of the following occurs:

1. They notify the school of their withdrawal or the actual date of withdrawal.
2. The school terminates their enrollment agreement.
3. They fail to attend classes for a two-week period. In this case, the date of
withdrawal shall be deemed to be the last date of recorded attendance.

Academic Policy

Academic Progress Duration of Study


Policy
Students must complete their programs with a minimum GPA of 2.0, and do so
within 1.5 times the scheduled program length.

Completion

Upon successful completion of the program, a Certificate of Completion or


Diploma will be issued to the student.

Grading System

The school maintains an academic progress report for each student. Grades are
issued upon the completion of each module or level.

The grading system is as follows:

Rating % Score Letter Grade Grade Point Average


Excellent 100-90 A 4 point
Good 89-80 B 3 point
Average 79-70 C 2 point
Below Average 69-60 D 1 point
Fail 59-00 F 0 point
Incomplete I I 0 point
Withdrawal W W 0 point

Passing grades are "A", "B", "C", and "D". All grades appear on the official
transcripts and are used in calculating the grade point average. Student progress
and grade reports become part of the student's permanent record and all grades
received are posted on the Student Record.

A grade of Incomplete ("I") will be given when a student has not completed all
course work or does not take the required exams. "I" notations must be made up
within two weeks from the completion of the course or "I" will become "F" and the
course will have be repeated for credit. Satisfactory completion of the necessary
work in the allotted time will convert the "I" to the grade earned. A grade of
Withdrawal ("W") is to be used only for students who withdraw from a class during
the first three weeks of a grading term. After that, "W" will be become an "F" for
the class.

Satisfactory Satisfactory progress is evaluated at 25%, 50%, 75% and at 100% point of the
Attendance and program.
Satisfactory
Academic Progress Satisfactory Attendance Progress
Policy The student is required to make quantitative progress toward program
completion. To be making satisfactory Attendance progress, a student must
attend at least 78% of the scheduled class hours on a cumulative basis during
each evaluation period.

Students who withdraw from the program will receive a grade of 0% in each class
interrupted by the withdrawal. All interrupted classes must be repeated upon
readmission to the institution. Students with more than 10 consecutive days of

© Learnet Academy All Rights Reserved Last Revision Date on March 9, 2010
15

unexpected absences will be automatically withdrawn.

Satisfactory Academic Progress


The student’s academic average is reviewed to determine qualitative progress.
The minimum required is 70% at the conclusion of each evaluation period.
Incomplete grades are not given, and students must repeat any classes in which
they earn less than a 70% average. Course work repeated may adversely affect a
student's academic progress in terms of the maximum time frame.

Whether a student changes programs or seeks additional programs, their


cumulative GPA will reflect all units taken, however the transfer credits do not
impact a student’s cumulative GPA at Learnet Academy.

Probation

Students will be notified in writing should they be placed on probation for either
failing to meet the attendance requirements or failing to meet the SAP standards.
Students will also receive attendance or academic counseling from the
Executive/Education Director, as appropriate, when they are placed on either
probation. The institution will notify a probation student by certified mail if he or
she is being administratively withdrawn for unsatisfactory academic progress or
attendance improvement.

If a student fails to meet the cumulative 78% attendance or 70% grade average for
any evaluation period (which is a quarter of each program’s curriculum), he or she
will be placed on probation for the next evaluation period as follows:

1. Attendance Probation: students must show the overall attendance rate met
the requirement of 78% attendance policy; failure to achieve a 78%
attendance, at the end of the probationary evaluation period will result in the
administrative withdrawal of the student.

2. Academic Probation: students must retake the class and pass the exam;
failure to achieve a 70% grade average, at the end of the probationary
evaluation period will result in the administrative withdrawal of the student.

Appeal Process

The student may submit a written appeal of his/her dismissal within five calendar
days of their receipt of the dismissal notice. The appeal should be addressed to
the Executive/Education Director. The appeal must be accompanied by
documentation of the mitigating circumstances that have prevented the student
from attaining satisfactory academic progress. Only extraordinary circumstances
will be considered, such as death or severe illness in the immediate family.

