Students and teachers talking about their experiences at CBE

Online courses Dutch and English

In light of the recent Coronavirus situation, we will be offering courses online for the coming season.These are unprecedented times and due to the uncertainty of when we can return to a more communal way of living, we would like to offer our learners the opportunity to continue their language learning, while remaining social.

CBE has always been a place where people meet and build friendships and we want to continue that tradition – even if we all have to stay in our homes. After some discussions with our teachers and carrying out research, we have decided to provide online lessons using the platform, Zoom. Zoom is a popular choice amongst educators as it provides good quality audio as well as many useful functions to help teachers provide the best online experience possible.
You can access Zoom using a phone or tablet, but we suggest using a laptop, as it has a larger screen, to get the most out of the lesson. You will need a camera, audio, and stable internet connection in order to join a course.

Our online courses guarantee...

In order to provide the most effective learning experience for you, we can already guarantee that our courses:

  • small groups (approx 8 participants max.)
  • will include a dedicated dropbox folder which will be updated after each lesson with worksheets, lesson notes, and any material required for the next lesson.
  • will provide clear instructions of what to do, how to log in and what you are expected to do.
  • will have a dedicated helpline for students who are struggling with the software or experience any online learning issues.

New online courses Dutch and English will be available from 20 April

We will be adapting the structure of the lessons to suit online learning, but you will still receive the same amount of content and the goals remain the same.
