Spot On Learning's English language programs...

  • Are intentional & measurable
  • Start with measuring at entry. We help participants understand where they stand and how that relates to the proficiency level required by the client or necessary for the job at hand.
  • Set and communicate clear goals and milestones and we design programs that work towards chosen and agreed on goals.
  • Spot On Learning monitors progress and coaches the participant individually to learn effectively.
  • Collect feedback and report to all involved, in order to be able to adjust and improve.
  • Are based on an individual, flexible approach.


Our clients want their international workers to be effective, stay safe and learn continuously to adapt to changing requirements and circumstances. Our English language programs are designed to support these causes. Also, being able to communicate with people from many backgrounds influences social wellbeing and motivation in a positive way.

Content & methodology

We work with a set of online tools, platforms and methods that make it possible for participants to learn effectively. We produce content and design programs that help participants acquire practical skills that they can use in their daily practice. Learning does not stop after finishing our programs but sets in motion that people keep on learning and improving.

Participants are tested at entry, our clients (often employer of a participant) choose a required level, program is then designed to help participants close the gap in a set period. Progress is measured regularly by conducting 'level-up-tests', based on data the learning process is optimized individually. When a participant reaches the required level of general English we often help them acquire a vocabulary that is relevant for their industry or profession.

Spot On Learning partners with EnglishCentral to help people acquire practical language skills. EnglishCentral is an innovative provider of online English conversation solutions. The EnglishCentral platform combines a large collection of English videos, proprietary speech technology, an adaptive vocabulary learning system and live tutors. The cooperation between Spot On Learning and EnglishCentral makes it possible to deliver great solutions and tailor them to the needs of specific industries.
