Why Learners Love Promova
Frequently asked questions
Is learning English more difficult for adults?
It’s true that children go through a “critical period” where they can absorb languages and quickly become fluent. This is how many people become bilingual at an early age. However, older kids and teenagers also tend to forget languages if they don’t regularly use them in daily life.
This doesn’t mean that learning English for adults has to be difficult. In fact, the common element at any age is practice. If you can find a way to actively use English in your life, age doesn’t matter at all. What matters is your motivation to spend at least 10 minutes a day consciously improving your language skills. Luckily, Promova makes it easy!
Should I study on my own or join a class?
Why not both? It’s best to think of mastering English as part of a life-long learning process. Whenever you get a chance to practice on your own, you should take it. For example, you can listen to news, podcasts, videos, and so on in English as part of your listening practice. At the same time, you can take a weekly class to take your skills to the next level faster.
Some people simply learn faster in groups. So, taking English classes online for adults can greatly increase your learning speed. If you choose to study 1x1 with a tutor, you can also benefit from an individual study plan that helps you learn from things you already know and love.
What English level do I need to get a job?
International companies typically look for professionals who have a B2 (Upper-intermediate) or higher English proficiency. However, the exact requirements will depend on your job. For example, you might get a starting position at the B1 level. At the same time, management and sales positions will usually require C1 and higher language skills.
We recommend practicing English for interviews first to create a great CV and learn about the most common questions. Even if your language skills aren’t high enough, preparing for interviews can help increase your confidence and discover where you need to improve to get the job of your dreams.
How quickly can I become fluent as an adult?
Research shows that fluency in English takes 500-700 hours of practice. The average depends on whether your native language is in the Indo-European language family. However, each learner is unique, and the exact time will depend on your abilities and motivation.
You can also get this practice at any pace you like. For example, some learn best when they’re 100% immersed in the language and spend 2+ hours a day actively learning and practicing. They’re most likely to benefit from an intensive English course and strict deadlines. Others prefer bite-sized learning with short 10-25-minute lessons.
Either way, the best part about learning English as an adult is that you get to set your own pace and do as much or as little as you need to achieve your goals.
