Unlike conventional online courses, eLycée’s classes are fully interactive. This means that the students and teachers in our classes can see each other, talk to each other and work together in real time. It's like being a real classroom, with the added bonus of a range of tools and applications that you won't find in a traditional classroom such as eMédiathèque - our interactive workspace - unique to eLycée.
Middle School and High School students can sign up for a month, a term, or a full year, but the majority of our students complete a full year's course. Each course spans a two year curriculum. College students and adults can purchase weekly workshops sessions. Private lessons can also be purchased and private students are able to set their own schedule. More information.More information.
We have an online language evaluation - The eLycée Challenge. For prospective students, we follow this with an interview with a teacher in the online classroom. After this evaluation, the studentwill be placed in a class with students of a similar age and level.
All of our classes take place after school - or on the weekend - to accommodate our students' busy schedules. It is not always possible for students to choose their own schedule, but we try to be as flexible as possible. We try to offer more than one weekly time slot per class to make sure we accommodate everyone.
You need a recent PC (running Windows XP/Vista) or Mac, a high-speed Internet connection, a headset with built-in microphone, and a webcam.
We have a full-time technical team who will help you download and install eMédiathèque; they are also available should you run into technical problems before, during or after class.
