How do our students dramatically improve in essay writing?

Our latest survey indicates that 95% of our students find success with the TOEFL or IELTS within 3 months. For essay-writing focused tests, students will find their progress even faster.

Our students learn about 150 new words every day through the Cognitive-communicative Approach which in part involves the intense study of Greek and Latin roots, coupled with a basic understanding of Old English, Old French and Old Norse roots. Thanks to his years of teaching and research Frank Miao has been able to create two vocabulary lists that are indispensible to any student of the English language: the Active 1700 and the Passive 1800.
