In order for you to make rapid progress in English, it is important that you make this language an important part of your everyday life. Whether you're at home or in the office, we encourage you to stay in touch with the language through movies, dialogue, music, and articles that are relevant to you. "Think in English" (in your head or out loud), interact on social media in your second language, and start using technical terms from your area in English more often.
We recommend reading our contents about it:
Learning a language is like climbing a mountain: the climb becomes more difficult the higher you climb. Don't take the same amount of time to get to each level.
It takes more time to get to B2 from B1 than it does to get to A2 from A1.
As language progresses, the person needs to acquire a wider range of language knowledge and skills. Furthermore, when going beyond the B1 level, most students reach a linguistic plateau and acquisition declines.
The Association of Language Testers of Europe (ALTE) offers guidance on the number of guided teaching hours required to meet the objectives of each CEF level:
- A1 Approximately 90 - 100 hours
- A2 Approximately 180 - 200 hours
- B1 Approximately 350 - 400 hours
- B2 Approximately 500 - 600 hours
- C1 Approximately 700 - 800 hours
- C2 Approximately 1,000 - 1,200 hours
The truth is, it's never too late to learn new skills. While children and teenagers find it easier to absorb new knowledge, middle-aged adults can also become fluent in English, they just need the right learning approach and a personalized study plan.
