What is a competency-based curriculum?

A "competency-based curriculum" is focused on the mastery of practical real-life skills, as opposed to abstract themes.

LearnCube breaks up each CEFR level into 18 units. Each unit represents a student competency and covers each of the four language skills (reading, speaking, listening, and writing) with a special emphasis on speaking.

LearnCube offers content for General English, Business English and English for Young Learners.
