Coronavirus influenced update
Short update – 18 April 2020 All Classes have successfully moved online.
End of Term 1:
We have successfully finished the last 2 – 3 weeks with all our courses online. To the delight of teachers and students alike they all went very well except for some minor internet glitches.
Term Break intensive classes all online.
Grammar and conversation classes on the 6,7,8,9 April from 6pm-8pm during the term break will be online.
Term 2, all classes will be running online.
We will be running all classes, online until the situation improves. In order to confirm and plan the classes, and to give a definite commitment to our teachers, we would like to ask you to PLEASE confirm that you will be attending term 2 or not. Either way, it will be very helpful for us to know.
We have an early bird discount of $315.00 until the 6th of April. The discount is available for everyone who pays via credit card or direct bank transfer. Our bank details are below.
We have been running private online classes very successfully for many years. It is an extremely effective learning experience, as we type the corrected version of what you say which means you get to read the minutes of the class afterwards and you also have the possibility to record it. A very intensive way of learning. Might be just the right form of diversion for those going into isolation! Lots of homework and a steep learning curve guaranteed!
We will be running “Zoom appetizers” for those who have never tried it – 30 minutes for $30 in case you want to add this format or move to it exclusively.
We are encouraged by the number of students already committing to Term 2 classes. Thank you so much for your understanding and solidarity. It is a very difficult time for everyone. I have been running the school for 30 years with wonderful teachers and students and we will be doing all in our power to ensure our special language community stays alive.
Please stay healthy and we hope to see you all again soon, whether either online or in person.
We might even be running the Stammtisch classes online. Watch this space.
