The key to your success: your online tutor

A distance programme is only effective when it is a tutor-guided programme.

Who is your tutor?

Each type of course is guided by a native professor specializing in the corresponding area and subjects.

The methods used are varied and adapted to your personal interests and needs and the specific requirements of each programme. Although the “AVILA” -  set up in our teaching platform designed by Moodle - is the most comprehensive distance teaching tool at the moment, your tutor will use complementary methods such as  for example

  • Google applications
  • Video conferencing
  • Chat
  • Skype
  • Pod-cast
  • Forums for communication with your tutor and other participants which allow you to debate and exchange ideas, resolving your doubts and problems
  • Off-line methods
  • E-mail
  • Self-assessment and assessment made by your tutor to be aware of your progress
  • ...

  • You need to know what you have to focus your attention on. Thanks to their experience in the field of the DELE examinations your tutor is able to provide you with advice and comprehensive know-how which you will need during the examination. This is an important advantage for you and most beneficial as this information is not given during the examination but affects the rating, the numbers of points which will be given during the correction of your examination papers and determine if you have passed or failed.

Although your tutor is your guide you need to participate actively in order to ensure a real collaboration and consider them as your partner. Please take into account the instructions and recommendations of your tutor. Also, we recommend that you communicate and interact with other students enrolled in the programme – as in a real classroom.
