How is it going to work?
Your child will meet and work with their teacher and other students (10 students maximum) on Microsoft Teams, a very useful platform supporting video calls, texting, chats, working from the same materials / documents and even in the same documents together in real time. You will need to download and access MS Teams from a PC, laptop, tablet or smart phone (a laptop or PC is recommended for a better class experience).
You and your child will receive a personal email address and a link to join the first class – Your teacher will ensure that all the children get many opportunities to participate in the class!
Will my PC / laptop/ tablet / smart phone work fine in Microsoft Teams?

What skills will my child be able to improve?
Definitely listening and speaking, vocabulary. Our course has been designed to be very interactive and visual. Students will learn about our local area through videos and will be encouraged to work together with their peers online. Students will take part in games, quizzes and many interesting communicative activities. The teacher will guide the course and make sure that all the children are given enough time to speak and participate.
How is it going to make my child feel?
