Course Studies in English in North America 2017/2018. General ESL Program OHLA uses a skills-based curriculum, focused specifically on developing necessary linguistic skills in five major areas: Reading, writing, listening, speaking and grammar. We, at OHLA, know that the best way to develop these skills is to do it in a “natural” way, the same way we all learned our native languages. We believe that languages are not meant to be memorized, but rather to be used and practiced on a daily basis, in order to maintain continuity and master it in a lesser amount of time. To learn and master the English language, it is necessary not to view it as a step-by-step approach, but rather as a continuous and progressive process, where international students are continuously challenged accordingly as they go through their levels of language study. Languages are continuously learned and improved upon, the same way in which we are always learning and improving our native languages. The main reason for this is that languages are always evolving; just like everything else we see or experience in life. Click here to see our Program Proficiency Scale A proficiency scale is a set of descriptions of the language skills that you can expect to attain during your time at OHLA. Each level in the scale describes a stage in your development of competence. Entry Points Each level lasts 12 weeks and it is sub-divided in six 2-week-units called “blocks”.
