Vacation Study Programs:
You only need a Tourist Visa to study at Hawaii Palms English School. (No student Visa needed.) Our programs are all 16 hours per week. So, if you come to Hawaii on a Tourist Visa, you can still study English "part-time" in one of our English Intensives or our Special Summer Program.
We have ongoing English Intensive lessons with a new term beginning every month. You can take English Intensive Group lessons for 4 weeks, 8 weeks, or 12 weeks, according to your preference.
Our courses cover the four skills of speaking, listening, grammar, and writing, as well as pronunciation and vocabulary building. A special emphasis is placed on speaking and listening. The University of Cambridge course textbooks are recognized as the world's most successful English courses for adult and young adult learners of English at the beginning to intermediate levels.
We teach all four textbooks to four different levels: Beginners, Upper Beginners, Low Intermediate, and Intermediate Levels. Advanced students use different textbooks and an emphasis is placed on grammar, writing, and advanced speaking activities.
Our top quality English teachers are all native English speakers with many years of experience teaching English as a second language to people all over the world. All of our teachers are professional, friendly, and experienced. Some of them also teach at neighboring universities. Teachers bring warmth and energy into our classrooms because our teachers are truly happy.
