Once at school, students will take a one-hour placement test that assesses their grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, and speaking. Students are tested so they can be placed in the best class for their English level.

They will then attend an induction session delivered by an Embassy Summer staff member, which lasts approximately 30 minutes.
