Our conversation courses start from level A1+ and up. If you want to register for a conversation course, you must first register for an intake (a 20-minute call with one of our teachers), to make sure you will be placed in the right group. Your starting level will be defined in CEFR-terms. After the intake call, you can register straight away for the advised course . The intake is included in the course fee.
At the end of the course, you will receive an attendance certificate with your starting and attainment level, on condition that you have attended at least 75% of the lessons. Attendance certificates are included in the course fee. This is not an official diploma, only government institutions can award those.
