On the first morning you will have an orientation programme.  This consists of a grammar test, a writing test, and an interview.  After testing you will be given an orientation briefing about the school, homestay information, transport, and other useful information.  After orientation we put you into a suitable class. The teacher will check you during the morning class, to make sure that the level is OK for you. If you need to go up or down a level, your teacher will tell you.
