Opted for the online lessons but having difficulties? Don't panic! Have a look at the following steps:

Bad connection

Connection problems can be related to your connection or that of the person you are in a lesson with.
We suggest checking the speed of your connection. If you have a bad wifi connection, we recommend that you:

  • 1.Switch to an ethernet cable if you are on a computer.

  • 2. Use 4G/5G mobile data .

  • Browser problems

    Access to the camera is possible from different browsers. However, there may be compatibility issues with Google Chrome on certain versions of Windows. If this is your case, we recommend using Mozilla Firefox.
