Assessment Test

Get started by taking your Level Assessment

Now, we know it can be tempting to jump ahead. You’re ready to start practicing, after all… You’ve got 1000 questions…

…but, whatever you do, don’t skip this step! It’s going to serve as the foundation for your entire course, and your teacher will use the information to get you pointed in the right direction. In the end, you will save a lot of time.

After you complete the Level Assessment Test, you will receive study recommendations by email so you can get started in the fastest, most efficient way.

Self-Introduction

Next, log in to Premium Plus Messenger and write a self-introduction.

This key exercise will set the stage for every future relationship you’ll have with speakers of the language you’re studying.

If you have trouble with this, it’s no problem. Just ask! Your teacher is there for you.

After your teacher receives your self-introduction, he or she will review it, offer feedback and corrections, and help you make it even stronger.

Record Yourself

Writing your self-introduction is an important step, but how many times will you introduce yourself in writing?

Probably not as many times as you’ll need to speak it out loud. That’s why your next step is to record your self-introduction.

Few people know this, but this is one of the secrets to learning a language.

Your teacher will help you improve pronunciation and fluency, but, more importantly, this activity will give you confidence to use your self-introduction in your everyday life.

Set Your Self-study Schedule

Your teacher can offer you an unlimited amount of flexibility in organizing your studies.

For best results, though, you should set up a self-study schedule ahead of time and then submit it to your teacher.

This will help you stay on track, and your teacher can use it to keep you accountable to your commitment.

To help you plan, we’ve created a form that lets you break down your study week-by-week.

“Now I see I should have signed into Premium PLUS program immediately at the beginning. My progress would be much faster because the program is very well thought through and helps develop quickly in writing, listening and speaking the language in a relatively short period of time.”

- Libuse Kral

 

I have been enjoying learning with premium PLUS for a little more than a year now. The teaching program is very well done. I have found it a pleasure to be able to ask the teacher anything relating to the language. I have been able to work on parts of grammar that I did not understand and have the teacher correct them, or get information on what words or expressions are currently being used. I am very happy with the program and really having a good time learning the language.”
