Coffee Table

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS MY LEVEL OF ENGLISH?
SHOULD I TAKE A PROFICIENCY EXAM?

The word 'student' gives the connotation that the person may or may not be interested in the subject that is being taught. He or she may or may not be actively listening or actively striving to reach their goals.
The word 'learner' gives the connotation that the person is much more involved in the learning process. A learner looks for opportunities to learn, is engaged with the materials and asks a lot of questions.
If you are a language learner, you know that it takes a lot of effort to learn a second or third one. There are many methods out there, but one consistent factor is that the learner must be engaged in the the process.

WHAT IS MY LEVEL OF ENGLISH?
SHOULD I TAKE A PROFICIENCY EXAM?

If you need to know your level for C.V., we suggest that you take an official proficiency exam. If you are learning for fun, or to speak with friends or family, we do not recommend them. While proficiency exam results are good indicators of what you should work on, you can find cheaper options. Learners often spend too much time thinking about the parts of the exams (the time limits, the speaking section, being correct etc.) and too little time working on actual communication and being understood.

WHEN WILL I BE FLUENT?

Defining fluency is difficult, which means it will be difficult to achieve. However, if you start asking questions like, 'What phrases do I need to know to check into a hotel?' or 'How can I sound more natural when I present my project in English?', becoming fluent will be easier to do because you will know exactly what is required to reach your goals.
