FUNCTIONS IN TEACHING

When teaching on Skype you can see and hear your teacher just like in a normal classroom. You can listen to his/her pronunciation, gestures and facial expressions. In the Skype chat at the bottom of the page you can communicate with your teacher in writing. Your teacher can write down difficult words or you can send him/her words or sentences. On Skype you can also send links or attachments, thus you can also exchange documents.

SKYPE REGISTRATION / DOWNLOAD

All you need is a computer with a camera, microphone and speakers. You can also use a headset or headphones from your smartphone. Of course you also need an internet connection. You only need to download Skype once to get started – it’s quick and installs itself. Then you have to choose a username. This will be your Skype phone number, so to speak. And then you can enjoy our unique language lessons.

“Using Skype is child’s play.”
