QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

What will happen after I purchase my Bilingual Bridges' package?

Once you purchase a class package through our website, we’ll personally contact you with a welcome email, student goals survey, tutoring contract, and student account login details. We’ll answer any questions you may have and match you with a teacher who will best fit your learning style, goals, and availability.

Do I have to purchase a minimum number of Bilingual Bridges classes?

Not for individual classes. Feel free to select the quantity of classes that will work best for your schedule and budget. For group courses, all classes must be paid one month in advance.

Do I need to purchase any Bilingual Bridges class materials?

No, you don’t. We use a wide variety of materials, including: online, subscription based, or authentically created (personalized just for you!). All materials used in your classes will be shared for you to utilize independently while studying between classes.

My schedule is pretty hectic and changes every week. Can I still take Bilingual Bridges' classes?

Absolutely. Our teachers offer flexible scheduling and we can create teaching teams for students whose schedules require a great deal of flexibility (more than one person alone can accommodate). Regardless, we will always suggest that you remain consistent with your classes and complete homework assignments in between in order to progress well in your language studies.

Can I choose my own teacher?

We will certainly take your teacher preferences into account when matching you! If we have more than one match, we will tell you a bit about each so you can have the final say.

What can I expect my first Bilingual Bridges' class to be like?

Every teacher has a different teaching style; however, your first class will likely incorporate a variety of introductory activities so that you and your teacher can get to know each other. Keep in mind that your teacher will be assessing you throughout every lesson (including your first!), as this information will help to inform the content of your future lessons.

Will my teacher give me homework?

Each teacher has his/her unique style of teaching; however, homework is always encouraged. You will work alongside your teacher to decide how much time you’ll realistically be able to commit to doing homework between classes. Also, you will have the opportunity to express your preferences regarding the types of homework assignments that are assigned.

How does the Bilingual Bridges online classroom work?

Our students and teachers alike love our classroom! We use Zoom as our classroom platform—it’s seamless to navigate. You’ll do a quick download of the Zoom software on your computer, tablet, or smartphone and be ready to go. Our classroom features HD audio and video, class recording, co-annotation tools, interactive whiteboard, and more. Trust us, you’ll love it, too!

How long does it take to learn a language?

The length of time to learn a language depends on a variety of factors, including: if you already speak more than one language; age; motivation; personality; level of exposure to the target language; amount of time dedicated to consistently practicing; and affinity to learning languages.
