Description

Here is how a Tutored Course works:

The first week of the course, you receive instructions on how to access your online sessions (self-administered asynchronous sessions).


Each week of the course you will have a session to complete, with a self-administered activity or lesson. You will receive an email each Monday to remind you to access your session.

Every other week - starting from week 1 - you will have an assignment to complete and post in the Class Forum for the Prof. The Prof will carefully review the assignment, correct it and give suggestions to the student. The Prof will post corrections and feedback in the Class Forum and in the student's Progress Report page.

 

correzione
A CyberItalian teacher corrects the students' assignment.
The student reads the corrections (asynchronous sessions).

 

Every other week - starting from week 2 - you will have the real-time audio-video classes on Skype.
During the audio-video classes students meet with a CyberItalian teacher in a Skype session with co-browsing, so the teacher can show the educational material to students. In the beginner level, students pronounce Italian words or sentences and reply to simple questions, according to the model presented by the teacher. In the other levels, the conversation includes the topics presented in the sessions or other topics related to the students' language level.
Students can ask questions or discuss various subjects. Some of the subjects are proposed by the Prof and others spring up spontaneously during the class. CyberItalian teachers are professional teachers, so they conduct each class taking into account the needs of the students.

 

The audio-video classes are optional (if you miss a class, this will not affect your course), but you can participate in all audio-video group classes of your level (e.g. beginner classes are yellow in the Calendar), unless the teacher recommends otherwise (the teacher could ask a student to change level if they need to reinforce their comprehension and speaking skills, if they need to be in a faster paced class or other reasons).

 

The audio/video classes are 50 minutes long, click here for schedule

Please note, the Calendar reports your local time in 24 hours (provided that your computer is set on your local time). For example, there are two beginner classes on Saturday, one at 13 (1 pm) and the other at 16 (4 pm) Italian time. If you need to calculate the time in your zone click here.


To participate in the audio-video classes, please see technical requirements here.

 

Audio/Video Class
Students meet the CyberItalian teacher at the scheduled time
in the audio-video group class (synchronous sessions - in real time).

 

In the Class Forum, students post assignments, questions, receive answers and corrections, and interact with the teacher. The Class Forum is accessible anytime.

 

Each student sees her/his personalized feedback from the teacher in her/his Progress Report.


Please remember that for any doubt or question during the course, you will be able to contact a teacher via Ask-the-Prof service. A real professional teacher will reply via email to your message, so you will never feel alone during your study.

 

With CyberItalian, Italy is just "a click of the mouse" away!
