We are very pleased to welcome you to the official website of CIAL INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL. We are very honored by the confidence you have shown in us by choosing our institution for your training.

Training is like a round robin race. You have to get off to a good start and know how to pace yourself so you don't fall off in the middle of the race. How to support the rhythm of the race when you don't know everything about the course? - Information is often difficult to access, which can put off the less hardy. We have therefore created this site to ensure the fluidity of our information on our various courses. Without being exhaustive, it will allow you to get more information on the essential questions you may have about our different levels of training and our different services.

Did you know that? A language is a window to a culture. Learning a language also allows you to broaden your vision of the world. You will not only learn a language but also the keys to understand other cultures, for better cultural, professional and personal exchanges.  Speaking and understanding a language (in this case, English) is part of the criteria of the new generations. Today, English is the language of international communication, and to be internationally successful, it is essential to speak English.

Since 2006, CIAL INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL has been providing world-class instruction in languages and then become a top-level training centre in COTE D’IVOIRE. As we always try our best helping our students master their chosen languages with care, compassion, and individual attention, CIAL INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL becomes a very strong regional attraction site. It is therefore with great satisfaction that the Institution responds to the need for language training and capacity building of the general public wherever they may be.

To all of you (students and parents), we make suggestions on how best to support the general public. Clearly, the battle for success is not an individual one, but a collective one.

This site purports to be and remains a crossroads of exchange of ideas, mutual experiences, because we are only human because we can communicate, speak and make ourselves understood, otherwise we will suffocate.

CIAL INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL was founded in 2006 by its Founding Executive Director, NESTOR ASSIDENOU inside the National Library of Cote d’Ivoire.

Approved by FDFP (Vocational Training Development Fund) and certified in 2012 by ETS (Educational Testing System, the American founding body of the TOEFL iBT based in Princeton, New Jersey, United States which develops, administers and rates the centers all over the world), CIAL INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL is a language training institution and official center for international exams and preparations.

Follow us

Students will first take a mandatory English test lasting 2 hours. Only the result will help us assess the level of each student.

The learning process will be conducted through lectures, discussions or debates, presentations and round tables on current topics.

Of course, a class session lasts two (02) hours, which means a minimum of twenty-five (25) learning sessions per level. You will be taught technical English as well. Therefore, each student will have 80 course hours, which means three 2-hour sessions per week.

The methodology comprises reading with phonetics, vocabulary, comprehension, grammar, conjugation, commenting, writing and speaking. This methodology will be adapted to the level of the student. The training is deepened and certified at the end of the course.

Concerning general training

CIAL INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL courses last two hours (2h) per session. As a student or trainee, you must be available to attend classes on time, according to your schedule.

We have two main methods for each class session. Method 1 comprises three phases (Reading and Comprehension / Commentary / Listening). Method 2 comprises only one phase: the actual classes.

Method 1

First phase: Reading

At this level, students are taught the best way to read, the best way to pronounce words by applying stresses for emphasis and intensity. During the reading class, CIAL INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL provides you with a vocabulary on your table for each class.

Phase Two: Commenting on the text

It is not enough to just read. You have to understand. But it's not enough to understand: you have to convey what you have read and understood. This is commenting.

Third phase: Listening

In this phase, the Listener silently follows what he has just read, in order to learn how the word is pronounced.

Method 2: Lessons

Lessons are prepared and put in the box in front of you. After reading, commenting and listening, you take the lesson from the box and follow it carefully. At the end of the course, you leave with it. In CIAL INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL you do not copy as you would in a grammar school or in a university lecture hall.
