Why does the business course begin with level B1?

What does learning on the ELLA e-learning platform look like?
ELLA is a proprietary platform based on years of experience of language learning specialists. Courses on the e-learning platform consist of self-study materials that involve individual work, adjusted to the employee's pace of learning. That's why ELLA is based on exercises that were specially designed by language learning experts. The platform is supported by motivational systems, which help stimulate employee motivation for learning.

How do we measure user progress?
ELLA gives chosen HR department representatives access to the employer panel, where activity statistics can be retrieved. It allows gaining information about the time spent learning, test, results, accuracy, and even user engagement.
What is the engagement rate on the platform?
Thanks to gamification, the ELLA platform has unusually high learner engagement rates. Additionally, in cooperation with HR departments, we develop strategies for additional motivational elements for employees - prizes for the most active users, charity fundraisers, and goal-oriented collections. The most active users can spend over 10 hours a week on the platform. Najbardziej aktywni użytkownicy potrafią spędzić ponad 10 godzin tygodniowo na platformie.
Can I expect from employees that they fill out a set number of lessons per week?
As specialists in language learning, we do not recommend the "stick" methods (from the carrot and stick method) - we advise positively motivating employees to learn English by additional activities and prizes. There are several difficulties with imposing a program for employees - and they are not technical. First of all, not all lessons are the same. Lessons on a higher level very often demand more focus and work than lessons on a lower advancement level. Secondly, remember that everyone learns at a different pace. The elderly or people who have never had contact with a foreign language will most likely learn at a slower pace. By incorporating the ELLA e-learning platform into our corporate structures, we eliminate those variations, because everyone can learn at their own pace and can repeat the material as many times as necessary to fully comprehend it. That is why we do not recommend setting hard targets for employees. Trudnością w wyznaczaniu obowiązkowych do przerobienia lekcji na platformie jest co najmniej kilka. Po pierwsze - lekcja lekcji nierówna. Lekcje na wyższych poziomach często wymagają więcej pracy niż lekcje na niższych poziomach. Po drugie, pamiętajmy że każdy z nas uczy się w innym tempie. Osoby starsze lub takie które nigdy nie miały kontaktu z językiem będą uczyć się wolniej. Wdrażając platformę elearningową ELLA w firmie niwelujemy te niesprawiedliwości gdyż na platformie każdy może uczyć się we własnym tempie i dowolną ilość razy powtarzać materiał do jego pełnego zrozumienia i przyswojenia. Z tego też powodu nie rekomendujemy wyznaczania twardych celów pracownikom.
Is there a Business English course available on the platform?
Yes, on the ELLA platform there is an extensive Business English course.
