Mission:
The Stratford Language Institute’s English as a Second
Language program is dedicated to creating and supporting a
professional, respectful, and motivating learning environment,
through which students simultaneously develop and
strengthen their language abilities across the four domains of
reading, writing, listening, and speaking, as well as their
academic skills, and their intercultural knowledge. Our intensive English program offers 7 levels of courses that are aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference. Our curriculum uses the Oxford University Press Q: Skills series for levels 1 through 4, focusing on critical thinking skills to establish reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. For levels 5 through 7, we use the Inside series which is an intensive writing and reading curriculum in addition to listening and speaking skills. In order to place our students in the appropriate level to begin their journey in English acquisition, we require a placement test to be taken. SLI administers the Oxford Online Placement Test in order to find out newly enrolled students language ability which will then determine their initial placement level. We also offer courses in our General English Program which includes IELTS Test Preparation, TOEFL Test Preparation, Business English I & II, and Academic Reading and Writing. Our General English Program also provides a Pathway Course, which is designed for students that meet all other admission requirements for Stratford University except for language proficiency. Students who complete the Pathway course will automatically matriculate into Stratford University's Bachelors and Masters programs. Our 10-week terms are 18 hours per week, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m to 2:00 p.m. for a total of 180 hours per term.

One of the more difficult aspects of the English language is how a word can sound the same but have a different spelling. OR, can have the same spelling but different meanings, depending on the context! This is why taking English classes is so important! #sli #stratfordlanguageinstitute #english #university

SLI has finished our 5th and last term of 2020. We are still actively taking precautions against COVID-19 and will continue our schedule that we have been under.
