Hello Sales Team,

I’ve got an idea for next week – see the attached file. I’d like to hear what you think about my suggestion.

Hi! I wonder how can I keep a record in the lessons that I've completed and if when I finish this course there is a chance to have any kind of certification. With thanks, Celeste

Hi CelesteBusso,

The materials on LearnEnglish are made available for self-study rather than as a course, so no certification is provided and if you want to keep track of your work then you'll need to organise that yourself.

We do also offer courses which work as you describe. You can find these described here:
