For more information about our levels, please see our Student Learning Outcomes.

Homework

Students have required homework for all classes at WESLI. Most homework is writing, reading or listening. Many of the assignments are creatively designed to encourage students to use English in daily life. You will conduct surveys, participate in local events, listen to radio programs, attend university lectures, or design a magazine advertisement.

Grades

At the end of each session, students receive grades and comments from teachers on their performance. Grades are determined by the students’ ability to meet the class objectives, demonstrated through class participation and homework. Grades are on a scale of ‘A-F’. In most classes, a student must receive at least a ‘D’ in order to pass to the next level. A ‘C’ is required to enter 500 and 600 Academic Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. A ‘BC’ is required to enter 700 Academic Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking.

Transcript and Certificate of Completion

Upon completion, students may receive a transcript and certificate.
