I. Santisuk English Center's CORE CURRICULUM (5 different levels):

PRE-LEVEL 1
Introduction to speaking English including conversations, pronunciation, grammar, reading, comprehension, and writing. Taught by a Thai speaker with excellent English. Students can ask Pre-1 teachers for explanations in Thai. This class is designed to prepare students for Level 1, which is taught by a native speaker.

LEVEL 1
Taught by a native English speaker, usually an American. It provides an introduction to many aspects of English with emphasis on pronunciation and using correct grammar in sentences. There is a major emphasis on speaking daily in class. Other aspects of this level include reading and comprehension, crosswords, sayings, and essay writing.

LEVEL 2
Continues on from level 1 to provide more advanced grammar usage and sentence creation. A new aspect of Level 2 is the introduction of conversations that are learned in class to help students improve their speaking skills.

LEVEL 3
Continues on from Level 2 with more grammar and sentence creation, but in this level more spontaneous sentence creations in stressed. This is done through "on-the-spot" sentence drills and daily discussing in class "what I did today." There is also dictation and regular conversation practice.

LEVEL 4
Level 4 introduces students to giving speeches that the student must present in front of the class and teacher. This level is designed to improve students' confidence in using their English in front of others. This level also helps to encourage students with their pronunciation by selecting a student to test the class's listening skills each day.
