How do you know my level in the language?
Once the reservation has been made, you will have the right to 20 minutes completely free of charge with your teacher for a first meeting and a diagnosis of your skills. At the same time you will be able to communicate your objectives, interests, tastes and preferences to your teacher. Your teacher will create a student profile thanks to all this key information and will create a specific study plan that will allow you to increase your level in relation to the European Framework of Reference (ECFR) and above all that will allow you to achieve your objectives.

Do I need a webcam?
Seeing your teacher is very helpful and provides some closeness to the teacher and important visual support, however it is not mandatory. The most important thing is to have a good audio configuration, in order to obtain a clean and clear sound.Back to Index

1. Video call program
There are different options to make a video conference: SKYPE, WHATSAPP, GOOGLE HAGSOUT and ZOOM are some of them, and you can choose the one you prefer. (all these platforms are free to use).

What is a video conferencing course about?
A video conferencing course is a private distance learning course with an instructor.
It is a practical and pedagogically optimal solution. The student and the teacher can see each other, write and speak in a synchronized way as in a traditional class but with advantages such as: doing it from the comfort of your home or office, at the hours of your preference and with the teacher focused on you, your learning and your goals.
Never studied by video conference and prefer the traditional classes?
Many times it is difficult to change. But don’t worry, we go at your pace. Live a different educational experience and you won’t regret it. Learning by video-conferencing is easy and fast. You don’t have to travel, or spend money on books or registrations. Only with a computer and internet will you be able to access a private, personalized and videoconferencing training.
