Frequently Asked Questions

What are GV LIVE classes?

GV LIVE classes are live interactive virtual education provided through the online learning platform, Zoom. Classes are taught in real time by GV Instructors. Students can connect to LIVE classes from their desktop computer or mobile device, as long as they have an internet connection. GV LIVE classes happen on a set schedule, and students are given information to join their specific classes.

What is GV ONLINE Study?

GV ONLINE study is a blended learning tool which is sometimes used as part of our classes, but may also be used as an additional resource for students who want to enhance their language learning with practice activities and exercises that they can complete at their own pace. GV ONLINE is available 24/7.

Who teaches GV LIVE Classes

GV LIVE Classes are taught by GV's experienced and passionate teachers - the same great people who have been teaching in our real-life classrooms!

Are GV LIVE classes interactive? How do students participate?

Our GV LIVE classes are totally interactive. Students can ask and answer questions either by speaking directly, or using the chat window. In addition, Zoom provides a feature that allows teachers to assign students to “breakout rooms” for smaller group work. Students can interact together in their breakout room and the teacher can drop in any time to see how things are going before bringing the whole class back together to continue discussions and learning.

How many students are in a class?

Our GV LIVE online classes have a maximum student number of 12 in Hawaii, and 16 in Calgary, Vancouver, and Victoria; however, class sizes may vary depending on the particular class.

What is the class schedule?

In our GV LIVE classes, one lesson is 50 minutes long, the same length as in our face-to-face classes. GV LIVE Classes are available in a variety of weekly time-tables, providing 5, 7, 8, 10, 15, 16, 20, 25, or 30 lessons per week. 

How do students submit homework?

Students may be asked either to email homework to their instructor, or to submit their homework through the chat feature in Zoom. Homework will typically be reviewed together as a class.

Do GV LIVE classes include weekly quizzes?

Yes, students will still complete weekly quizzes (e.g. competency checks), just like in our face-to-face classes. Quizzes are managed directly through Zoom during the class time.

Do I need to use the video function to join my GV LIVE classes?

In GV LIVE classes, our teachers create a friendly classroom atmosphere where students can relax, share personal stories, and make friends from around the world. When you study in a virtual classroom, the video function is an important part of connecting with your classmates and creating rapport. It helps create an experience that’s similar to GV’s real life classroom experience. For the best GV LIVE class experience for you and your classmates, we strongly encourage using video.

For the best experience, how should I connect to GV LIVE classes?

While students can connect from any internet-connected location, on any device, students will have the best experience if they connect using a desktop or laptop computer with a strong and stable internet connection. For classes that focus on speaking, students may feel comfortable using their mobile phone. However, for classes that may require some writing, it will be easier to participate if students have a keyboard available.

I feel like the distance between my friends and I, or my teachers and myself is very close when we are in the online class. We can talk to each other any time; we can ask any questions to my teachers, any time. So that’s why I think I can speak a lot as if I’m in a face-to-face class.
