How the course works

Learning Platform
The Online Group Courses address various topics out of your everyday life, to familiarize you to important vocabulary and grammar. You learn with an interactive study program, comprising of videos, pictures, audios and texts. You mostly determine your study time individually but you will also be given the opportunity to work in groups. Essential overviews on grammar and vocabulary can be downloaded 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 every two weeks for a live session, during which you will mainly practice speaking and applying the learnt structures. The live sessions will take place either in the evening or over the weekend.
