Through our application process, parents gain a better understanding of which specific parts of their child’s English language ability need improvement. Teachers make course recommendations based on the results of an Englist proficiency assessment.
Start the application process by calling us, sending us a message on LINE, or filling in the contact form on this page.
Step 1. Background information
To ensure the application process proceeds smoothly, parents are required to provide accurate contact information to Englist. They must also provide clear and honest answers about the student’s educational background and English proficiency level.
Step 2. Interview
Students must take part in a live interview in English with an Englist teacher. The purpose of the interview is to help teachers determine a student’s English speaking and listening ability, while also getting to know them on a more personal level. (Interview can be conducted in person or may be taken online)
Step 3. Reading comprehension and grammar test
Our assessments are designed to test students’ English reading, writing, and speaking abilities. The proficiency assessment begins with a reading comprehension and grammar test that helps Englist teacher’s gauge the level of a student’s basic English skills. (Test can be conducted in person or may be taken online)
Step 4. Writing assessment
If students pass the reading comprehension and grammar test, they will be required to complete a writing assessment. This assessment helps teachers better understand the student’s comprehensive writing ability. (Test can be conducted in person or may be taken online)
Step 5. Evaluation and course recommendation
After steps 1 through 4 are complete, we will recommend Englist courses for the student based on what we think will benefit their learning curve the most.

Why is an englist proficiency test required?
We’ve found that many Taiwanese students get excellent scores in English courses at school, but they don’t actually possess an advanced level of comprehension or any practical writing ability. Without genuine fluency in English, students will find it hard to compete in environments where competency isn’t based on a series of grades and scores. By taking our proficiency tests, incoming students gain a true assessment of what their English fluency level is, and will be recommended the most appropriate Englist courses to take in order to maximize their learning growth.
Proficiency over age
We prioritize a student’s English ability over their age, grade, and school scores when we make placement recommendations. In order to help students become the best English communicators they can be, we make sure they are placed in courses where they will experience the most improvement, rather than group kids together according to their ages and grades. Then, through our proprietary curriculum, we help students develop strong writing and critical thinking skills in English.
The Enrollment Process
In order the protect the rights of our students and their parents, and to ensure we provide the best program possible, Englist has very strict policies regarding our enrollment process that parents must be aware of before joining.
Application and evaluation
All new students must successfully go through an application process and parents must clearly understand and agree to Englist classroom policies before enrollment can take place. Proficiency tests include English reading, writing, and interview sections.
Contracts and agreements
Before students can attend class, parents must carefully read and sign an enrollment contract, which includes details about the course, refunds, and costs for tuition, materials, and any relevant other expenses. The contract must be signed and returned to Englist before the first day of class.
