At Forum Intensive English Center, learning is more than staring at a book or listening to a teacher's voice—it's an engaging process that requires participation. The school's instructors boost students' fluency in the English language through interactive exercises developed by European linguist Susanna McPhilomy. Active group conversations and role-playing exercises are a few of the techniques used during intensive English courses and test-preparation programs that prepare students for the TOEFL, IELTS, and other exams. Students can also opt for classes designed to help them communicate in a professional setting.
