Lessons are delivered online using a combination of different approaches including Zoom (with its different features allowing for full class interaction with teacher, whiteboards, breakout rooms for interaction between pairs and smaller groups).
Your teacher will cover the four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing and will monitor your learning during class and answer your questions just like in a real classroom. Your teacher can arrange to speak to students individually using Zoom or can communicate using email or WhatsApp.
Your teacher will send you all the necessary information, with a code for the meeting and a password.
Your teacher will manage the online lessons and will also assign homework. This could be reading or grammar revision or a writing assignment. To make the most of your online lessons you should do whatever work your teacher assigns you for homework so that you come to class prepared. Self-study is an important part of any English programme.
You can also avail of additional guided learning with free access to our custom-built Emerald Learn platform, where extra support and learning resources are available.
Finally, don’t be afraid to engage in extra study, discussions or idea sharing with your classmates from around the world.
