Many of us have little time in the day for much more than we are already doing, and NESE understand this. It is for this very reason that we designed the NESE On-Line Self-Study System. It allows you to take classes - follow the same award-winning curriculum that students in our live classes follow - but entirely on a schedule that you choose. Further, you can study at whatever speed you want, for example doing 2 hours of English one day and just 20 minutes the next. It is entirely up to you.
How many levels are there in the Self-Study System?
Do I pay for each level?
No, you don’t. The Self-Study System is designed to be a subscription system, which means you pay a set fee each month. This set fee gives you unlimited access to the entire program (which is based on the curriculum that we use in our live classes). In each level, you watch a series of videos and complete the required interactive exercises and quizzes (which will be corrected and scored). Then, when you have completed all the requirements for the level, you take a final level exam. However, you can only move up to the next level after you pass – of course!
Does the Self-Study System include any live private classes?
NESE On-Line offers two different levels of subscriptions. The higher level includes 4 live private classes per month, which complement and reinforce your studies. The basic level does not include any private classes in the monthly fee. Naturally, with both levels, you can purchase as many additional private (or group) classes as you wish, and you will receive a 5% discount!
Who are the teachers on the videos?
All the teachers are current or former NESE teachers. They all have years of teaching experience, both at NESE and in programs outside of NESE. The majority of them (80%) hold degrees from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
What if I don’t understand something in my level?
Before you start the NESE On-Line Self-Study System, you will take a placement test. Your test results will indicate the best level for you to begin your studies, and this level will be your starting point. However, if you find a certain grammar point (or points) difficult, you can simply use the NESE On-Line search tool to watch lower-level videos of the specific grammar point - as often as you want.
How many times can I watch each video?
You can watch each video - at your level and in lower levels - as many times as you want. Every student learns in a different way, and some students learn more quickly than others. It is for this very reason that we have designed the system to allow you to watch the videos as often as you want. NESE On-Line teachers and you share the same objective - your success.
I have finished all 10 Levels of the NESE On-Line Self-Study System. What can I do now?
There are several choices:
- You can watch additional videos on a range of topics through NESE On-Line’s Self-Study System. Topics include:
- Specific high-level grammar points that are not included in the 10-level video system
- Grammar points for IELTS and TOEFL
- “English for Specific Purposes” videos – these include topics such as Aviation English, Tourism English, and “Small-Talk English”
- You can use the search tool to find a video that you want to watch again.
- We add new videos to the NESE On-Line video library all the time, and so please keep checking back for new videos.
* You can take NESE On-Line Live Group and Private Classes – and remember, you will receive a 5% discount.
How long am I required to pay for the subscription?
The subscription system is an auto-renew system. You can cancel after only one month. There is no minimum number of months that you are required to subscribe.
Will I receive a certificate?
Yes. You will receive a certificate when you have successfully completed each level.
