Academic Rules

Homework

Review and practice will improve your English skills. Students will be required to complete homework after classes to prepare for the next day. In our residence halls, we have a time each day scheduled for students to complete homework. Students who consistently do not complete their homework must stay after classes for one hour.    

Attendance

Learning a language is hard work but we are eager to help you. Attendance is required in every class. If you come to SLI, you must be prepared to attend all of the classes each day and work hard to learn English.    

Outstanding students

At the end of the program, SLI teachers will nominate Outstanding SLI Students. These individuals will be recognized at the Closing Assembly. Outstanding SLI students:

  • Attend 100% of the lessons
  • Arrive to class on time
  • Always have homework completed on time
  • Engage with the material in class
  • Ask for extra work
  • Contribute appropriately to class discussion
  • Cooperate well with other students
  • Put forth outstanding effort to improve their English
