Learning Plans: Free – Student – Pro

Free Content

Why do you offer free lessons?

We are passionate about what we do and we want to help as many students as possible not only learn English, but learn perfectly. Learning English is something that has benefits for many, many people and can make a significant difference to their lives.

We also like to do things differently. That’s why we use real, highly qualified and very experienced teachers to present the lessons to you in the most personal way possible.

 

 

 

Is the content really free?

Yes. Access to all 300 A1 – C1 (Elementary to Advanced levels) video lessons is free, no payment details required before or after registration.

Additional learning materials are available for subscribers. Check Our Plans page to understand all the benefits of each plan

 

Can I subscribe for free?

Yes. Absolutely!

Access to all 300 A1 – C1 (Elementary to Advanced levels) video lessons is still free. No payment details required before or after registration.

Do I need to give you any payment details?

All 300 A1 – C1 video lessons will still be free, and no payment details  will be required before or after registration for everyone staying in the FREE Plan.

Can I enrol into any free course?

Yes you can take any free course. And you can change level at any time.

Student Plan & Pro Plan

Why are you offering different subscription options?

Because you asked us to! Some students only want lessons, other students want lots more practice and a certificate. Some students want more specialist courses so we have created different plans. But you can change plans at any time. Your maximum commitment to any plan is just 1 month.

Check Our Plans  page to understand all the  benefits of each plan.

 

 

How long do I need to stay on a plan?

There’s no commitment to stay in a plan. If you join one of our subscription plans your minimum commitment is 1 month.
The renewal will happen automatically every month and you can cancel your subscription at any time.
If the subscription is not renewed we will place you on the FREE Plan, but you will still be able to access all features in your plan until the end of your monthly subscription.

Subscriptions

Payment Methods

How can I pay for a subscription?
We accept all major credit cards for individual students and bank transfers for our corporate clients. Unfortunately we can’t accept paypal payments at this time.

Double verification
Please note that to make sure all electronic payments are even more secure we are now required to follow new rules called SCA Strong Customer Authentication. This means we must have double verification for any payment. This means using a second authentication factor, most commonly, a once only passcode sent to your mobile phone.

Can I subscribe for 1 month only?

Yes. You can subscribe for one month only, but you must remember to cancel your subscription before the end of the end of the month* if you do not want to continue after that month.
(*A month is 30 calendar days from when you paid your subscription fee)

Will my subscription renew automatically?

Yes. All subscriptions plans automatically renew (at the end of the month or the year) unless you cancel your subscription (see ‘How do I cancel my subscription’).

If I stop my subscription, can I come back and continue my studies at a later date?

Yes. If you cancel your subscription, your account is not deleted (Unless you chose to delete your account).

You are put on the FREE plan. This means all your learning history and progress is saved. You can continue on the FREE plan AND you can choose to subscribe again at any time and continue your studies at the stage where you finished.

 

 

 

Can I upgrade my Plan from Free to Student or Student to Pro?

Yes. At any time. Simply go to your dashboard and click on Upgrade Subscription (if you are on the Free Plan) or Change Subscription (if you already are in the Student or Pro Plan)

 

 

 

If I upgrade from the Student to the Pro Plan before the end of the month will I lose the money I paid ?

No. Any subscription time you have remaining on your plan will automatically be discounted pro rata off the cost of the payment for the new plan.

For example. If you subscribe to the Student Plan ($10 per month) and half way through the month you decide to upgrade to the PRO plan ($30 per month), your first monthly payment for the new PRO plan will be $30 – $5 (for the half month of the Student Plan you didn’t use), so you will only pay $25 for the first month.

How do I cancel my subscription?

Simply go to your dashboard.

My Account/Subscriptions.

Click the ‘Cancel’ button.

Can I cancel my subscription at any time?

Yes.You can cancel at any time. Your subscription will finish at the end of the billing period so you will still have access to your subscription Plan for the period you have paid for.

For example, if you have a monthly subscription which runs from 10th March, and you cancel on the 20th  March, your subscription will end on the 10th April (end of the billing period) so you will have access to all your courses until the 10th April,  but you will not be charged again on the 10th April. You will then automatically be placed on the FREE plan and you learning history will be saved on your dashboard.

 

Certificates

Can I get an IELTS or Cambridge Examination Certificate from Perfectly Spoken?

Unfortunately neither we nor any online provider of courses can provide officially recognised certificates at the moment. The reason for this is simple: security. So, at the moment, a student must go to a physical centre (and there are thousands around the world) where they can take the exams under close supervision.

 

It is certainly our plan to become a recognised Preparation Centre for Cambridge and other organisations and already our lessons are used by many many students to help them prepare for official exams.

Can I get a certificate of completion?

Student and Pro subscribers will receive an official Perfectly Spoken Certificate of Course Completion when they complete a final Course Assessment and they have a pass rate of 70% or more.

This Certificate will show the  final result (%) of the last Course Assessment taken.

 

 

 

What is the 'Course Assessment'?

This is a final course test that will enable Student and Pro subscribers to receive an official Perfectly Spoken Certificate of Course Completion when they take it and they achieve a pass rate of 70% or more.

We recommend you practice for this end of course test by taking all the lesson tests and studying the extra materials.

You can take this test as many times as you like.

When you are happy with the results, you can request to get your Certificate of Course Completion.

This Certificate will show the  final result (%) of the last Course Assessment taken.

 

 

Downloads & content use

Can I download the videos?

No, they are streamed only. Please note the lessons and all associated materials are © Perfectly Spoken.

Can I have downloadable materials?

Subscribers to the Student and Pro plans can download extra materials that are attached to the Review lessons. Each review lesson contains 1 Grammar Sheet + 1 Vocabulary Bank that are downloadable as PDFs.

Have a look at these TOP TIPS to help you understand the best way for you to learn

Top Tips

How to make the most of Perfectly Spoken

Advice from students and teachers

Take the level test.

It’s free and takes just 10 minutes

It’s not perfect but it will give you a good idea of which course you should start your English language learning journey with at Perfectly Spoken

Focus

You can learn on your mobile on your laptop but like most things that are good for you.
You need to make sure you can focus on the lesson and not have too many distractions; so try and find somewhere quiet where you can concentrate

Watch and watch again

As with many things, the second (or even third ) time of us doing something, that thing becomes easier to understand –easier to do! So watch and watch the lesson again, pause and think about the content.

Test yourself

Your teacher will often ask you questions during the lesson so stop the video, think about the answer and even write it down and then continue the recording.

If you get something wrong, go back and watch again and test yourself again.

Finally, when you are ready to do the lesson test, think very carefully about your answers. You can take the tests again but the first time you do it is the most important one. (Please note tests are available as part of the Student and Pro Plans)

Establish a routine

On average we suggest taking 2 lessons a week for you at your level, but remember you need to make sure you understand everything and do the lesson test before you move on to the next lesson.

Practice with us with Live lessons

At the moment we offer free Facebook live lessons every week which give students a chance to practice and interact with our teachers – your teacher. You should take advantage of these. Even if you can’t attend the live lesson, you can always watch the lesson at a later time

Check for the upcoming sessions in the EVENTS section of our fanpage.

In the future we will be offering lots more exciting opportunities to practice.

Experiment

Although you can start more than 1 course at a time, we recommend you start and follow one at a time.

It’s a good idea to watch each lesson in order in the course to make good progress. But, remember you can change courses at any time if the course is too easy or too difficult

And of course you can watch ANY lesson of at any level… so experiment!
