How long does it take to complete each stage?

The amount of time needed to complete each stage varies across individual students, and depends on external factors, such as quality of connection and frequency of lessons. Stages vary in length as well, so some of them can be completed faster than others. On average, the time frame for particular stages is as follows:

Stage 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
No of lessons 22-32 37-47 38-48 51-61 48-58 42-52 45-55 44-54 61-71 59-69 65-75 64-74

What factors can influence my progress?

- Frequency of lessons
Every lesson begins with a revision of material from previous lessons. The more often you take lessons, the better you remember the revised material, and the less repetition you need. If you do less repetition, you have more time for new work and you progress faster.

- Connection quality
It's very important that your tutors and you can hear each other clearly. You need to learn correct pronunciation from them, and they need to correct any mistakes that you make. Your tutor and you will speak simultaneously a lot of the time, so it's important that there is no lag. If there are sound issues, your lessons will be less efficient and your progress will be slower.

- Exercises
Between lessons, you will be able to do Exercises that will help you revise on your own as well as practice spelling. If you do these Exercises regularly, you will remember previous lessons better and need less repetition.
