Programs

Live, virtual classrooms with native-speaking instructors. 100% of the students in this course experienced increased test scores on standardized high school English tests in China throughout the school year.  

Our virtual classroom operates around the world and is designed for students starting in middle school through to university. 

Some students study 4 hours per week, some 6, and some 20 hours of face-to-face instruction each week. The program is customized to allow for parallel studies (such as high school programs). It is a live, virtual classroom with native-speaking instructors.

Our English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program teaches the fundamentals of English as well as North American culture and academic traditions. Core courses include:

  • Academic Listening & Speaking
  • Academic Reading
  • Academic Writing
  • Academic Grammar

Academic Support Hours

CultureWorks students have Academic Support built into their schedule. At the start of each term, students are assigned an academic advisor. During their weekly Academic Support hour, students will engage in a variety of activities, including small-group and partnered academic skill building activities. They will also have the opportunity to work with their academic advisor one-on-one to help them achieve academic success.

Note: This chart provides potential CultureWorks students with a provisional CultureWorks English level placement. Level placement will be made official following the first week of class. Official standardized test scores only. Considered valid within 6 months of the test date. Students without an official test score will be required to take a CultureWorks’ intake test prior to the start of the term to determine level placement. 
* The Oxford Online Test is not an official standardized test. It may be followed by further CultureWorks testing to determine level.
**Students with a CEFR score of B1 or B2 on the placement test will be put into Level 3 or Level 5, respectively. During the first week of school, the teachers will check their work to see if they have the skills to move up to Level 4 or Level 6, respectively.
