When students make the effort, we guarantee their progression! If they meet the course requirements, they may progress at the rate shown below. On average students tend to advance one EC level every eight weeks. If it seems like they are not progressing at this rate, we provide them with support.
Our Progress Chart helps students plan their journey to fluency. To get an idea of how many lessons our students need to get to their target level, simply count the weeks.
