How the course works

Learning Platform 
The online group courses cover different topics from your everyday life in order to familiarise yourself with important vocabulary and grammar. The interactive learning programme consists of videos, pictures, audios and texts. You can also download important grammar and vocabulary summaries from the learning platform. 
Support from your teacher 
Your teacher corrects longer writing exercises and will provide detailed feedback on your writing. In case you have any queries, you can always contact the teacher via the forum or by email. 
Online Live Sessions 
You will meet your teacher and other group members regularly for a live session, during which you will mainly practice speaking and applying the learnt structures.
