The reality is, gaining English fluency isn’t something that can happen overnight. Truly mastering a new language takes time and dedication. Choosing an English course is a real investment, and we know that new students want results they can count on. That’s why we developed the EF English Live Guarantee.
For some, the promise of “guaranteed results” makes something sound too good to be true. However, we’re confident that with the help of our online teachers and interactive lessons, learning English is achievable for everyone. But is there really a guaranteed way to improve your English level online? If you learn English online with us, the answer is YES!
How it works
When you join EF English Live, we’ll ask you a couple questions about your current English level, lifestyle and motivation for learning. From there, we’ll create a personalised Study Plan to help you progress through your course.
If you complete all of the lessons in your Study Plan sequence and at least one live conversation class each week, we guarantee you’ll progress a minimum of one full EF English Live level in 6 months or less. This is our promise, whatever your current English level.
What’s an EF English Live level?
Our General English course is divided into 16 learning levels aligned with the 6 Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) levels A1 through C2. To complete a full EF English Live level, you must successfully complete each online lesson and pass the End of Level test.
Added bonus: for each End of Level test passed, you’ll be able to download a certified course diploma proving your English proficiency. These results can also be added to your LinkedIn profile in just a few clicks.
Will it really take 6 months?
This depends on your learning style and the amount of study time you can commit to each week. Many students will complete a level much faster, but everyone learns at a slightly different speed. Our online course is available 24/7, meaning you can study as often as you’d like and progress at your own pace.
Your Study Plan sequence will help to guide you, but to give you an idea of what to expect, each level within our online school is divided into 6 units made up of short lessons. We estimate that each unit should take around 3 to 4 study hours, meaning a full level should take between 18 and 24 study hours.
Remember, to be eligible for the EF English Live Guarantee, you must also participate in at least one live online class each week. We believe that these live classes—led by our expert teachers—are essential to your progress. You can either take a 45-minute Group Conversation Class or a 40-minute Private Class to meet this requirement.
What happens if you don’t progress by a level?
In the unlikely event that you complete all of the lessons in your Study Plan sequence and at least one live class each week, but don’t progress a full EF English Live Level within 6 months, we’ll provide you will free unlimited access to our online course lessons for an additional 6 months to help you reach your goal.
With a trusted online learning method and the EF English Live Guarantee, you can be confident that there really is a guaranteed way to improve your English level online.
