OUR Student E-Learning Portal
August 24, 2020: BahnhofPH Language Training Center is proud to announce that there is a recent development on our online learning services. Due to the current world crisis, the management of BahnhofPH did not cease to just settle for an online classroom. We have developed a more powerful tool to efficiently deliver our courses online. Aside from our online classroom, which allow the students to interact with their teacher face-to-face through video conferencing, the students will now have access to web-based learning.
BahnhofPH introduces our “Student E-Learning Portal”. Our E-Learning is utilizing electronic technologies to allow our students to have access to their courses outside of the traditional face-to-face classroom or video conference at their convenience. Students can now learn and practice more what was discussed in their classroom. They will also have a chance to leave messages to their teachers regarding topics/ lessons which needs further explanation. On the other hand, the teacher will have the chance to provide additional inputs/ lessons, measure the learnings through examinations or quizzes and record the progress of his/her students through the e-learning portal. Our E-learning will enable our teachers to tap into this realm of constant learning through multimedia, video, chat, and interactivity.
BahnhofPH believes that through the combination of face-to-face online classroom and the Student E-Learning Portal, learning German will never be too hard!
