Getting down to details (FAQ)
Just the basics: a strong internet connection, a computer to connect to the internet and the free video conferencing tool Zoom.
English class happens when you want it to! That’s the beauty of taking Lingoda’s English language course online. Our 24/7 group classes cover all time slots as we have English teachers based across all time zones. Create a schedule that works for you and feel free to change it up as you need to.
In our group English lessons, 3-5 participants come together and they’re usually from countries all around the world. This creates an effective and authentic learning environment and encourages learning through communication with many different speakers. When we put together the groups, we make sure that the individual students have a comparable level of language skills and similar interests.
An English course that is held on a one-to-one (private) basis does not allow for language exchange among several students but includes more direct contact between student and teacher. Also, in private lessons the teacher can focus on the questions the student has as the entire class will be tailored overall to the learning goals and interests of the student. As a qualified native speaker, the teacher enables the student to cope with everyday situations in English. Our online lessons “face to face” provide the student with the optimal conditions to train and strengthen his or her communication skills. A private lesson lasts 60 minutes. Here the student learns individually according to his or her pace, timetable and interests. Private lessons are also suitable as preparation for international language tests such as TOEFL or TOEIC, which may be of interest to employees who are planning to work abroad for a longer period of time.
Both group and private online English classes are very effective with Lingoda, but it depends on your personal preferences what you’d like to do.
Even if you’re a beginner, you’ll learn quickly with our immersive methods. Each of our online English lessons combines speaking practice and situational training so that what you learn in the classroom can immediately be applied outside of it. We make sure that every sentence, activity and topic builds toward meaningful communication. Your needs are our focus whenever we create new, level-appropriate materials.
Great question! CEFR stands for Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. It is an internationally recognised framework that describes language ability from A1-C2. A1 being basic and moving up to C2 native-level proficiency. The CEFR focuses on how a student can communicate rather than just how much knowledge the student has, making it a practical framework that aligns with the real world.
All of our English teachers are native speakers, no exceptions. They are also highly-qualified. We are strict with hiring only teachers that have years of experience and can provide the highest quality teaching. Our teachers are also trained with the Lingoda method and standard, so you can learn English online smoothly.
Our students love learning with a variety of teachers because it means they are exposed to the range of accents present in the real world. This is just one of the many ways that the Lingoda classroom gets you to real fluency.
All materials are unique and specially created by Lingoda experts to align with CEFR. You can download the class materials for free and use them at any time. After class, you’ll also find a quiz and some exercises that you can use to help refresh and practice your new skills.
We offer a free placement test that we encourage you to take before you begin learning. The length of the test depends on your level. The higher your level, the more complicated the questions will become. You can take the test here.
Yes! You receive a certificate for each level you finish with Lingoda. Our certificates are issued in accordance with the CEFR and accepted by many institutions worldwide. To get a certificate, you’ll have to complete 90% of your classes in a module for a CEFR language (this does not include Business English).
