Admission Requirements

You will be qualified to begin with the Beginner Level 2A course if you meet either of the following two conditions:

1- Successfully completing the Introduction Level 1 course.
2- Passing OBA School’s English Proficiency Test 1, 2, and 3. The test can be reached by clicking here.

Progession

Once you have finished successfully studying the Beginner Level 2A course, you can proceed to the Beginner Level 2B English language course.

Duration of The Course and Study Period

The duration of the Beginner Level 2A course is two months. However, it does not necessarily need that long. As a reference for you to estimate accordingly, you would need around 100 hours of studying to complete the course. Hence you can schedule the duration based on dividing 100 hours by how many hours you plan to study per week resulting in the number of weeks required to finish the course.

Although the above method of estimation is only a guide, completing your course depends on several factors such as your employment situation. You could be a full-time employee, a part-time employee, or unemployed. Another factor would be your ability to dedicate time to study. Setting a study schedule is not difficult but committing to it needs determination and persistence. It would need to be remembered that it is your own responsibility to dedicate enough time to complete your studies.

The Equivalent Formal Test and Qualification from Cambridge:

Studying the Beginner Level 2A and 2B with OBA School does not include any official Cambridge qualification. The Pre-Intermediate 4A and 4B level at OBA School has an equivalent official qualification.
