The word “class” can be confusing. It refers to two things. First, it means your grade, and everyone in your grade. When American students say, “My 11th grade class has 160 people,” it means there are 160 students at their school in grade 11. Second, “class” refers to subjects of study. You will hear American students talk about “English class” or “biology class.” All EF High School Year students are required to take English and American History. You will also choose classes that are of particular interest to you. These classes are known as “electives” and may include: Sculpture, Computer programming, Photography, Web design, Art history, Journalism and Foreign language.
