After one year of intense study, the average student should be quite
capable of picking up a new language or learning to play a new instrument.
After two or three years they would be highly capable. There need be almost
no emphasis on exams. If you speak French, then you speak French. If you
play piano and someone wants to know if you play, then, you just play for
them - and impress them!
A certificate would simply state 'Piano: 1 year of sustained study'. The
level achieved is up to the student. With little emphasis on testing the
student is less stressed and free to learn. Of course, they would be
expected to 'perform'.
