Monol Baguio is one of the ESL schools in the Philippines. Monol’s General ESL course aims to build students’ foundation in English and focuses on the improvement of the four macro skills, namely, Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing, as well as in Grammar and Pronunciation. 

Through the commingling of the Spiraling Framework and Communicative Approach, the course trains students to communicate with “everyday English” at the same time, promotes continuous exposure and repetition of ideas, vocabulary, and expressions for more optimal results. These features make the course ideal for students of different abilities, from beginner to advanced, who seek to gain accuracy and fluency and enhance skills.

  • Two proficiency levels: Foundational and Essential with three (3) sub-levels: Elementary, Intermediate, and Advanced with 8 weeks duration per sub-level

  • Constitutes nine (9) class sessions (1:1 class 5 sessions; group class 4 sessions)

  • Evaluates students using a Percentage Grading System

  • Enforces a Bridge Program to students who fail to reach the passing score on every level

Grading System

Bridge Program

The Bridge Program is designed for a four-week study of students who achieved a Final Grade of 76 and below after eight (8) weeks. Students who failed to reach 80% in the Revalidation Tests also go through the Bridge Program, since their Placement results serve as their Final Grade for their proficiency level. The Bridge Program in the Listening and Reading classes are composed of additional units, while Speaking, Writing, Grammar and Pronunciation Bridge Programs serve as a refresher course.

Revalidation Test

Students who get a Final Grade of 77-79 are required to take a Revalidation Test done every first Monday of a term. This is to determine whether students proceed to the next proficiency level or the Bridge Program. Thus, the results of the Revalidation Test are considered to be the students’ Final Grade for their proficiency level. Those who wish to reassess their proficiency level can also take this test. However, the result of the test bears no effect to the Final Grade of students.

Level Test

Level tests are given to students on the first Monday of the term. Students are evaluated separately in their Listening, Reading/Speaking, and Writing skills. The results of these tests determine the starting level of the students.
