How does it work?

Learn French or German from your own home through online platforms including Zoom and Discord. Interact in real-time with your teacher.


Take a comprehensive language test online before you begin your course so we can put you in the right level. Take the test again when you may be ready to move up a level, so you can see how much progress you're making.


Teachers also use Discord for speaking practice, and sharing a topic for discussion.


Receive live feedback from your teacher through the secure Zoom platform.


Our student support team is always here to help — even online. We provide assistance throughout your course to make sure your experience is as enjoyable as possible.
