What will happen if there is another lock-down?

If we need to close the teaching centre in line with government guidelines, we guarantee that classes will continue online. Online classes will include the same number of hours as face-to-face classes.

 They will be with the same teacher, same classmates and at the same time.

How do virtual classrooms work?

Adults courses

Virtual classes are conducted through a videoconferencing tool which will allow you to practise your speaking and writing with your teacher and classmates in real time and do pair and group work, just as you would in a face-to-face lesson.

We will provide instructions on how to access this tool via email instructions before your first lesson.

Childrens' courses

These virtual classrooms include live lessons with the teacher and self-study activities to be completed online before and after each live lesson.

We will be providing details on the secure, online learning platform via email to keep children safe while they are online.

Do you offer online courses for your learners?

Yes, we have an online offer for individual classes with EnglishScore Tutors and collective classes with English Online.
