Technical requirements

English Online offers a world-class learning experience

To access your student portal and live online classes, you will need:

  • a desktop or laptop computer
  • a reliable Internet connection
  • a headset or headphones with a built-in microphone
  • a speaker and a webcam.

Please note:

English Online classes take place using the free and secure Zoom application. Please make sure to download Zoom to your device before your class begins.

To ensure all students enjoy a positive learning experience, we recommend students join live classes from a desktop device, not a mobile or tablet.

The English Online platform is not accessible using Internet Explorer browsers, so we recommend you use other internet browser applications (e.g. Google Chrome or Firefox).
