Why online study is perfect for advanced English learners
Your needs are very different from people who are just starting to learn
and traditional language courses might not work for you because:
- Going to class every week isn’t the right solution for you
- Online you can schedule your study the way you want
- Group dynamics in classes can be frustrating
- Online you can interact with other students of your own level
- The content & material may be too easy, boring and irrelevant
- Our online program is designed for advanced learners
- You’ve done quite a few courses by now and quite simply, you’re bored of them
- Now you can try something new and exciting
In a nutshell...
The Proficiency Project is
The Online Advanced English Learning Programme for upper intermediate & advanced English learners who want to move their level towards proficiency.
Essentially, a brand new way to upgrade your English >
- even if you are busy
- even if you think you have plateaued
- even if you have never tried online courses
Study when you want, where you want, how often you want!
Still thinking about it?
Let's have a look at how The Proficiency Project can help you
Achieve results at your own pace: spend from 2 to 8 hours per month & study when you want, where you want, as much as you want. It’s up to you!
What makes The Proficiency Project special?
My students inspired me to create this English experience!
I’ve been teaching English since 2001 and I’m also a language student myself (my quest to learn Italian has been epic!) so I know what I’m talking about when it comes to learning a language!
With all of my experiences combined, I have a 360° vision of what my students need. I see an abundance of English material out there, but as we more towards upper intermediate and advanced learners, the choice of quality and interesting online courses and programmes becomes less and less.
When I left Florence and my school there, my students asked me what was next?! They didn’t want to stop English, but they didn’t want to move north with me either! Therefore, long story short, this is why English Digital Academy was born.

- I will guide you through each module and you can ask questions at any time.
- You can spend between 2 to 8 hours per month – it’s up to you!
If you aren’t sure that our programme is right for you, please get in touch for a consultation.
Email Kerin > firstname.lastname@example.org
Our consultations are free of charge and there is no obligation to buy.
Each month you get access to a new module.
The modules will follow a three step process: input, practice and activation
- At the end of each module, there will be an activation project
- This is your opportunity to put everything you learn into practice, in a context that is real and relevant for you
- You can submit the task and get feedback and corrections from me
As a member you will also get access to lots of other cool stuff!
Me too! Here’s the cool stuff! For as long as you are a subscriber, you get
- Access to our community where you can ask and answer questions, discuss topics from the lessons, make friends & have conversations and share projects
- Access to quarterly progress test and certificates
- Access to vocab, pronunciation and grammar boosts and challenges
- An exclusive 50% discount on our Skills Specific and Business English online courses.
At the end of each module, there will be a final activation task or project. This is your opportunity to put everything you learn into practice, in a context that is real, meaningful and relevant for you.
You can submit the task and get feedback and corrections from me.
This was a decision that I made after a lot of consideration and here are the two main reasons why I decided that the content will be released monthly:
- It avoids overwhelm. If all the content is available without any roadmap or structure, I know my students will find it overwhelming and make less progress. It will be difficult to know where to start and I fear motivation will fall. Less is more!
- This way, you have clear, focussed tasks to complete each month. You have a guide and incentive to work towards goals and you will be more likely to stay on track and produce results.
- Throughout the module you’ll find interactive quizzes to check your comprehension and practise what you learn.
- Each module comes with a progress file so that you can keep track of what you do and mark areas that you want to review again at a later date.
- You can also do the quarterly progress tests if you wish. For each progress test you pass you will earn a certificate.
It sure is! Nobody is going to force you to do the progress tests. If you don’t care about it, don’t do it!
- Of course! You can ask me questions relating to the monthly module any time via the forum or by email.
- If you have other questions about English in general you can ask and get advice, support and feedback from within our community, or you can submit your questions for me by email.
- If I can answer it quickly I will, otherwise, I’ll prepare a lesson on the topic if there is enough interest in it from the other members. And by the way, you are free to suggest lesson topics at any time too!
- Please note individual lessons are not included in the membership.
Individual lessons are not included in our membership but we can definitely recommend excellent teachers if that’s what you are looking for.
Getting your English Proficient doesn’t have to be a huge investment or a huge time commitment
- How much time you spend on each module will depend entirely on you. I estimate anywhere between 2-8* hours per month, depending on your pace and starting level and depending on what your month looks like!
- It will also depend how deep into each topic you want to go and how much self-study you want to do.
*add 30mins- 5 hours if you buy an online course from our shop
Look at the two statements below.
If you agree with statement A, then no, I don’t think you should invest in your English and I don’t think The Proficiency Project is right for you.
If you agree with statement B, then yes! Investing in yourself is one of the best things you can do, and The Proficiency Project will suit your needs.
A – I have a decent level of English and I’m not bothered about improving it. It’s fine as it is and I’d rather invest in something else.
B – I have a decent level of English but I want it to be better! I don’t want to lose my fluency and I’d like to build my skills and vocabulary.
We know you will LOVE our programme. However, if for whatever reason you’re not 100% satisfied in any way, we have a 30 day money back guarantee (no questions asked). We want you to succeed, and know that if you become a member and really put your heart into it… you will see results and love learning!
Obviously we’d love you to stick around and we’d be sorry to see you go! But don’t worry – if you do decide to cancel you’ll be able to do so with just 2 clicks of a mouse.
We offer a 30 day money back guarantee on our membership should you be unhappy in any way in your first month of membership.
You may also cancel your monthly subscription at any time via your account page, but due to the nature of the Service no refunds will be made for any membership fees already paid, excluding the 30 day money back guarantee as stated above.
