Why ICC Hawaii
EFFECTIVE TEACHING METHODS
At ICC Hawaii, we recognize the importance of true learning. Unlike other typical language schools, we emphasize classroom interaction, rather than lecture-based learning, to ensure that our students truly improve their English skills.
- Interactive and highly effective
- Ensures improvement in English skills
- Helps students develop confidence
ENGLISH ONLY POLICY
In addition to great teaching methods in the classroom, we are also the pioneers of the “English Only” Policy, which requires our students to only speak English at school. This English immersion learning environment helps our students build confidence and improve their English skills at a faster rate.
MOST DIVERSE CLASSES ON THE ISLAND!
ICC Hawaii has one of the most intercultural student bodies in Hawaii. We have students from over 20 different countries (with no more than 35% of our students from any one country). With multiple countries represented at ICC Hawaii, students are able to connect with other students from all over the world and gain knowledge well beyond the classroom.
SMALL CLASS SIZES
To make sure you receive the attention you need to reach your English language goals, ICC Hawaii provides small classes (average 8 students per class).
BEST CAMBRIDGE PROGRAM IN HAWAII!
Since 1998, ICC Hawaii has been preparing students for the internationally recognized Cambridge English Examinations, and we are also recognized as a Cambridge English Language Assessment Authorised Centre. This means that students and other examinees can now take the Cambridge ESOL exams at ICC Hawaii as well.
With over 15 years of experience, we work hard to make ours the best Cambridge prep program on the island!
Here are just a few reasons why ICC Hawaii’s Cambridge program is the best:
Our Director of Cambridge & instructor Douglas Groesser is one of the top Cambridge instructors on the island. In addition to over 20 years of instructional experience on three continents, Douglas also has 8 years of experience with University of Cambridge ESOL products.
Douglas holds a BA and MA in English with an emphasis in teaching writing, and a single subject teaching credential in English.
