How do I get started?admin2020-04-10T09:07:15+00:00
The Course was developed originally by Oxford University Press – the World’s leading provider of English Language Teaching materials. The focus has been quality – to create a Course that successfully helps people learn English – rather than price. It’s now been updated and managed by another of our partners Ardor, who are connected in to some of the world’s biggest corporations so you get the assurance of original quality and ongoing relevance.
How long will it take to complete a level of the CEFR?admin2018-09-20T10:51:55+00:00
Everyone learns differently. However, when Oxford University Press developed the course they did so with the expectation that most people should pass a module within 3 months. In most cases, to pass a Level requires 2 modules which would be the equivalent of 6 months, although we give you longer.
How many people have taken your courses?admin2018-09-20T10:51:55+00:00
We have different courses but in most of them you have foundational English created by Oxford University Press. Over 200,000 people have taken these courses with an 87% completion rate and a 92% customer satisfaction score. Our other specialist and elective modules and one to one tuition have equally high success and satisfaction ratios.
What happens once I pay?admin2018-09-20T10:51:55+00:00
Once you make a secure payment, you will receive an Order Confirmation from us and our international payment partners (Worldpay/Alipay/Paypal/Stripe). We will then contact you with a welcome email and your enrolment details, which include when you’ll start, how long study will be, log on and other critical Getting Started information. There will be a set of FAQ’s and you can always email/chat with someone from the support team.
Is there support in my language?admin2018-09-20T10:51:55+00:00
There is instructional text in many languages at the beginner level, including Spanish, Portugese, French, Mandarin and Korean. Once you reach a certain level of learning, the module is all in English as its expected that you will be comfortable with the language by this stage.
How do I pass a level of the CEFR?admin2018-09-20T10:51:55+00:00
Each person learns differently. Some people will pass a module very quickly. Other people will need more time. Oxford University Press 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. We think 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.
Is the completion certificate accepted by universities and governments for further study and/or employment?admin2018-09-20T10:51:54+00:00
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. Our certificates are proof of completion and that you passed the test for each module. You will likely have to take individual tests every time you apply for entry to somewhere.
What equipment will I need?admin2018-09-20T10:51:54+00:00
No. An initial test at the very start of the course (consisting of 60 questions) will measure your existing level of English and automatically place you in the most appropriate level (neither too easy nor too hard) of the course to enable you to succeed
Can I buy Modules for my school or other organisation?admin2018-09-20T10:51:54+00:00
The Course is designed for individual study. However, you may wish to set up social media groups to share your experiences and ask each other questions. If you have enrolled as part of a particularly school, institution, association or organisation you may be able to join a group Skype or virtual class.
I’m interested in buying a number of Modules for myself, my family or my organisation. Is a discount available?admin2018-09-20T10:51:54+00:00
We have special pricing for volume purchases and we run occasional promotions for current students and if you sign up to our emails you may be lucky with some offers we have with partners but we don’t have permanent discounts. Sign up to our newsletter to find out more.
Who owns the course?admin2018-09-20T10:51:54+00:00
The course was developed by Oxford University Press, a department of the University of Oxford. It’s now updated and managed by Ardor Learning, a world class company that deals with hundreds of corporations on every continent.
