The Essentials of the English Language program (EEL) is a complete language arts program that takes students beyond the worksheet. Mixing strategic memorization of vocabulary, rules, and lists with a series of analytical tasks, EEL teaches students how to thoughtfully analyze sentence construction. The result is strong language construction and usage skills, both written and oral.
The class is led by a trained tutor and meets one day a week for 24 weeks. Surprisingly there is not too much writing during class, but there is a lot of talking! Students compose sentences and learn the rules or writing by talking about them. Parents learn about the English grammar and writing, too, because they attend class with their students. They watch a trained tutor model the lesson so they can continue that lesson at home.