The Executive/Education Director will assess all appeals, and determine whether
the student may be permitted to continue in school on a probationary status,
despite not meeting the satisfactory progress requirements. The student will be
sent the written decision within ten days of the Institute’s receipt of the appeal.
The decision of the Executive/Education Director is final. Students reinstated upon
appeal are on a probationary status for the next evaluation period, during which
time they must meet the terms and conditions set out in the Executive/Education
Director’s letter granting the appeal.

At the end of the evaluation period, and at the end of every evaluation period
thereafter, the student’s academic status will be reviewed. The student may

16

continue on probation as long as he or she meets the terms of the probation, until
such time as satisfactory academic progress status is regained. The student
reinstated after dismissal and appeal is not eligible for financial aid until he or she
regains satisfactory progress status by meeting the minimum SAP standards.

Maximum Time Frame

All program requirements must be completed within a maximum time frame of 1.5
times the normal program length, as measured in calendar time except
reenrollment for new updated program with the Executive/Education Director’s
approval.

A program of 36 units in length must be completed within 54 attempted units of


study. An explanation of the ratio of satisfactory credits earned: attempted for
each program is detailed in the table below.

Maximum
Program Units

Tardiness Learnet Academy encourages students to be "on time" for all activities,
appointments and classes. Students who arrive more than twenty minutes late for
class or who miss 20 minutes of class time during any given class hour are
recorded as incomplete and considered absent for that class hour.

Make Up Classes The school does not require a student to make-up missed classes. Make up
classes are not specifically scheduled and are never guaranteed. However,
missed classes can be made up on a drop-in or space available basis within two
weeks from the date the original class was missed. In no event will make-up
classes be provided for students after the scheduled end of the module or level.

Leave of Absence Students are entitled to take only one leave of absence during any academic year.
The duration of the leave of absence may not exceed sixty days. Requests for
leave must be submitted to the Executive/Education Director and must include an
anticipated return date and be signed by the student. Failure to return to school as
scheduled without prior written notification to and approval from the
Executive/Education Director will result in immediate dismissal. Any refund due will
be made within thirty calendar days from the end of an approved leave of
absence.

The Executive/Education Director may grant leaves of absence and/or waive


interim satisfactory standards for circumstances of poor health, family crisis, or
other significant occurrences outside the control of the student. It must be
demonstrated by the student that the circumstances had or will have an adverse
impact on the student's satisfactory progress in the academic program. No waivers
will be provided for graduation requirements. Time for an approved leave of
absence will not be included in the calculation of a student's maximum program
length.

Leave of absence (LOA) may be granted under special circumstances. Students


may receive two leave of absence during the course of their training.

There are two categories of LOA:


1. General LOA for emergency or personal purposes, up to 60 days,
2. Medical LOA for medical situations.

Only Executive/Education Director is authorized to grant a Leave of Absence.

All medical Leaves of Absence whether requested in advance or based on an


emergency situation must be documented by a doctor’s statement.

The Executive/Education Director completes the request for Leave of Absence


and the Student Status Change form and ensures their proper disbursement.

the student will only be charged at the standard rate for any hours over the
regularly scheduled hours, as indicated in the Enrollment Agreement.
7. The maximum number of times a student may restart at the school is two.
The school understands that unforeseen circumstances can prohibit the
student from completing studies but feels that the student should be able
to successfully complete the schooling within three attempts. If a student

Uncompleted Students will be given an opportunity, at the discretion of the Executive Director
Subjects and and subject to the availability of space, to repeat, remediate, or make up lost work.
Remediation This work shall be given full standing and credit with respect to the student's SAP.

Graduation Students must complete all required prerequisite courses and completion of all
Requirements courses while maintaining an average grade of 70% (G.P.A of 2.0) or better. The

attendance rate of 78%.

