The Polis Institute began offering online courses in March 2020, after our spring semester was interrupted by the situation regarding the coronavirus and we needed to move all our classes online.
While this was challenging for us, Polis successfully moved all our 70 Spring semester classes online – both language courses, and theoretical courses from our Academic Programs - and Polis teachers have since gained many hours of online teaching experience. The academic staff at Polis have adapted The Polis Method to an online format and students have reported their satisfaction at the online classes.
The knowledge we gained in transferring our spring semester online has given us confidence in our ability going forward. In April 2020, Polis launched our first dedicated online classes in Latin and Ancient Greek and we have so far seen how students are steadily acquiring the language through these classes.
We have endeavored to hold as many online summer intensive classes as possible in order to give students the ability to improve their language skills from home. Classes will be held in multiple levels for languages including Ancient Greek, Latin, Biblical Hebrew, Spoken Arabic, MSA and Modern Hebrew.
All classes will be taught through The Polis Method - which you can read more about here - following our Total Immersion and Dynamic Language Development principles. In our summer intensive courses, classes will be held five times per week and students will have the ability to advance an entire level - around 80 Academic Hours - in their chosen language in less than a month.
