You can use all devices and gadgets on both web and mobile interface extensions to access the platform.


You will need an electronic device with a web browser and internet access (with a recommended speed of at least 1 Mbps) that is compatible with our platform.


On which browsers does the platform work best?

  • While there are different browsers and devices to use the app, for the smooth functioning of the platform, we recommend the following browsers:
    •  Use the latest version of Google Chrome 
    •  Use the latest version of Safari

Which mobile operating system should I use for the mobile version of the platform?

To ensure the smooth operation of the platform on a mobile device, we suggest using the following operating systems. These recommendations are in addition to the above-mentioned preferred browser guidelines:

  • Android: Either the latest version or versions starting from Android 9.0+ (Pie)
  • iOS: Either the latest version or versions starting from iOS 14+


Please, note that using an older version of a mobile operating system could result in slower speeds and technical problems. 

Why does learning on the platform take place in English without the use of my native language?

At Emery, we believe that complete immersion in an English-speaking environment is the most effective way to learn a language. By experiencing and acquiring knowledge directly in the target language, it becomes better ingrained and easier to remember. This approach closely resembles the process of gradually learning to navigate real-life situations in a foreign country, such as shopping or asking for directions. The knowledge gained through immersion stays with You for the long term because You have personally acquired it.

Our platform has been designed to recreate these immersive experiences, providing You with opportunities to acquire knowledge. Additionally, our materials feature native speakers with different accents, helping You prepare for real-world scenarios and understand individuals from various parts of the world.

Using your native language during the learning process creates a comfort zone that can hinder your ability to communicate freely in the new language. Relying on your native language can tempt you to seek translations or explanations, reducing your motivation to speak the target language and overcome the language barrier. Our successful 23-year experience teaching English without using a native language gives us confidence in this approach.

If I face any difficulties with the platform, what kind of support can I receive?

You can always contact us via our online chat support or e-mail.

How often do I need to study?

To achieve mastery and solidify the material, you need to allow for decent time to learn English. We recommend engaging in learning activities at least three times per week, each lasting one to two hours. Yet, you can select any studying schedule that suits you and still achieve amazing results. Enjoy your learning journey with Emery!
