The General English program consists of six levels in line with the internationally-recognised Common European Framework: Starter, Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate and Advanced, each of which takes three five-week terms to complete.

The program uses two different series of Cambridge University Press books: Interchange 3rd Edition, and English ResultIn addition to these materials, the instructors tailor the courses to the students' needs with supplementary material. There is a heavy focus on English-language computer skills and students are required to complete regular assignments, presentations and group projects.
