In case you do not take either of these tests, you would not be eligible for the certificate.

I was expecting STEPathon to be good but I found it amazing and interesting too. The concepts were clear and I just spent 1-2 hours per day. The final assessment tested my skills and I feel more confident when I speak, write or listen. I am feeling satisfied and contented with the STEPathon course. Hope you guys keep rocking. My best wishes.

Stepathon is a nice course. I learnt a lot from this course. It's really an easy way to learn English within a short period.

Thank God I saw the Step advertisement in the Hindu. The way the mentors taught was very useful. They used practical methods to teach English.

S. Praywin Prakash

As the course is an initiative of The Hindu, it is expected that the course has to be good, detailed and complete. STEPathon has managed to capture many topics in English grammar and it was clearly explained. The best part is, if you don't understand something, you can go back and listen to it again.

I enjoyed the course. The best part of the course is that you can do it whenever and wherever you want.

I took the online English STEPathon course to enhance and improve my knowledge of the subject. The course proved to be very useful in developing my vocabulary as well as listening skills. The web lessons which were provided were very helpful in clearing my doubts and confusion I had in grammar. The course design was very innovative and easy to access and follow. The practice tests were a confidence booster. In short, with this program one can gain a considerably good knowledge of the language with little effort if one is interested and dedicated to learn.
