What is Hangouts?
It is like a video call lesson - We use a two-way document, in other words, both student and teacher can type in real time on the same document. It's similar to Skype, but more educator friendly.
Watch this video for a better understanding:
R300.00 per 30min hangout session.
If a student cancels less than 3hours before the scheduled lesson, the lesson will still be charged for.

Some Questions answered:
How Google Hangouts work:
How many times a week does the student ‘attend’ a class?
The Hangout sessions can be scheduled on a weekly / monthly basis and are also dependent on everyone's schedule and availability.
How does a student interact with the teacher – is it ever a ‘live’ lesson?
The hangouts are live yes, but the online work that we schedule we can communicate via email. We usually respond to queries within a day or two, if we did not see the student for a live hangout session in the meantime.
How is the course work presented/given to the student and how are assignments submitted for marking – all online and if so how would his conversational/speaking/pronunciation be assessed?
It is all stored, shared and submitted via Google Drive. We also mark and submit back on the document itself. Verbal communication skills are tested within the scheduled content where assigned and student can record their speech/presentation and send via email, WhatsApp, Drive, etc.
Are there any other textbooks/workbooks needed or is your course all inclusive?
We add literary work which we will only start in the higher levels.
How does a parent receive feedback on the child’s progress?
Parents can join as guardians on the relevant Google Classroom or alternatively we make use of a parent's Gmail account instead of a child's Gmail account. This enables both student and parent to be fully part of the journey.
