New offering – ONLINE A1.1. Classes will be taught via ZOOM.
Prior to the first lesson, a 10-15 minute conference on ZOOM will take place to introduce the platform. The platform is very easy to use: 5 minutes before the lesson starts, the instructor will send an email with the link to join the conference room. Participants will enter the virtual Classroom by clicking on the link. Every student will been seen on the screen. The person who speaks automatically gets a larger screen, so it is very easy to follow the conversation. The instructor can share documents with students. A chat box is available and will be used as a board.
This option is very useful for people who would rather stay home to follow a class, or those who live far from our main location.
