International Language Programs (ILP) is a non-profit, volunteer service organization based in Provo, UT. ILP volunteers maintain high moral standards. Particular religious affiliation is not a requirement for participation but a commitment to live by the ILP Code of Conduct is. Since 1992 ILP has successfully taught English to children around the world. ILP provides nearly 400 volunteer and paid teachers each year for private and public schools worldwide. Approximately 7,500 children participate in our program in 16 schools in Russia, Taiwan, China, Ukraine, Mexico, and the U.S. With ILP children learn English in an environment of love and excitement. In approximately 500 hours of instruction (one school year) in an ILP beginning program, children become functionally fluent in English. After graduating from the beginning program, children continue to develop their comprehension and speaking skills. The second year is designed to help the students maintain their fluency while developing essential basic reading and writing skills. Following completion of that level, the Elementary program takes children to a higher level of fluency, achieving peer-level competency. Children study from textbooks and use curriculum currently used in American schools. The students learn to speak about subjects such as science, math, social studies, and literature. Having completed the follow-up program, children are able to learn with equal competency in classes taught in either English or their native language.
