Online language courses
Work on your language skills in one or two languages in your own time!
In addition to the regular independent study programme, the Language & Training Centre (LTC) now also offers the online programme Tell Me More, via which you can independently learn a language. This programme enables you to work on your preferred language skills in your own time, without being dependent on course days and times or on the material and opening hours of the LTC. In Tell Me More you may find exercises for all language skills i.e.: the programme offers the option to listen to audio fragments (words and sentences) which you can repeat and record. The programme shows your score and offers the options to practice as often as you want to.
The LTC sells licenses which enables you to learn one or two languages during a year. We can also offer you a headset in order to make full use of the programme.
Tell Me More is available for the following languages:
- Dutch for non-native speakers
- British English
- American English
- Spanish (Spain)
- Spanish (Latin America)
You may choose to learn the languages in daily life context or in a professional context.
Language of instruction (interface)
Instructions and explanation of the programme are available in several languages: Brazilian, Chinese (simple), Chinese (traditional), Dutch, German, English, French, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Slovakian, Spanish, Thai and Turkish.
Tell Me More offers exercises at all levels, for both beginners and advanced students. However the LTC advises absolute beginners to join a face-to-face course as well. Especially at the beginning it is important to receive feedback and help from an experienced teacher (who is a native speaker). Of course Tell Me More can also be helpful in between courses or next to a course.
Content : All skills
The first time you open the Tell Me More application, a test will be started to assess your level. This is an adaptive test: once you have given a correct answer, the programme will offer you a slightly more difficult question. When your answer was incorrect, the next question will be less difficult to answer. A programme with exercises will then be compiled for you based on your test results. However, it is possible to skip the test. The results of your level test merely serve as an indication, and you can change your level and programme whenever you want. The placement test is offered only once per computer.
Once your level has been determined, you can indicate whether you want to focus on professional or everyday language situations. Various themes will then be covered within the chosen context. For example, if you choose a professional situation, you will learn to hold presentations, chair meetings and conduct telephone conversations. In the everyday situation various topics will be covered, such as introducing yourself, booking a holiday and ordering food.
All of the four skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing) will be covered in the exercises.
We do advise you to answer All Skills, when the programme asks you What skills you would like to work on? If you choose this option the complete course and all exercises will be offered to you in the best possible way.