Certificates of Students who complete their curriculum objectives within the maximum time frame
Completion are eligible to graduate. A Certificate of Completion will only be issued for a
completed program.

Diplomas Upon successful completion of all twelve levels of the EFL program the students
are awarded a Diploma.

Student Conduct Students are expected to dress and act properly while attending classes. At the
Requirements discretion of the school administration, a student may be dismissed from school for
a serious incident or repeated incidents of an intoxicated or drugged state of
behavior, possession of drugs or alcohol upon school premises, possession of
weapons or disrespectful behavior to other students, an administrator or faculty
member or any other stated or determined infractions of conduct.

Substance Abuse Learnet Academy recognizes that individuals sometimes use substances such as
alcohol and drugs to an extent that impairs their abilities. This policy is
implemented because Learnet Academy believes that any students' impairment
due to the use of substances is likely to place that student, other students,
employees, and other personnel, at risk of injury.

Our policy on substance abuse remains consistent whether alcohol, marijuana,


illegal prescription, and/or controlled substances are at issue. For the purposes of
this policy, "substance" refers to any of the above. "Impairment" or "being
impaired" refers to a state in which normal physical or mental faculties in use at
school have been detrimentally affected by a substance. A "substance abuser" is
anyone who uses drugs for non-medical purposes, and this use detrimentally
affects academic performance or interferes with normal social adjustment at
school.

Any student attending school while impaired or who becomes impaired while at
school will be found in violation of school policy and will be subject to severe
disciplinary action. Such action can include suspension, dismissal, or other
penalty appropriate to the circumstances. Likewise, the use, possession, transfer,
or sale of any substance on school premises or in any Learnet Academy parking
space, storage area, or job site, is prohibited and subject to severe disciplinary
action. Students using prescription drugs have a duty to report this to their
instructors, and school officials in case an adverse reaction to the medication
occurs while at school, and in case the student is falsely accused of using an
illegal substance. When a student is involved in the use, possession, transfer, or
sale of a substance in violation of this policy, Learnet Academy may notify the
appropriate authorities. Such notice will be given only after the incident is
investigated and reviewed by the Executive Director.

Substance abuse is both a school and a medical problem. Learnet Academy is


aware that substance abuse is a complex public health issue that has both
physical and emotional consequences for students, their families, and other social
relationships. Any psychological or physical problem effecting students' academic

© Learnet Academy All Rights Reserved Last Revision Date on March 9, 2010
20

performance is the concern of Learnet Academy.

Any instructor suspecting a substance abuse case should discuss the matter with
the Executive Director immediately. Because each case is different, the handling
and referral of the case must be coordinated between the instructor and Executive
Director. Learnet Academy maintains a referral service for students with
substance problems. Counseling and referrals are provided on a confidential
basis. Voluntary, successful participation in a recovery or rehabilitation program
may be a mitigating factor in disciplinary action depending on the particulars of
each case. While Learnet Academy does not require students to get help, he or
she may ask the school for it. In some cases, disciplinary action may be
suspended, or the student may be placed on probation, pending the successful
completion of a recovery program. Students who enter a rehabilitation program
due to performance or behavior problems resulting from substance abuse are
subject to dismissal for failing to successfully complete the program.

Learnet Academy is concerned with its students' privacy, especially when matters
of a medical or personal nature are concerned. As long as such information is not
required for police or security purposes, Learnet Academy shall maintain student
information in confidence, but subject to release to authorized school personnel on
a "need to know" basis. An exception to this rule exists when the student signs a
release for the transfer of such information to designated persons or agencies.

Academic Freedom For Learnet Academy, Inc., academic freedom is of paramount importance. Within
the guidelines established by the Board of Directors, faculty and students are able
to explore the many avenues of inquiry necessary to seek answers to questions in
their field of study. It is the policy of the Academy that instructors and students are
entitled to full freedom in exploring the many facets of the program they are
involved with, subject to the adequate performance of their other academic duties.

