STEP FOUR: English Language Interview (International Students Only)

In order to ensure that non-native English speakers are placed in an EXPLO program that is appropriate for their English level, we conduct short student interviews via Skype to assess students’ speaking abilities. You will be contacted if your child requires an interview.

  • Exploration programs require intermediate-to advanced-level English, except EXPLO Mini, which requires advanced-level English
  • EXPLO Focus programs require advanced-level English, except English Immersion, which requires beginning-level English
