Class Offerings

We use an integrated skills approach widely utilized in contemporary education at the school, college, and university level. It is an approach that combines skills in the classroom for a richer learning experience.  By integrating all language skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary, we ensure that students learn the whole of the language, rather than specific pieces. For our on-site classes, NSC offers Integrated Skills at seven different proficiency levels. For online classes, NSC offers the following four levels:

  • Beginner 
    Students learn fundamental language skills needed in the classroom and in daily life, with emphasis on speaking and listening. 

  • Intermediate
    Students develop language skills beyond survival English, in order to respond appropriately and independently in familiar situations

  • High Intermediate
    Students refine language skills and develop the ability to use English spontaneously and in some unfamiliar situations.

  • Advanced
    Students refine fluency and communication skills and begin to express complex ideas with fluency and accuracy, including developing control of advanced grammatical structures.