Instructors and students are entitled to freedom in the classroom in discussing


their subject, but they should be careful not to introduce into their discussions
controversial matter which has no relation to their subject.

Academy instructors are citizens, members of a learned profession, and officers of


an educational institution. When they speak or write as citizens, they should be
free from institutional censorship or discipline, but their special position in the
community imposes special obligations. As scholars and educational officers, they
should remember that the public may judge their profession and their institution by
their utterances. Hence, they should at all times be accurate, should exercise
appropriate restraint, should show respect for the opinions of others, and should
make every effort to indicate that they are not speaking for the Academy.

Academic freedom faces its greatest threat in connection with attempts to produce
social change, in expressions of dissent, in settings of sharp controversy. It
should be made clear, however, that controversy as such must not be stilled. It
can have beneficial as well as adverse effects, and it can produce these effects
both on society and on educational institutions.

The democratic process itself thrives on the resolution of conflicting viewpoints in


the interest of the general welfare. Controversy characterizes every healthy, free
society. Its absence makes for totalitarian attitudes and political controls.

Postsecondary education also flourishes in settings where conflicting points of


view can be expressed. Intellectual competency emerges out of such
circumstances. Thus, controversy becomes a major educational tool. It need not
be eliminated or avoided.

Since controversy is educationally useful, a means for keeping inquiry open and
free must remain. The faculty should not avoid controversy by insisting on single
points of view. Hence, some guidelines for handling controversy are appropriate.

Grievances & An efficient, successful operation and satisfied employees go hand in hand.
Suggestions Employee grievances/suggestions are of concern to Learnet Academy, regardless
of whether the problems are large or small.

In order to provide for prompt and efficient evaluation of and response to


grievances/suggestions, Learnet Academy has established a formal
Grievance/Suggestion Procedure for all employees. It will always be Learnet
Academy's policy to give full consideration to every employee’s opinion. There will
be no discrimination against anyone because of his or her decision to participate in
presenting grievances or for making suggestions.

Under this policy, a grievance is defined as any event, condition, rule, or practice
which the employee believes violates his or her civil rights, treats him or her
unfairly, or causes him or her any degree of unpleasantness or unhappiness on
the job. This covers a wide range of circumstances - everything from the
workplace, the environment, and other working conditions to policies or practices
which interfere with or hinder his or her performance. A grievance may also deal

with an attitude, a statement, or an opinion held by a supervisor or a fellow


employee.

Talking things over usually helps. When you have a grievance or other problem,
the person you report to is the person to see first. If this does not settle the matter,
you are entitled to go to his or her immediate supervisor to see what can be done.

The Grievance/Suggestion Procedure is as follows:

1. See Your Supervisor First


If there is anything bothering you, or if you have a suggestion, we would
like to hear about it. If you feel that any working condition, policy, practice,
or action by Learnet Academy or by any member of management is
unjust, you should tell your supervisor about it and discuss the matter
confidentially. Establish with your supervisor an appropriate time and
place to discuss your concern. If for some reason your supervisor fails to
offer you the opportunity to discuss the matter, or if the discussion does
not lead to a satisfactory conclusion, the proceed to the next step.

2. Put It In Writing
Present your complaint or proposed solution to a problem or situation.
Explain the present situation, the desired condition, and your proposed
solution or suggestion for change. Submit this information to your
supervisor.

If, after your discussion with your supervisor, the situation remains
unsettled, the matter should be referred to the director. You may need to
elaborate your complaint or proposed solution presenting additional
information. If you wish, you may describe the situation or problem in
greater detail, name any witnesses if applicable, and be sure to mention
any times, dates, and places of importance. Also, include a summary of
your communications with your supervisor on the subject. Put this
information into an envelope, seal it and either mail or deliver it to the
Director. Of course, your grievance/suggestion may not require all this
information, but could be a brief statement of a minor complaint about a
working condition or a simple cost-saving idea. Whatever it is, we want to
know about it.

