My Ardor English Training Program

Our comprehensive online English training program in four simple steps:

1. Online Placement Test

Ardor Learning offers two different assessment models to ensure that learners start their coursework at the appropriate learning level.

Our detailed online test consists of 60 questions
to measure the learners’ level of English and automatically place them in the appropriate level starting course.

Our two-part testing model also includes a spoken language assessment with a trained Ardor teacher.

2. Course Study

Learners have up to 6 months to complete their assigned level of the course, during which they have unlimited access to course material and training activities in the My Ardor English Campus.

Courses are equivalent to 50 hours of study.

3. Tutoring Services

Tutors motivate and guide learners to reach their goals, answering any questions they might have about the language, using the course materials,
or their progress and objectives.

My Ardor English uses a unique “dynamizer” model that puts learners in direct one-to-one contact with their language coach.

Ardor Learning engages teachers that are passionate about learning and have business experience, so you get more than just a teacher who is trying to navigate the business world.

4. Course Completion

At the end of the program, learners that meet the objectives of the course are awarded a course completion certificate from Ardor Learning. Many learners may go on to complete higher level courses.

Ardor Learning’s focus on true learning outcomes ensures that you complete the course with a valuable language toolkit that has been tried and tested, and that can be deployed in the workplace immediately.

Structure

The course consists of 12 levels with a clear correspondence to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, ranging from A1 (Beginner) to C1 (Advanced).

Learners can study entirely in English or with the support of instructions and explanations in Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese, Italian, French, German, Turkish, Chinese, Japanese, or Korean.

Levels 1 to 10 (A1-B2) provide a solid base of grammar and vocabulary while developing the four language skills – listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Levels 11 and 12 (C1) focus on building the business and communication skills learners need for immediate use in their work.

Methodology

Successful language acquisition depends on four key factors: motivation, quality content, proven methodology, and effective teaching. My Ardor English offers the highest quality content that engages and entertains learners, and motivates them to study.

The course’s clear and intuitive structure and its methodology have been originally crafted by Oxford’s English language teaching experts to provide a clear itinerary for learners to reach their goals.

The tutor and virtual teacher provide additional guidance and support throughout the training program, enhancing learner engagement and achievement.

Each unit centers on a high-quality video that serves as the learning vehicle. Videos present the topic, grammar, and key expressions in an entertaining and memorable manner.

Thanks to its varied interactive activities, My Ardor English equips learners with the language and skills they need to communicate and work confidently and effectively in English.

Annabel, the My Oxford English virtual teacher

Virtual teacher

The virtual teacher, Annabel, introduces the topic of each unit, guides learners through the activities, and gives explanations on the language presented. Annabel will also provide pronunciation tips.

My Oxford English's integrated voice recording system

Integrated voice recording system

Throughout the course, learners speak English in a range of oral activities. My Ardor English uses simulated conversation, whereby learners interact with the characters from the videos. By putting everything they’ve learned in the unit into practice, learners are able to practice their pronunciation extensively. Voice recordings compare their pronunciation of the new vocabulary and structures with that of a native English speaker.

Oxford's Oxford Study Dictionary

Dictionary and grammar bank

The My Ardor English platform contains two integrated study tools:

  • An online Oxford learner’s dictionary with British and American English audio pronunciation
  • The Grammar Bank – a quick-reference grammar guide containing clear and concise summaries and examples

Campus

Learners have unlimited access to the My Ardor English Campus, which contains an array of additional activities that boost study in a more informal manner. In the Campus, learners recycle and extend what they’ve learned in their level of the course. This repetition and re-application is a fundamental aspect of successful language acquisition. From games to quizzes, articles, travel guides, and grammar and vocabulary activities, the Campus offers learners hours of extra practice.
