Frequently asked questions (FAQ) and answers about our online language courses
The online language courses at Learn and Speak in Leipzig have a lot to offer. Below, we have put together a few important questions and answers.
What are online language courses?
Online language courses are an equivalent alternative to on-site language courses, where you learn a language with a PC, laptop, or tablet via the internet. Since there is no travel time involved, you will enjoy more flexibility in scheduling your lessons, both in terms of time and finding an ideal learning environment.
In Learn and Speak’s online classroom, you will enjoy live, real-time instruction, which will allow you to communicate directly with your language trainer. Lessons are recorded (only with the consent of every participant) and are available to you online at any time, along with the learning materials. Paperback books will also be provided for even greater convenience and ease of use.
How good are online language courses?
They are just as good as in-person courses in terms of learning effectiveness. Obviously, just as in on-site courses, this depends on your own level of commitment to learning, both in the classroom and in your daily life. You will learn more quickly if you are active and assertively participating in the lessons.Furthermore, you can increase your level of confidence and comfort with the language by practicing it a little bit every day.
Our live training sessions, combined with the physical and digital practice materials we provide, will help you to get the most out of your language-learning journey.