3. Grievance/Suggestion Conference
If the previous steps have not solved the grievance within 48 hours of the
incident, the aggrieved party must present to the Executive Director, in
writing, all facts of the grievance. The Executive Director will review the
grievance/suggestion and call you in for a scheduled the conference. This
may, at his or her discretion, be with or without the presence of your
supervisor. At this conference, you should feel free to openly discuss your
complaint and substantiate your reasons for feeling the way you do; the
director will consider your input and render a decision. In most cases, the
matter will usually be resolved at this stage.

Within 24 hours, upon receipt of written information, the Executive Director will
schedule a Grievance Conference. The time of the conference will be
communicated in writing to all parties. All parties will consist of the Executive
Director, the Education Director, and two staff of faculty members not involved with
the incident question.

All persons or their representatives involved with the incident must be present at

© Learnet Academy All Rights Reserved Last Revision Date on March 9, 2010
23

the time of the conference. All parties involved will be given the opportunity to
discuss the grievance. The Grievance Conference will excuse all parties involved
in the grievance and immediately review and conclude the case. The decision of
Conference will be communicated to those involved in the incident within 48 hours.
The Grievance Conference decision will be final.

The sole purpose of this Grievance/Suggestion Procedure is to give each


employee and Learnet Academy a chance to clear up any problem, complaint,
friction, or grievance and to evaluate employee suggestions. In order for this policy
to work, each employee and each member of management must want it to work
and be willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.

Student Complaint Most problems or complaints that students may have with the school or its
Procedure administrators can be resolved through a personal meeting with the student’s
instructor. If, however, this action does not bring the situation to a close to the
satisfaction of students, they may submit a written complaint to:

Learnet Academy
Holmes Center
th nd
3251 West 6 Street 2 Floor

Job Placement

Job Placement Placement Director is responsible for maintaining all job referral activities and for
Assistance locating jobs within the local business community. The school will attempt to set
up interviews for as many graduates as possible with local businesses and
industries. It is the Placement Director’s job to develop and maintain a job network
in the area. Assist in job search and placement; provide readiness discussions
and training in accordance with school policies and contract requirements; search
for and develop employment opportunities through personal and media contact
with employers; seek out and develop potential business/industry training
contracts that could be serviced by the school.

Additionally students can benefit from assistance in the following areas:

1. Preparing resumes
2. Developing job interviewing skills
3. Identifying job position openings
4. Following up with employers after interviews
5. Negotiating wages and benefits
6. Maintaining employment once hired
7. Securing opportunities for advancement once hired
8. Developing and utilizing a network of professional contacts who can aid
the job search effort

Guarantee Disclaimer The Student Placement Assistance Department is committed to assisting


graduates find suitable employment. Learnet Academy or its Student Placement
Assistance Department cannot, however, guarantee employment to any student,
recent graduate, or alumni of this school.

Staff Interaction Instructional staff is always aware of the fact that they are to do more than "impart
facts." Every part of their classroom function needs to be pointed toward a future
job. In reality, sitting in that classroom or Hands On is that student's first job.
It is "pre-on-the-job-training."

Placement Process Placement includes two elements: casual placement while the student is attending
school and academic and professional career placement after the student
graduates. The placement process does not start a month prior to graduation, but
with the first contact the student has with the school.

Part of the "tour" of the school for prospective students should include a stop at
the Placement Department. That student should be greeted immediately by
personnel in a friendly manner, indicating that they are looking forward to working
with that student, should the student be lucky enough to be admitted to the school.
It is absolutely CRITICAL that the person greeting prospective students
NEVER appear that the new student is a bother, because this will be the very
first contact that student received with staff.

Part-time Admissions Representatives should be identified and should emphasize


that they are looking forward to working with the student on living expenses and
borrowing less money.

Curricular Description, Objectives and Syllabi

EFL 1A Beginning Introducing elementary English to the students who take the first step to learn
English. This step demonstrates very short conversation like introducing oneself to
others, basic grammar such as how to use be, simple questions and answers, Wh-
questions, yes/no questions, subject pronouns, basic preposition, etc. The
purpose of this course is to let students know that English is a very practical
language so they can use it very usefully if they practice hard.

