All English language schools are not created equal, and when you’re wanting to learn to speak the most important language in the world it’s vital to choose a facility that offers you the best learning experience; certified, dedicated teachers; a cultural experience; and more. If you’re considering an English language school in Hawaii, ask a few questions before you enroll.
Is the school accredited? We are accredited by CEA (Commission on English Language Accreditation), and work in partnership with many organizations, including NAFSA, TESL, University of Cambridge, and many others, to help our students realize their fullest potential.
Does the school offer smaller class size for better learning? Small class size means more personal attention and focus on each student; an opportunity to acquire language skills at a quicker rate than in a large or overcrowded classroom.
Are teachers and instructors certified? While you won’t always find this information listed on a school’s website, it’s highly recommended you contact the school to ensure teachers are qualified. Our academic faculty is comprised of certified, experienced teachers who are dedicated to students’ success and overcoming language obstacles for future success in the workplace, communications, and speaking a universal language wherever you may travel to.
Is the facility a recognized language testing center? There are few schools who are also known as accredited language testing centers. ICC Hawaii is recognized as an official Cambridge testing center.
What about cultural and social activities to help expand your language skills? Learning shouldn’t be boring or limited to the classroom, and students who have traveled from other countries should have the opportunity to explore, make new friends, and have fun! From hiking and learning the hula to surfing, visiting other islands, and even enjoying a catamaran cruise at sunset, there’s plenty to do for our students to make the experience one they’ll never forget!
Be sure to ask yourself these questions when deciding what school you want to attend to learn English! At ICC, you’ll find our English language school in Hawaii perfect for your needs, regardless of age!
