Online Level Test: Our Levels

Our course levels are based on internationally recognized systems, so you have a universally accepted reference for your studies. We recommend at least 100-200 hours of study to adequately cover each CEFR / ACTFL level. This represents a mix of guided study and self-study in the form of homework and other revision / practice. The number of hours of face-to-face time necessary to progress varies significantly depending on a number of important factors such as; the amount of time you are able to dedicate to self-study, whether you are learning the language in the country it is spoken, whether you have the opportunity to practise the langugae you are learning on a daily basis.

The guidline given is reflected in our course structure, which is designed to give you a solid foundation in the language whilst providing you with enough time to cover each level sufficiently. The structure is of course flexible and adaptable, depending on your prior language skills, individual preferences and goals.
