Absolutely not. Whether you are a complete beginner in your chosen language or an advanced level student hoping to hit the heights, we will be able to help you achieve your objectives.
Definitely – You can use a laptop, tablet or phone as long as they have a camera, microphone, a good internet connection and you have downloaded Zoom.
All we ask is that you initially sign up for the minimum block of lessons (two-week or four-week, depending on the type course). Lessons may be extended thereafter. We will always try to be flexible to meet the demands of our students.
If you (or the teacher) feel that the course is not appropriate for your needs or level, we will move you onto a more suitable course, subject to availability.
ZOOM is a platform which allows people to meet online to see and talk to each other. It is used for meetings and conferences and is one of the most popular platforms for online teaching. It is free to download and students need to have it downloaded and set up on their device before the course starts. Before each lesson, the teacher sends students a link and instructions to join the lesson – on ZOOM this will be called a “meeting”. You can download ZOOM here: ZOOM DOWNLOAD
It is not necessary to buy any materials. Some students find it useful to have a course book or work book for extra study or reviewing what they have learned, especially for exam preparation courses. The teacher can advise further regarding this. What we do require is that students all have a pen and paper during lessons.
