About the Courses:
Q 7. How are 1-to-1 live courses different from pre-recorded courses?
ST: 1-to-1 Live Courses are active learning, while pre-recorded passive. In 1-to-1 Live Courses, you will interact with the Shawa-Mentor live. That enhances the learning experience of the student. The course delivery, discussions in the class (with the Mentor), exercises, tests and feedback are highly personalised, all real-time and active (pre-recorded courses lack these features).
Q 8. What level are the 1-to-1 Language Courses are? I mean, in terms of Basic, intermediary or Advance level of the courses.
ST: The beauty of 1-to-1 Courses is that we can personalise them as per your comfort and skill level. The course will evolve on a session-by-session basis and the mentor will work with you into designing the most optimum and effective course for you. Although, we provide a fundamental theme-based structure of the course depending upon your booking plan and its duration.
Q 9. How effective are 1-to-1 Courses as compared to Pre-recorded ones?
ST: We found 1-to-1 Courses very effective as compared to Pre-recorded Courses. We employee 5 Fold Tools for effective and fun learning. The students are personally mentored one-at-a-time to help them acquire real skills in the language/ field that they wish to champion. The mentors (not teachers/instructors) actively manage the content, delivery, management and progression of the courses in tune with the degree of comfort and skill of the students, with an active, in-person and engaged validation and feedback process that keeps the students motivated and on track.
Q 10. What do I need to attend a live-course at Shawatales?
ST: You will need a good/decent internet connection. A decent laptop/mobile phone. Zoom Application installed on your devices (we use Zoom for our online courses). And, a curious mind, a board smile!
Q 11. Do you provide pre-recorded courses?
ST: Sure, we plan to.
