Online language classes

{slider title="What is online learning?" class="orange solid color_content"}Online learning means that you can join your class live from home on your own computer device. The classes will take place through an online platform (ZOOM).

{slider title="Can we still do pair or group work?" class="orange solid color_content"}Yes, you can. On Zoom there is a facility to send groups of learners into breakout rooms. In break out rooms you can work in pairs or small groups. Your tutor is able to join the rooms to support you and answer questions, just as in a normal classroom.{/slider}

{slider title="Why have you decided to run online sessions?" class="orange solid color_content"}We are running because our recent survey showed that 80% of our learners enjoy online learning.{/slider}

{slider title="What about the 20% who are not in favour of online learning?" class="orange solid color_content"}Looking forward we would like to offer you a variety of modes of lesson deliveries, including face to face teaching. We will keep online lessons but we will also offer Hybrid classes where some learners are taught in the classroom and others are following the session interactively from home on their computer devices.{/slider}

{slider title="What equipment do I need to join an online class?" class="orange solid color_content"}You need a computer / laptop or a tablet with a stable internet connection. You also need a microphone and loudspeakers.{/sliders}


Hybrid language classes

{slider title="What is hybrid learning about?" class="blue solid color_content"}

Hybrid learning is a combination of face-to-face and online learning. While a number of learners attend face-to-face sessions at Brasshouse Languages or one of our centres every week, other learners simultaneously attend the session online from home.{/slider}

{slider title="Why have you decided to run hybrid sessions?" class="blue solid color_content"}

Hybrid sessions give our learners the choice of attending our language classes either online or face-to-face. This method of delivery will allow people with underlying health conditions or those in more vulnerable groups to join classes virtually, while allowing us to create a safe classroom-based learning environment for those who prefer a face-to-face learning experience.{/slider}

{slider title="How are hybrid sessions safe?" class="blue solid color_content"}

By having part of the class learning in the classroom and another part following the session live from home, we can make sure learners in the classroom have enough space to sit 2 metres away from each other.{/slider}

{slider title="How will it be decided whether a class becomes a hybrid class?" class="blue solid color_content"}

All classes in September are online by default. However, some classes might switch to hybrid during the term. Decisions on the type of learning will be made in accordance with the tutor and learners for each individual class. However, a switch to hybrid sessions can only happen if at least half of the group opt for face-to-face learning.{/sliders}
