    deliver in 12 week terms

    The TELP program,delivered in 12 week terms, is specifically designed to provide language training for academic study.

    Can I conclude from the above sentence that the TELP program makes sure students learn the English language for four months.

    PS: in 12 week terms, should I add a hyphen between them like " in 12-week terms"?

    Thanks!

    No, the text states that the program is delivered in terms which are 12 weeks long. The text doesn't say how many such terms there are. There is no indication that a student will learn anything.

    No, it means it is delivered in a period of 12 weeks. However, if they have designated a time period, it is easy to deduce that they expect the material to be learnt in that time period.



    Also, 12 weeks isn't 4 months. It's only 3 (4 weeks per month)
