Due to the sharp increase in the number of COVID-19 infections, the school has decided, after carefull consultation with the board, that we will continue Zoom online for all lessons in the spring semester February - June 2022.

Over the past two years, our online tutors have worked well together. Our team of teachers is highly skilled in the use of ICT. Parents and students have also given a lot of positive feedback.
The online class gives parents more control over their children's learning process. There is more interaction between the parents and the student. The student participates more actively in class and homework. Moreover, the travel time and the weather no longer play a role. Using study materials available online, including audio, video, text typing and pronunciation recording, the learner can practice the language even more efficiently.

The online lessons are given on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM, the lesson time is 45-45-30 minutes, there are two 15-minute breaks between those blocks.