EFL 1B Beginning To continue study based on former level, but it becomes more complex. This step
treats simple present tense, present continuous, adverbs and questions of
frequency, simple past tense, and countable and uncountable nouns. Students
may feel the course quickly becomes difficult because they learn grammar and
expressions quite different from 1A, and they are just beginners, so the instructor
needs to lead the students not to fear about learning English.

EFL 2A High Instructor teaches to the students more complicated grammar and longer
Beginning expressions. To make long sentences, the students will learn how to use
conjunctions, adjectives like comparative and superlative, and longer vocabulary.
At this level, students learn more words and idioms through practicing
conversation, and learn about basic writing structure, how to compose real essay
in English.

EFL 2B High In this level students will learn about irregular verbs, present perfect, present
Beginning continuous future. This kind of grammar is quite difficult so student should practice
a lot by making sentences in speaking and writing.

EFL 3A Intermediate As of the beginning of intermediate course, this level related with basic course but
students will learn more complex words, expressions and grammar. With the basis
of basic knowledge, they will be able to speak in English using the comparison of
simple past vs. present perfect and future tense.

EFL 3B Intermediate With the mixture of the grammar and expressions that learned former level, this
step introduces infinitives and gerunds. These are so widely used in all positions of
sentence, this level is very important for understand the meaning of infinitives and
gerunds, how to use them with the expressions that we’ve learned before. Also this
level introduces conditional sentences using if clauses.

EFL 4A High Continuous study from intermediate 1, with more complicated expressions.
Intermediate Students will learn about passive, past continuous, and some adverbs variously
used in sentences. The focus on this level is to fortify learning structures in
practical English. This level is middle of all complete courses, so it’s important to
study remembering the basic structure. To do so, students can progress their
ability in English.

EFL 4B High In this level, students will learn about present prefect continuous, relative clauses
Intermediate and useful expressions related with them. At this level students can speak English
natives using 5-6 sentences without stopping, and they can compose more than
three passages. Present perfect continuous is a combination of present perfect +
continuous, so this will be also the continuous study of former level. Relative
clauses are essential to make sentences longer more than conjunction. Students
will learn general usage of relative clauses thoroughly.

EFL 5A and 5B In advance level, we focus on the students’ ability of “how they can speak English
Advanced fluently with native speakers”, “how they can read more difficult subject such as
contemporary issues of current society, and how well they can discuss about it”,

34

“how they can express their opinion with written words”. In this level, students will
learn more about relative clauses, gerund phrases, if clauses, indirect questions,
past continuous, simple past, past perfect, with more advanced idioms.

In this level, students will learn about noun phrases containing relative clauses
passive infinitives and gerunds, passive in the present continuous and present
perfect, prepositions of cause, infinitive clauses and phrases. Students can
develop their communicative competence in English and higher-level
comprehension skill is also will be developing.

EFL 6A and 6B High Continuous study of former level. This level completes all activities of talking,
Advanced listening, writing and reading. The purpose of the study in this level is to
accomplish the highest ability to use English without any difficulty. Students learn
about expressions of suggestions with gerunds, infinitives, base-form verbs, and
negative questions, time clauses, phrases of purpose, describing regrets about the
past with should have + past participle, discussions about current issues with
groups.

As the conclusion of all levels of study, this level treats various reviews of all
activities: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. In this step students will learn
about past sentences for degrees of certainty, the passive to describe with be,
defining and non-defining relative clauses, complex noun phrases with gerunds, all
with the reviews of tenses. Students will be able to deal with more difficult subjects
by express their opinion, writing essays and reading difficult passages.

Graduation To graduate from the EFL program, a student must successfully complete level 6B
Requirements by achieving an average grade of 70% (GPA of 2.0) or more. The student must
also meet the attendance policy and thereby maintain an overall attendance rate of
80%.
