ESL INTERNATIONAL, LLC (ESLI) begins by administering language assessments to evaluate the initial language skills of those involved in our business language training program. The results, alongside key work-related terminologies, and individual business needs assists in structuring the language instruction. Assessment outcomes drive the instructional design.
We have teamed with Arturo Hernandez, Ph.D., Cognitive Science and Psychology from the University of Houston, and author of "The Bilingual Brain" to aid in brain research as it deals with language acquisition. ESLI has developed key instructional categories and tools to assist in monitoring client progress. The following categories provide the instructional objectives:
Objective 1: Grammar
