FOA Students are Paired up with an American Family
Learn English at your Digital Classroom
Students will learn and experience American culture with scheduled online meetings via Zoom.
ESL Learning English online is always challenging, but our online classroom setting allows international students to meet others and is designed to be interactive and FUN!
Our talented ESL instructors focus on each students’ needs with introduction to Conversational English and vocabulary helping students speak with host families and local students.
Instructors encourage students to speak with locals in order to make the BEST out of the virtual experience.
Interaction is key for each student's ability to improve their English and speaking skills. They can practice how to interact with native English speakers.
Classrooms will remain small from 10 students and up to 15 student maximum per virtual classroom.
ESL courses are one and half hours, three times a week.
Students meet the families who have hosted international students in the past.
FOA Host Families have experience with speaking and interacting with international students. Our families are SO excited to meet new students who join our Virtual program.
One or two students will be placed with a host family, and will be scheduled to meet and interact with their assigned host family. The Host family will meet students twice a week for 30 minutes.
What will it be like for an international student in the U.S?
Our instructors will introduce and educate students in local American Culture. Students can experience fun and entertaining videos showing what they can expect when they come to visit the local area.
Guest speakers will be joining classrooms to speak and encourage leadership skills for education, potential profession, and how to prepare them to live, work, and study in America.
Again, this is where preparation meets inspiration!
Students will meet other international students in our virtual exchange program, in addition to meeting and speaking to local elementary, middle school, or high school students!
Local kids will be scheduled to meet once or twice a week for 30-minute interactive conversation. Instructors will monitor each classroom and break out rooms to help with interactions and keep the conversation flowing respectably.
