Is the app a real app?

Yes and no. Yes, because it is a small program (application) that offers you to learn English in a simple, repetitive and effective way. No, it is not an app that can be downloaded in the App or Play Stores. It is more than that: it is a web-app that works on all kinds of devices: on your desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphone! So don’t download it, but simply subscribe at this website www.englishaday.com!

What does the app cost?

  • Nothing, it’s free
  • Maybe some sweat and tears
  • Free of irritating pop-ups and commercial advertisements

After having scored on level C2 with an average of 80% or higher you’ll receive our Congratulations page. Then you can choose between: saying bye-bye to English a Day (quit) or keep receiving daily tests. That is all up to you!

How can you unsubscribe?

Log in, go to the settings page and turn off your subscription by switching off the daily mail: “Don’t send me my daily mail”.

When you feel like playing again, just tick the option: “Send me my daily mail” in the settings page.

I, Sandra Wormgoor, the initiator and creator of this web-application called English A Day, and owner of the language company Taaltutor, declares the following:

  1. English A Day is a web-application that offers free English questions to anyone who wants to test her or his English on a daily basis. The app is meant to learn English on any digital device connected to the Internet, ranging from a desktop computer to a smart phone or tablet.
  2. The web-app offers level indications, based on the Common European Framework (CEF), a standard set of levels for languages in order to use in education and the job market. The levels range from A1 (beginner) through C2 (near-native/native speaker) and have been applied to the questions in the app. The levels are indications and represent no official value. In case someone disagrees strongly with the set level we invite you to comment through sending us an e-mail.
  3. Taaltutor has made up all content in this web-app, both text and audio. If in questions parts of other sources are included, the source has been quoted and Taaltutor has mentioned the title of the book or video and the author or producer. If you come across any text fragment in this web-app that you think needs to have any kind of accreditation, please let me know and I will adjust it if justified.
