  1. 1. Where the World Learns English™ Englishlink User’s Guide www.englishlink.com
  2. 2. Welcome! This User’s Guide directs you through your lessons. Each learner has different strengths and weaknesses in the English language, so please do the lessons at your own pace. Sit down to study at a time when you feel motivated and alert. We recommend 1 lesson every other day. What we teach in a 1-hour lesson equals 2-3 hours in a traditional classroom. We want you to do the complete lesson at one time. However, if you stop a lesson in the middle, the video clip will be “bookmarked”. When you login again, you continue from this video. Beginning a Unit of Study To begin your lessons, go to www.englishlink.com Click Student Login.To The FIRST TIME you log in, you are asked to change your password. Pick something easy to remember  Use you’re your email address and password we emailed you with your login information, and click Login. After you login, you will be on the Getting Started page. This is where you communicate with the system. You will see the link to the Placement Test. We suggest you do the Placement Test before you begin your studies, so you know the best Unit to start in. However, you do not have to do the test. Englishlink User’s Guide 2011 2
