Language courses - online session

When we were forced last year to interrupt our March-April classes shortly after they had begun, we then quickly made the decision to transfer our classes to online, to give our students an opportunity to stay engaged and to complete the session.

We were pleased to find that in the online setting, the students' learning outcomes were still as high as ever, and that these online classes did help to break isolation and build community, despite social distancing.

Very encouraged by the success of this first experience, we've since then already completed six more sessions completely online, and we are continuing to offer our classes online until the situation allows us to decide otherwise.

Online course details

  • 10 students maximum per class

  • 2.5 hour course, with at least one break

  • Use of the Zoom platform - all the information you need to get started will be communicated to you

Technical requirements for using Zoom

  • The use of a computer is strongly recommended. If you don't have one, you can use a tablet or cell phone, but this is not recommended as these can present technical challenges.

  • You will need a high-speed internet connection, a camera and a microphone (if you use a laptop, the camera and microphone are normally integrated).

  • You must have a web browser (Chrome recommended). You can also use firefox, but avoid using Internet Explorer.

 
For the session beginning July 5th:

Please note: For the session that just started on May 10, registration is still open for  Spanish and Portuguese classes.

Registration is now closed for the French and English courses.  We will soon publish the registration dates for the next session.
