Online language classes

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).
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.
We are running because our recent survey showed that 80% of our learners enjoy online learning.

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.

You need a computer / laptop or a tablet with a stable internet connection. You also need a microphone and loudspeakers.

Hybrid language classes

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.

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.

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.

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.
