Course Duration and Number of Sessions

-          Each term consists of twenty 90-minute sessions in addition to a parent-teacher meeting.

-          Parent-teacher meetings are held in the 11th sessions of each term and are attended by teacher and parents, i.e. in the absence of students.

-          Classes are held two sessions per week: Saturdays and Wednesdays, Sundays and Tuesdays, or Mondays and Thursdays.

 

Evaluation and Grading

-          Due to the young age of the students in this department, and in light of the research done by ILI experts, and also in spite of the employment of a grade-assigning system in parallel with progressive assessment, a pass/fail system is not used in the ILI Children’s Department. However, it is possible for a particular learner to repeat the same level provided that the teacher prescribes it and the learner’s parents find it necessary.

-          Students' achievement is reported to their parents on two occasions: first, on the eleventh session of each term (subsequent to the review of the lessons in the first half of the course), and second, after the end of the term (subsequent to the review of the lessons in the second half of the course). Reporting is done through report sheets informing students' parents of the students’ language ability. These sheets contain information about students’ achievement levels in listening, speaking, reading and writing skills, as well as disciplinary matters including classroom behavior, homework, number of absences and late-comings.

-          It should be noted that students’ class activity and final exam grade comprise 60 percent and 40 percent of the final grade, respectively. Students who get a final grade of lower than 70 are recommended to repeat that level.

 

Transfer to the Young Adults' Department

-          Students who have completed the 4th grade of primary school are transferred to the ILI Young Adults’ Department.

-          Students eligible are required to fill out the transfer form and submit the form to the ILI branch.

-          Students are given a written and an oral placement test.
