STAGES OF YOUR TRAINING PROGRAM
1. Enrolling in the online Webpass™program
On the www.tellmemorewebpass.com site, you enter your “Webpass™” license number, which you received by e-mail, and your personal information (choice of the target language, profile, user names, etc.).
2. Enrolling in “Live Tutor™“ private classes
Connect to your Webpass™ account.
Ask to add private classes and enter the “class card” license number, which you received by e-mail. Give your Skype® nickname
3. Schedule your private classes with the Live Tutor™
Starting 2 business days after your enrollment in Live Tutor™ services, and as far in advance as 3 months, you can schedule your classes for any time during the validity of your Webpass™ membership.
To do it, just access the class topics site from your Webpass™ site and select those that interest you.
On the class scheduling page, choose your instructor and check his/her schedule. Choose the topics and reserve your sessions with a simple click. You may change instructors from one session to another or keep the same one, as you like.
You can cancel or reschedule your class any time up to 24 hours in advance of the scheduled class.
4. Your private classes
On the day and time agreed on, the instructor calls you via skype® using the nickname you gave during enrollment.
You will prepare for the class for at least 5 minutes with the material supplied.
You can, of course, record the classes with the “Skype call recorder” software, that you install yourself.
The class is centered on the topic and explores concepts encountered through various interactive exercises with the instructor, such as role-playing. The object is to encourage you to express yourself as much as possible in the target language. A few minutes before the end of the 25 minutes of the SKYPE conversation, the instructor reviews with you what has been covered during your class and suggests points on which further attention is needed.
If you have an instructor who also speaks your native language and if you are a beginner, you can alternate between your native language and the target language.
5. Extending your training
If you wish, you may extend your Webpass™ + Live Tutor™ membership for a new period of 1, 3, 6 or 12 months + the number of private classes corresponding to each plan. You may also choose to subscribe just to Live Tutor™ private classes or only to Webpass™. If you extend your Webpass™ subscription, you keep your account and your training data.
