Guaranteed Progress with Kaplan International English
Be confident in how much English you will learn
Studying English abroad is an investment in your future, so we want to assure you that it is a sensible investment that will get you to where you need to be.
You will advance at least one level of English fluency every 10 weeks on a course that offers Guaranteed Progress. All students are placed in their classes using our adaptive KITE test as well as an initial consultation with one of our academic team. After that, students are tested every 10 weeks (5 weeks in our UK schools) to see if they can progress to the next level. The KITE test adapts to your skill level and measures your progress as you study English to ensure you benefit from a fully tailored learning experience.
If you don’t improve by at least one level every 10 weeks, but have attended 95% of your classes and completed all your homework assignments, then we will stand behind our methods by giving you four weeks of free tuition to get you to that next level.*
