Online and Distance Learning

This program has been developed to enable students to learn English outside the traditional classroom. If you have access to a telephone or a computer and the internet you will be able to participate in the AMEP Online Learning program.

The benefits of the AMEP Online Learning program are:

  • Learn at your own pace
  • Study from home or
  • other convenient location
  • One-to-one teaching

You can choose to do some or all of your 510 AMEP hours at home with AMEP Online Learning. You will use 5 AMEP hours per week.

Once you are enrolled in the program, you will have lessons every week for one hour with your teacher. You will work one-to-one with a teacher online via Skype or over the telephone. You can work how and when you want on weekly lessons downloaded from the internet or sent to you by mail.

Online Learning offers you:

  • One-to-one teaching
