How does Direct English Live work?
At the end of your level, after attending most of our lessons, you will be given a Direct English certificate. Once a month, the Direct English London team organise online graduation ceremonies to congratulate for students’ achievement, and your class might be in one of these once you’ve achieved your level! At the end of your course, your access to the learning platform will be cancelled and you can decide if you wish to progress to the next level in our course!

Is the certificate of achievement industry approved?
If you decide to embark on a learning journey with us and start either the Beginner or Immediate courses, you will become CEFR certified in A1 or B1. These levels were developed by the Council of Europe to validate language learning ability by giving students a firm understanding of English grammar and vocabulary. The CEFR Framework was designed to convey the different levels of oral, written comprehension of the English language. Teachers can use this framework to determine what level their students are and if they require any extra help. Direct English Live’s levels are aligned with the CEFR’s framework.
What is the difference between A1 and B1 levels?
Whereas a B1 learner will be able to understand and express their opinions about a particular topic, understand the main points of texts regarding their career, school or social lives. Additionally, they will be able to communicate without sustained effort to Native speakers.
