You will be awarded an official City, University of London certificate on completion of the course if you attend over 70 per cent of the classes. The course is not formally accredited.
You won’t need to sit an exam at the end of the course, but you will be required to complete around two hours of homework each week.
Teaching is tailored to your needs. As you progress through the course you’ll work with your tutor to identify areas of weakness and find ways to improve them.
You’ll gain skills to become a successful independent learner and you must commit to home study to get the most from the course. The weekly class is your opportunity to check in with your tutor and show what you’ve learnt. You’ll write a simple essay each week and read it out in class, sharing your learning with the group for everyone to benefit.
Outside of lessons you’ll be working online with your classmates, exchanging tips and information about the language and culture.
