Levels we are offering:
It’s for beginners or breakthroughs. The first step is for anyone who hopes to learn the English language. It is designed for people who have never studied or understood the language very fundamentally.
The student learns how basic words are used and questions are asked at this level. New words, numbers, letters, and verbals will also be learned by the student.
Can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very fundamental words to meet specific needs.
You can introduce yourself and others, and answer questions about your personal details, like where you live, people you know, and things you have.
Can interact simply provided that the other person talks slowly and clearly and is willing to help.
This level can be enrolled by anyone without any requirement
It is for Elementary or Lower Intermediate. This level will allow for higher than the basic level.
The learner will continue to learn new vocabulary and will acquire grammar skills that will help to communicate in various everyday situations. The learner also learns to communicate using English expressions in the present and future tenses in simple sentences.
Can understand sentences and frequently used expressions concerning areas of most immediate relevance (e.g., very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment).
Can communicate in simple and routine tasks that require a simple and direct exchange of information on routine and familiar matters.
Can describe aspects of their background, immediate environment, and issues in areas of immediate need, in simple terms.
The learner must pass a Secure English Language Test (SELT) in Speaking and Listening at least CEFR level A1.
It is for the intermediate or the individual who can learn. This level will improve their ability to describe things and situations in conditional and past times, develop their writing skills and improve their consistency.
A learner will gain more English confidence and fluency, and feel like you can communicate more easily verbally.
A B1 level of English would be sufficient for interactions with English speakers on familiar subjects. At the workplace, people at the B1 level can read simple reports on familiar subjects and write simple e-mails on subjects in their field. A level B1 is not, however, adequate to function fully in English at the workplace.
According to the official CEFR guidelines, someone at the B1 level in English:
The learner must pass a Secure English Language Test (SELT) in Speaking and Listening at least CEFR level A2.
It’s for Upper Intermediate Independent Users. Upper-Intermediate is designed for students who already have a high level of English and teaches the learner to clearly understand complex texts.
Leaner will be able to correctly express themselves in all past tense forms and perfect their use of adverbs and prepositions. They will also continue to enhance their vocabulary and improvise their ability to produce fluid speech.
A B2 level of English would enable you to work in English at the workplace, and indeed many non-native English speakers in international workplaces have that level of English. However, a person who works in English at a B2 level will lack nuance especially outside of their own field. He may also miss some of the subtleties in the conversation and implied meanings.
Someone at level B2 is in English according to official CEFR guidelines:
The learner must pass a Secure English Language Test (SELT) in Speaking and Listening at least CEFR level B1.
