Adopted by over 100 English language centres and schools

The English Language Barometer is an adapted version of the Student Barometer designed  specifically to measure the English language learner experience and identify areas of key importance to English language students. Available in nine languages, it also helps identify whether students would recommend their English Language centre to others, and identify aspects of the experience that can influence recommendation.


  • Evaluate and enhance the English language student experience

  • Identify your Centre’s competitive strengths and weaknesses

  • Understand differences in experience between different groups of students

  • Develop evidence-based targeted communications to prospective students

  • Inform your recruitment strategies

  • Optimise resource allocation

"The feedback we received, particularly regarding ‘Learning’, is by far the most positive I’ve seen in terms of both ranking and base score. It paints a picture of how the College continues to provide an excellent student experience.”

– Duncan Perrin, Manager, Strategic Projects and Teacher Development
