12-week course: £115 (reduced from £145)
Courses start week commencing 20th April 2020.
Due to the Coronavirus, we have moved the current courses onto a ‘live online platform’, which can be accessed via computer, tablet or phone and have found it to be a brilliant way to deliver language classes. Therefore, we have decided to continue the April courses in this way.
We will begin the term with ‘live online lessons’, where students and the teacher can see each other and speak all together and in smaller groups. The teacher can present by sharing slides, worksheets and videos. These interactive facilities allow linguistic games to be played and fun activities to happen. We have been trialling this with our current courses and have received positive feedback from our students.
Regarding cost, our course prices are reduced as most classes will probably take place online. We hope the courses can end as face to face lessons at the venue, where we will have a big party in the lessons to celebrate.
