Regulations: Coronavirus Measures & Information about language courses and school operations at LanguageMasters

Zurich 16.03.2020

 

Dear LanguageMasters clients

 

Due to the Coronavirus, the government decided on 13.03.2020 to close all schools from 16.03.20 until 05.04.2020 and to cancel all public events with more than 50+ people.

As a temporary measure to protect against the Coronavirus, no classroom lessons are being held at the moment. The ban on face-to-face teaching throughout Switzerland imposed by the Federal Government on 13.03.2020 was also confirmed by the Cantonal Government of Zurich.

LanguageMasters has adopted the Federal Government’s regulation and appropriate measures and has applied the appropriate steps to ensure the quality of their teaching.

Our aim is to ensure that the courses for you and the work of our employees are all maintained in this exceptional situation and that learning progress continues.

It is important to us that the lessons are carried out seamlessly and without disruption.

 

On 15.03.2020, the management of LanguageMasters made the following decisions which are valid for everyone with immediate effect:

 

  • FACE-TO-FACE TEACHING

From 16 March 2020 until further notice no face-to-face teaching will take place on LanguageMasters premises. This applies to all language courses: group courses and private lessons.

The current courses will not be cancelled. All new courses will start either online or after the lockout period as agreed.

 

  • ONLINE LEARNING

All courses (group instruction/ private lessons) will continue to be held. Until further notice, lessons will now be held remotely i.e. via the Internet/as online courses using suitable computer software (more information can be obtained directly from the Administration or the teachers).

This will take some time and getting used to and it is the same for every company in Switzerland but we are confident and convinced that the technology and your co-operation will help us to get through this difficult time.

 

  • TELC EXAMS

The TELC exam planned for 04.04.2020 will be postponed and will take place after 5.04.2020 in compliance with the measures recommended by the Health Department (BAG) (such as social distancing, hygiene measures etc). The new exam is expected to be held at the end of April/beginning of May 2020. Further information can be obtained from the LanguageMasters TELC Co-ordinator by e-mail.

 

  • OPENING HOURS

The reception desk at Bleicherweg 27 is open Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm with a minimum of staff for all administrative matters. You can also reach us at any time by phone at 043 534 48 17.

 

We are always up to date and observe the regulations of the Health Department (BAG) as well as the cantonal decisions of Zurich.

LanguageMasters implements all instructions from the Health Department (BAG) and the Canton of Zurich in a very responsible manner. Should the situation change, we reserve the right to take further actions/changes and will inform you immediately. Health is our top priority and we feel that it is also our responsibility to contribute to the protection against and containment of the spread of the Coronavirus.

 

LanguageMasters management would like to thank you for your confidence in our school, your solidarity and your contribution in this very difficult situation. Only together and responsibly can we manage these difficult times!

 

All questions concerning this issue will be dealt with by telephone on 0435344817 or at news@languagemasters.ch.
