Thanks to technology follow an online German course is like sitting in front of a teacher in a more traditional class. In fact, we have a virtual blackboard to exchange information and the possibility to communicate via audio and video.
To notice that we are talking about a real live class, with a German native speaker teacher to interact with, to ask explanations, repetitions, clarifications.
What class would be without a blackboard? With the virtual blackboard, we can write and draw like in any normal class.
Of course, there is an audio to follow online live all the explanations of the teacher. Besides the teacher also the students can contribute with questions and audio of any type.
To hear the audio you need a headset, or an earset or a loudspeaker.
The interaction with the student wouldn’t be complete without the possibility to see each other in the face and have in this way an immediate feedback on the course. This is very important to have a class alike atmosphere, so you absolutely need a webcam.
The chat can be used for example to communicate when someone else is talking, for a fast communication between the teacher and the student without interrupting the course.
To avoid misunderstanding, you don’t need to chat in Latin!
All useful documents for clarifications: newspaper articles, copies, exercises. Everything available for immediate download.
Like in a traditional course I can give exercises to the class, a quiz to be looked at immediately in the class with all the needed clarifications. As I said you don’t have to give up anything, it’s like a traditional class.
To watch offline. This is a big advantage of the online course, all lessons are recorded and you can watch them offline, either because you haven’t done to the course or because you want to review some tricky passage.
Never miss anything again!
