Learning a language online, how does that work at In’to?
All our group courses can be taken online!
What does that mean?
The courses are taught entirely online using the Virtual Classroom in Brightspace.
How does the Virtual Classroom work?
In a Virtual Classroom, just like in a real meeting, you can discuss theory, share knowledge and experiences, do exercises, give and receive feedback and experiment with other forms of learning. Learning a language in the Virtual Classroom is similar to taking a regular class, but of course some things will be different. It may take some getting used to the technology and some of the assignments and working methods will be slightly different.
What to expect?
- Personal attention from an expert teacher
This is central to all our courses. Our teachers and trainers are all experts in online teaching. They are flexible and think along with you. Together you work on answering your questions and achieving your learning goals.
- Group lessons on fixed dates and times
You will receive group lessons on fixed dates and times in the Virtual Classroom.
- Slides or whiteboard
In the Virtual Classroom, you see your teacher and the slides or a whiteboard, just like in a real classroom.
- Interaction with teacher and fellow students
In addition to explanations and instructions, classes consist of interaction with the teacher and your fellow students. You can talk to each other using video chat, use the chat box and ask questions.
- Working together in small groups
In addition, you can work together in smaller groups in separate virtual ‘rooms’.
- Interactive methods and online assignments

Each week, the homework and teaching materials are made available for you in the online learning environment.
What will you need?

The Virtual Classroom works best using Google Chrome, so make sure you install that browser on your computer.
