German A1 E-School
Online language course with online group lessons
Do you want the flexibility of an online course while having the interaction of a live class? With an E-school language course you’ll combine self-paced learning with six integrated online group lessons in a virtual classroom. You’ll work through activities on your own and then deepen what you’ve learned in an online group lesson. Small groups with a maximum of eight people will enable you to strengthen your language skills and even though it’s an online language course you’ll have social interaction within the class. The online community allows you to share information and ideas outside of the group, and you can also book an optional online private lesson with your personal tutor.
