An Introduction to
Franklin Virtual High School’s English Language Enhancement Program works to improve a student’s academic English skills. Through engaging and interactive lessons, students participate in reading and math courses that prepare them for rigorous American education and English proficiency exams.
ELE courses also expose students to the daily life of an American, providing the perspective of a student attending an American school. Along with many cultural references, ELE students experience teaching and learning techniques that are commonly used in American classrooms.
Improve English Proficiency Test Scores
– The ELE Program is designed to help students improve their scores on English language proficiency exams such as the IELTS, ELTiS. and TOEFL Jr. Students who complete all three modules of the program could see their scores increase by 30 points or more!
Language School Alternative – Language Schools can be very expensive. The ELE Program provides students with an affordable alternative to develop English skills in the comfort of their own homes (or anywhere they choose).
Exchange Program Preparation – The ELE Program can help students develop the English skills necessary to succeed in an American high school or college exchange program.
Completion Certificate – Students who complete the three-module program will receive an official certificate of completion.
Improve your English reading and listening comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, and fluency!
The ELE program is not your typical ESL program. This program is designed to build upon students’ current English language abilities. Adaptive learning technologies can be used to adjust the English Language Enhancement courses as a student completes each lesson. The goal is to deliver a solution that focuses on each student individually. ELE offers students the chance to highlight and focus on areas that need improvement rather than forcing them to relearn subject matter that they know already.
Practice essential math concepts and skills while building English vocabulary and comprehension at the same time!
ELE Math is a review of the basic mathematics principles typically taught prior to the start of high school. Each ELE Math course will support the lessons from accompanying ELE Reading courses. This program also delivers great value and preparation for study abroad in the U.S. by exposing students to new vocabulary that is specific to American math courses.
Become immersed in culture!
ELE courses expose students to the daily life of an American, providing the perspective of a student attending an American school. Along with many cultural references, students experience learning techniques that are commonly used in American class-rooms.
As international students apply for academic programs throughout North America, the reality of needing to take English assessment tests becomes quite clear. Regardless of the particular test, they are all based on a student’s ability to read, write, and speak in English. The ELE program prepares students to do just that. These courses ultimately help students improve test scores by enhancing academic English abilities. Through improving English comprehension and learning how to use the language in a natural manner, the ELE program will help students become well-rounded English speakers. Whether taking the TOEFL Jr., ELTiS, IELTS, or one of the many other English tests, FLC students armed with the academic language enhancements from ELE should easily achieve better scores on their English assessments.
English Language Enhancement courses provide students with a set of skills that are both necessary for their academic success and useful throughout their American education experience. This program will assist with the demands of high school today and offer preparation for a competitive university environment tomorrow. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for success in an American high school, but it will also help them to prepare for university entrance exams like the SAT and ACT. Upon completion of the program, ELE students WILL have a competitive advantage over their peers. If university enrollment is a future goal, this program should be a priority.

The FLC English Language Enhancement (ELE) program provides mathematics instruction while also helping students increase their vocabulary and improve their reading and listening comprehension. The ELE Math courses include lessons involving everyday American activities like shopping and cooking, which expose students to concepts like measurement, currency, and culture in the United States.
Math is not typically a student’s favorite subject. However, it was chosen to be included in the ELE program for one simple reason: the concepts taught in American math classes are similar to the math concepts taught around the world. This presents a great opportunity for ELE Math to review simple math lessons and enhance English skills such as reading, vocabulary, and listening comprehension at the same time. The concepts taught in ELE Math courses should already be familiar to students. In ELE Math classes, the education delivered is intended to improve academic English.
