Online course additional information
Whether you study in-class or online, your experience of the course will be the same. The Facilitator delivers the training live, using the Zoom platform, instead of physically being in class. You will interact with your peers and have an engaging and enjoyable learning journey while improving your Business English skills and expanding your vocabulary.
To participate online, you will need the following. For more information you can download our Online Training Guide.
a laptop or a desktop computer (handheld devices lack certain functionalities so are unsuitable)
a broadband speed wired Internet connection
earphones or a headset
a microphone (standalone or built into the earphones or headset)
Zoom (it is free and will be downloaded onto your computer as soon as you click on the link you will receive from us)
Once you are online, you, your Trainer and your co-Trainees will be able to hear and see each other as well as use the chat function. Your Trainer will be able to share her screen, write on a whiteboard and put you into online groups for collaborative work.
Your Facilitator is fully trained to deliver Oral Business English both face-to-face and virtually. You will receive help and support throughout the course whichever delivery mode you choose, so registering for an in-class or online course just depends on your personal preferences and circumstances.
What is certain is that improving your English oral skills has never been easier.
