Our Virtual BCU LearnSpot – now online for all language learners & enthusiasts!
Starting on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at 5 p.m. (and then weekly thereafter) join us in the Virtual BCU LearnSpot Classroom with Jitsi Meet!
What exactly can you expect?
- You will receive a link for Jitsi Meet (no login/account needed!) with which you can enter the Virtual BCU LearnSpot classroom at the specified time.
- There you will meet other language learners and enthusiasts, as well as a professional trainer who will be present during the whole meeting to help facilitate the conversations.
- The Virtual BCU LearnSpot will start with “Small Talk” so everyone can get to know each other a bit. Then, the trainer will present some input: e.g. videos, pictures or short texts dealing with various everyday topics (such as food & drink, family, travel, leisure activities etc.) which the participants will get to explain and discuss with each other.
- At the conclusion of the Virtual BCU LearnSpot, the participants will get some “serious” homework based on the topic discussed. By completing the homework, participants can improve both vocabulary & grammar, in addition to improving speaking skills.
What does the Virtual BCU LearnSpot cost?
- The good news: It’s free! We want to give you some pleasant & useful activities during these challengingCOVID-19 times. While we are all practicing social distancing, you can still benefit from this free opportunity to improve your language skills and meet new people with similar interests.
- Of course, we hope that we will be able to organize our traditional BCU LearnSpot as an in-person meeting as soon as possible! We have a few new ideas of how to fill the traditional BCU LearnSpot with new engaging contents and other events.
- If you like our Virtual BCU LearnSpot (which we know you will!), you can always continue learning or improving your target language on a regular basis in a BCU-Course (in person or virtually) with one of our fantastic trainers!
- Recommend BCU to your friends and colleagues! That is the best appreciation we could get from you!
Where & when do we meet?

- Starting Wednesday, October 21, 2020, at 5 p.m. till approx. 6 p.m. and after that every Wednesday at the same time. (But we are flexible if most of you prefer a different day or time!)
