Road to English Proficiency is an innovative brand new digital programme exclusively for upper intermediate and advanced English learners.

Our signature advanced English online course has been designed to give you an alternative way to study: an immersive experience to help you get your English towards a proficient level.

12 themed modules of original content, teacher feedback & mentoring and all the flexibility you need. 

100% digital and 100% human! Even though it’s 100% digital,  you’ll feel like you have your own personal teacher.

  • Develop your comprehension, fluency, vocabulary and learn native–level English
  • Improve your understanding of native speakers: learn strategies and practise, practise, practise
  • Consistently grow your skills and vocabulary using real, authentic resources
  • Strengthen all your language skills: writing, reading, listening & speaking
  • Understand real speech patterns and learn pronunciation techniques in fluent speech
  • Discuss topics beyond your comfort zone 
  • Make progress: use the interactive quizzes and progress checks

Road to English Proficiency is made up of 12 modules. You can either do one module per month or access the fast track option, depending on your plan.

Some modules are available for single purchase.

The programme allows you great flexibility.  You can follow it wherever and whenever you want, dedicating the
time you have, from a minimum of 4 hours a month: having said that, the more you practise the more progress you will make! 

We endeavoured to create a study program rich in stimulating content, with some features similar to social networks, to allow people to improve their language whilst having fun. 

The lessons are based on current issues, they are
interactive and full of funny anecdotes and also advice on how to improve your study techniques and how to get by in difficult situations.

Each month you practise everything you learn and you have the option of doing a progress test to track your progress. 

Throughout the module, you will have contact with Kerin and she will give you feedbackcorrections and also challenge you to improve your English.
