IMEC is a 100% English-speaking environment whose teachers are all highly qualified, experienced and dedicated professionals whose goal is to help you meet your English learning goals.
At IMEC students study an Intensive English language Program (IEP) learning all language skills together.
The IEP programme consists of eight levels, from Beginner to Upper Intermediate, which are taught over a period of eight months. Upon registering at IMEC, new students are asked to take a Placement Test before being assigned to an appropriate level. A beginner may have to study for the full eight months to complete the programme, whereas someone with a little experience at English could finish in just a few months.
IMEC teachers come from all over the world. We have an equal number of native and non-native teaching professionals.
You can always approach your teacher, the centre supervisor, or one of our sales staff. Any one of these people would be happy to assist you if possible.
The school term starts on the first Monday of every month. Please see our calendar for more details.
IMEC Classes are run 5 hours per day. Classes run 8:00am to 1:00pm with no lunch break.
Students can take an IELTS test anytime; however, we recommend to attempt the IELTS test AFTER completing IEP 7 or 8. Students may also join our IELTS preparation class after IEP 5 or above.
