Collaborative Online Learning

The Collaborative Online Learning Programme is an approach to online language education that puts the student at the heart of the learning process.  Using interactive group and project work, we create a dynamic and authentic learning environment for learners to participate in and to learn together.

Drawing on a task-based learning approach, students work together in a communicative way to achieve task outcomes.  By using English together to achieve a shared goal, learners build confidence with language and social situations. It’s also been shown to be more aligned with how we actually learn a new language - by putting it into action!

Lessons can be taken part time (two days a week) or full time (Monday to Friday), with two different time slots to allow for greater flexibility.
