Students must complete a placement test before starting any language course at Tibet World. This allows our staff to place them in the appropriate course level. Each language has three levels: elementary, beginner, and intermediate. The courses run on a 3 months cycle and students must pass a proficiency exam before proceeding to the next level. Successful students with >70% attendance rate receive a proficiency certification based on the level they have completed.
