Each person learns differently. Some people will pass a module very quickly. Other people will need more time. Oxford University Press has designed the course to be as user-friendly as possible. An initial test, consisting of 60 questions, will measure your existing level of English and automatically place you in the most appropriate level of the course to encourage you to succeed (neither too easy nor too hard). There are over 50 hours of learning available in each Module and you have six months to complete a Module. Oxford University Press believes that most people should be able to pass a Module within 3 months. However, there is no guarantee – as in all examinations, whether you pass will be based on your own abilities and commitment.
The course is a great way to learn English. It can prepare you for formal exams (such as IELTS, TOEFL) which are often required by universities and governments. However, specific requirements vary widely and we would advise you to check with the relevant university or government directly to find out what is required.
When you successfully complete a module, you can generate a certificate to prove your achievement.

No. The course in designed in modules and levels. In most cases, 2 modules = 1 level of the CEFR. You should aim to improve your English one level at a time.
Also you start the course at the level that most relevant to you. So if you currently have an intermediate level of English, the test at the start of the course will assess whether you are a B1, B1+ or B2 student and place you in the module that will help you learn best.
In theory, you could be a beginner (A1) and take the course all the way through to an advanced level (C1). However, most students want to improve their English by only 1 or 2 levels of the CEFR.
The course covers all levels of the CEFR from A1 to C1.
There are modules available for levels A1, A2, B1, B1+,B2, C1.
The test at the start of the course helps to place you at the best level for you (not too easy and not too hard).
So whether you are a Beginner (A1, A2), Intermediate (B1, B1+, B2) or advanced (C1) student the course can help you achieve better English.
The courses are created and run by Oxford University Press, a department of the University of Oxford.
There are different models from self paced learning of the content through to virtual group and one to one classes. The learning can also be embedded into any SCORM compliant LMS.
