PROGRESSIVE ENGLISH GENERAL DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVE
Main Street Schoolhouse Language Institute has its own ESL curriculum, Progressive English or “inglés progresivo.” It is a series of 12 books based on different topics understood to be the basis for language learners. Each booklet begins with the “survival level” ESL vocabulary and accompanying grammar and conversation; then it takes the student into the wider array of vocabulary on the same topic. Some English programs hold the students into the “survival level” English for an extended time. Other ESL students may have been placed in an advanced level class but they exhibit “holes” (or gaps) in their earlier language learning. This program is to prevent that from happening. This curriculum was developed for
- The multiple-level English class, meaning a class of students at various levels in the language acquisition
- A student who is not a pure beginner but who needs to strengthen his level one skills before progressing on to the advanced levels
- A student who is a beginner who can begin with the “survival level” ESL at the beginning of the text, and progress on to the deeper knowledge of the topic.
