Ever think of how expensive the international “standardized” English tests are?
Some cost well over $200, require students to travel to specific centers on a fixed date and above all to stress out as they’re in an unknown environment trying to establish their “English value” for potential studies abroad or a better job. Phew….
And what about those students that don’t have $200?
These issues have been on our mind at Edulang, and we’ve decided to do something about it.
This week we’re launching the Edulang Certificate of English. It is within any student’s budgets as it only costs $10 and will be able to precisely evaluate their level of English. Furthermore, as it’s 100% online, learners can take it within the comfort of their home at anytime 24/7. Just like our pay what you want offer, we hope this opens the range of opportunities to ALL English-language learners across the world, not just those that are well-off.
The Edulang Certificate of English gives an immediate TOEIC® test equivalence and the test-takers can choose to order a formal diploma certified by our team after completing the exam.
A question many will of course ask is: if it’s at home, then how can you know if their brother or mother or cousin aren’t helping them get a better score? Our solution is through webcam monitoring, and we have a system in place to certify whether they were indeed the only one taking the test and present throughout.
Will our democratization in fair pricing and convenience start another revolution in the ELT industry?
I leave that up to you and to your students to decide… and of course, I’ll be doing my best to get the word out, so if our new direction rings true to your ear, please share this with all that might be interested and wish us “bonne chance” as we launch the Edulang Certificate of English!!!
