How Virtual Classrooms Work

Our virtual classrooms are hosted using an online platform which replicates the face-to-face environment. This allows teachers and students to interact and enjoy a classroom environment in an online setting. The courses follow the communicative approach, focusing on developing speaking and communications skills and cover vocabulary activities and grammar points on the ‘white board’, to reading task via file sharing and listening exercises.

When you receive your course confirmation (one week before the course start date), you will also receive login details to MyCactus. This is the Cactus course online platform where you can check your course information, schedule, course content, homework and also send your tutor a private message.
