The 21st-century comes with a heavy demand for digitalization. Many people turn to apps that will teach them a language for free as part of this demand. Unfortunately, the method employed by these apps are severely out-of-date and are simply not effective for every person, for every situation, and still struggles to have a solid theoretical base.

So, it’s also very possible to request lessons by Skype. Beware, though: lessons by Skype do have a nature all their own. Not sure if it’s for you? We’ve made a list of criteria for you to see if it might work for you:

-in possession of good quality hardware?
-in need of short, weekly boosts?

-on a budget?

If you answered yes to at least 10 of these, then Skype lessons might very well be a good consideration. Visit our contact page and mention that you’re interested in Skype lessons. Just like other lessons, the intake is a special lesson on its own.
Some other things to consider before agreeing to Skype lessons:
x The audio will not be as clear as in person.
x Connection issues can sometimes disrupt the regular flow.
x Lessons are much more intensive than in-person lessons.
x Skype lessons are often best if they’re short but frequent, such as one hour once or twice a week or 30 minutes twice or three times a week.
x Skype lessons work best with a text, such as assigned readings or books, so there will be an additional cost for materials. Luckily, we can work with you to find out the best option for your situation.
