With around 42 million non-English household speakers in the U.S., a number that’s steadily risen for more than three decades, this test facilitates learning by allowing for specialized instruction alongside peers who share similar proficiency levels. It’s also an important entry point to establishing realistic learning objectives and measuring a participant’s progress.
“Part of what makes Open English such a successful English-learning platform is our emphasis on students beginning their studies at the right level, with the right native-speaking teachers and the right study plan,” explained Andrés Moreno, founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Open English. “Our new English proficiency test will make this process even easier, giving students the confidence they need to succeed.”
According to the United States Census Bureau’s American Community Survey Report titled “Language Use in the United States: 2019,” nearly 62% of the U.S. population speaks exclusively Spanish at home. Of those, 14.5% rated their English-speaking ability as “not well,” with 7.3% not speaking English at all. And while the U.S. doesn’t have an official language, English is the most commonly used. Meaning those who lack proficiency may face social, economic or educational roadblocks. Not only do these statistics make Open English’s proficiency test a critical first step in English-learning, it emphasizes the importance of the company’s customized learning solutions for non-English speakers.
