Initial assessment 

On your first day at school you will take a paper-based grammar and vocabulary test and a speaking and listening assessment.

Your teachers work closely with you in the first week to find out whether or not you have been placed at the right level.

We will take feedback from you to know how you feel in your class and if it is the right class for you.  Based on this we are able to put you in the class which is the correct level for you.
