Welcome to Online Lingo Courses!
Here you can search for courses by Language, Level, and Type. We offer multiple languages at Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels. There are Private and Group sessions you can take. Sessions are offered either at 30-minute (A) or 60-minute lengths (B). For instance, Arabic Beginner (A) is a 30-minute beginner-level Arabic group session. You will know a course is a private (i.e. one-on-one) course if you see Private in the course title.
All our language courses are focused on helping our learners to be better at communicating in the target language. In each session, your instructor will be using our online classroom environment to help you understand the contexts for communication and to help you connect what you learn to apply to a useful context for practice.
You will have the chance to use all 4 skills (i.e. listening, speaking, reading, and writing) in your course. There is additional writing practice our Community Forums that you can participate in, as well as through writing emails to your instructor. We promise you will have a lot of fun in your sessions and be even more motivated to want to practice using the language at any given chance.
All sessions can be recorded (audio only) with notes to be shared with each class member immediately after each session. This helps you with your revision after each session.
If you feel more comfortable working directly with your instructor, a Private Class is probably better for you. Having an instructor all to yourself allows you to schedule directly with your instructor for class time. It also allows your instructor to work with you on materials and topics that are of utmost importance and interest to you. Private classes will not have any timeslots displayed. Once purchased, our Course Manager will contact you to discuss your scheduling needs and match you with an instructor that has a compatible schedule. All private classes have a 24-hour cancellation policy. Any sessions canceled with less than 24-hour notice to your instructor or the Course Manager will not be rescheduled.
Sessions not started within a month after signup will be forfeited. Once started, all sessions purchased shall be completed within 3 months from the start date (i.e. first session).
Your Private class can also be recorded (audio only) with your permission. Your instructor will also send you a customized session report after each session.
If you are someone who enjoys talking to other people in the class, then you might want to select a Group Class. However, bear in mind that each group class will have up to 4 people in it, so while you still have a chance to practice speaking in the class, it will not be as much as when you are working directly with your instructor in a Private Class. These are all factors you need to consider when selecting between a Private or a Group class.
All group classes will start as long as there are 4 registered learners max. Each class will start the first and/or the third week of each month. After paying, you will be able to select from the displayed 3 timeslots for your course. Pick the time that works best for you in your time zone. No make-up classes are available for group classes missed. Please do your best to attend each session.
All sessions can be recorded (audio only) with notes to be shared with each class member immediately after each session. This has been proven to helps learners in their retention of class material covered, and is useful in each learner’s learning process.
