How will Linguaphone courses help me?
Can you think back to a moment when the lack of command over language caused you some embarrassment, sagged your confidence and made you miss opportunities. Today, success in jobs or business depends on the ability to communicate with people, to present ideas and to persuade people to act the way we want them to. The Linguaphone courses help in improving confidence, communication skills, and the ability to lead.

Why should I choose Linguaphone courses?
Linguaphone self-study courses are designed to help you pick up a language using your natural abilities. By using the successful system of listen, understand and speak, you will be able to speak the language of your choice within a short period of time. The course materials are interesting and make learning fun. This is a lifetime investment for you and your family which you can share with them to help enrich their language too.

How do I know which course is right for me?
First of all select the language you want to learn. A list of all the available courses for that language will appear. Look at the level of each course to see if it matches your needs. See the question "What do the different course levels mean?" to understand what you will be able to do at the end of the course.
For English, where there is a wide range of courses, you can reduce your search to your level only. If you see the statement Find the course that matches your needs, select the level of the language you want to learn in the drop down list corresponding to the statement I want to learn X to any level.
The list of courses displayed will automatically change to show only those that match the language and level you are looking for. Remember that unless you already have some knowledge of the language you want to learn, you will need to start with a beginner course before you will be able to follow the more advanced levels.

What do the different course levels mean?
All Linguaphone courses are graded into 5 levels. These levels correspond to approximately how many words the course contains and what skills are covered in the course.
The levels are:
·   Beginner 0 - 600 words Basic simple phrases and words
·   Intermediate 600 - 2000 words Simple conversations and responding to questions
·   Proficient 2000 - 2600 words General conversations and simple reading and writing
·   Advanced 2600 - 3000 words Communicating comfortably
·   Expert 3000+ words Fluent

How do I know what level I am?
·   If you have no knowledge of your new language or can manage a few basic simple phrases and words, you are a beginner.
·   If you can manage simple conversations and responding to questions, you are at an intermediate level.
·   If you can already manage general conversations and simple reading and writing, you are at a proficient level.
·   If you are already communicating comfortably, you are at an advanced level.
·   If you are fluent, then you are already an expert!
We also provide an online assessment to determine your English level.
