Together, our team of international and highly trained linguists devised a framework with assessment levels that is directly related to CEFR for all learner abilities. Whether you are a beginner to a language (Level 1) or proficient (Level 10) in a language we have learning solutions covered for you!

Our Grading System
All grades are subject to learners performance and how well they correspond to the learning objectives of their course. Learners will be tested on their individual skills and team skills depending on the course dynamics.
Courses will be assessed by our instructors in accordance to course frameworks. Learners will have work submitted and graded that will be put into contention for the final grade at the end of the course.
Below you will see our grading scale, starting with the lowest grade (Fail) to the highest grade (Distinction). A 55 percent grade upwards merits a Pass.
