You will get access to our online platform where you will find the online part of your chosen course. This online part contains motivating and varied exercises, flashcards to practise vocabulary, and summaries of all the important grammar structures and expressions you will learn during the course.

Your online tutor will give you weekly training tasks which you can work on flexibly at your own pace within the respective week. These tasks prepare you for the weekly face-to-face sessions in which you will meet with your class online. Most online activities are carried out individually. But there are also some types of tasks that are interactive and where you interact with your learning group on the online platform. These group activities include, for example, small texts about your hobbies, interests or upcoming events. You also take part in group discussions and comment on texts written by your learning partners.
All course materials you need for the blended learning and the online course are provided online free of charge.
