HOW DO FLEXI CLASSES WORK?

Flexi Classes are a completely new way of studying Chinese online.

They are small group classes taught by professional teachers that follow your schedule.

You can book a Flexi Class whenever you are free, you can cancel it when your schedule changes, you can study as many or few of them as you like and they are all real interactive classes taught by a professional Chinese instructor.

Groups are very small, with an average of three students and guaranteed never more than six.

All teachers are experienced Chinese language instructors. No videos, no talking to computers, no Apps or computer games, only live group classes taught online by real teachers, with complete flexibility to book, cancel and study when, where and however you want to.

Sounds impossible? Until very recently, it was, now it is no more.

WHY FLEXI CLASSES ARE AMAZING

Learning a language online is one of the best ways to master Mandarin in this day and age.

However, scheduling, teacher availability and lack of human interaction has been a big challenge that often lead to students not achieving Mandarin fluency online.

Before Flexi Classes there were three main ways to study Chinese online.

1) Videos & Apps: Completely time flexible and at a low cost, but with no human interaction or real live teachers.
2) 1-on-1 online classes: Some time flexibility, but no class mates and either non professional teachers or high costs.
3) Fixed time group classes: Low costs and class mates, but no time flexibility or ability to cancel classes.

Flexi Classes combine all the advantages of the three above. They are small group classes, taught by professional teachers at a very attractive price point, but with amazing time flexibility.

You can study when and wherever you want and book or cancel classes with just one click.

You study in a small group class taught by a real live teacher, get to speak and practice during class, ask questions, talk to your classmates and achieve fluency quickly.

HOW IT WORKS

Sign up to the Flexi Class and choose your monthly subscription.

Do not worry, in case you want to study less or more later, you can cancel or change your subscription at any time.

The process takes three steps and less than 3 minutes.

Once you are in, go to the class booking section and book classes in your level when you are free. You will be recommended suitable classes for you, but can also choose any according to your preferences.

There are group classes offered 24/7 so you can study at any time of the day or night.

When it is time for your class, click “Join Class” under “My Classes” and you will join the Zoom classroom with your teacher and classmates.

You can follow your progress under “My Level”, check your past and future classes and download teaching materials under “My Classes”.

And that’s it.

It usually takes about 5-10 minutes to get familiar with the system and after that it is very simple to use. If you have any questions, you can contact us under “Help” at any time.

INDIVIDUAL CLASSES

It is also possible to book 1-on-1 classes through the Flexi Class system at any time of the day or night.

All you need to do is book them at least 48h in advance and your teacher will be ready for you. It takes no more than two clicks.

You can study a tailor-made class where you decide what you want to learn or follow the LTL curriculum and study one of the provided topics.

FLEXI CLASS PRICES

Flexi Classes are a flexible subscription model. You can subscribe to any of the packages below depending on how many hours per week you want to study.

From just one lesson per week to a class every day this is all up to you. After you signed up you will immediately have your credits ready in your account and can start booking classes straight away. 

As always with Flexi Classes this can be at any time of the day 24/7.
