How do Skype language lessons work?

  • Skype logoYou need the internet with Skype installed on your computer and a webcam. Skype is an application that is free to download and allows users to communicate by free video calls over the Internet. See the Skype website. We can also use MSN or Yahoo messenger but recommend Skype for higher quality video calls.
  • Pay for lessons in advance by bank transfer or Paypal.
  • Your tutor will email material for your lesson in advance for you to print out or view onscreen during the online lesson.
  • Contact us to arrange your first lesson. Before lessons begin we will informally discuss your current level, your goals and how we can help you to achieve them. We will then select the perfect tutor for you.
