Upper-Intermediate English is for students about age 13 and above, who have studied English for 6-7 years. Students will improve their vocabulary, listening, speaking, pronunciation, and reading skills, and learn more about US life, holidays, and geography. This level also focuses on understanding and using common English grammar. By the time students finish Step 10 class, they should be reading on a USA grade 5/6 level, and be comfortable speaking and writing simple essays in English.

Lily, my daughter, took this class for two years in vocabulary and critical reading. This online class helped her a lot. Lily was in a German public school for her 5th grade and studied English only as a second language. In sixth grade, she learned almost nothing due to the change in her learning environment and unique teaching habits of her new English teacher. In seventh grade, she was able to slowly catch up to her classmates and finally in eighth grade, I signed her up for Mr. Dreyer’s online classes. I believe Mr. Dreyer’s classes helped her catch up what she missed while in Germany as she is now in English Honors. I think this online class may help other IBSH* kids as well. *IBSH: International Bilingual School in the Hsinchu Science Park, Hsinchu,
