Frequently Asked Questions
Are the teachers qualified?
The teachers at Albert Learning are highly qualified and experts in the field of teaching languages. We have trained them to make sessions interactive for the best results.
Are applications like Google Meet, Skype or Appear effective for learning languages?
We prefer using Google Meet to conduct our lessons, instead of Skype and Appear. Though all 3 are effective, of late, many students and teachers have experienced problems when using Skype like, call disruption, poor video or call quality, issues with screen sharing. Google Meet takes care of all these and provides seamless streaming during sessions. Finally, all 3 can be easily accessed on a computer or mobile device, by downloading their respective apps.
