Form of the course        Individual training through SKYPE  don't limit your learning!
                              If you learn online then you learn with your own private teacher, i.e. you
                               receive individual training. Online learning can either mean that you learn
                               with your teacher on the telephone or that you phone using Skype. Skype
                               is a language program that enables you to telephone whilst sitting at your
                               computer and to write to and receive messages from your teachers at the
                               same time.
                              Through Skype you will speak to your teacher whilst sitting at your
                               computer, just as though you were on the phone. The only difference is
                               that your teacher can send you texts and exercises whilst continuing to
                               speak with you. In this way you practise speaking, listening, reading and
                               writing. If you wish, you can also record the entire lesson and listen to it as
                               often as you need to.
                              If you often have to speak on the phone and also write emails, then online
                               learning is particularly appropriate for you. However, it is also for
                               everybody who wants to gain certainty in their written and spoken
                              Online learning means learning to speak, listen and write in a natural way
                                try out this way of learning, you'll be enthusiastic too! Besides, you can
                               always stop your online lessons and meet your online teacher in a
                               classroom, should you prefer.
Course content           In individual training, the course content is determined by you.

                         we can orientate the lessons entirely around your area of interest and field of work
                         and will seek out suitable texts and materials on the internet. The exercises are
                         constructed according to the subjects that interest you, the mistakes that you
                         make and any areas that you would specifically like to improve. You will learn:
                              to react spontaneously
                              to speak more fluently
                              new vocabulary
