2019 EDU: Language learning: What could a virtual (online) campus offer?


Language learning: 
What could a virtual (online) campus offer? 

A school has special advantages for teaching its native language to people who want to learn that language. The old disadvantage used to be that people could only attend that school after expensive travel. Travel on the internet is free and fast.

Universal campus (Kitely)
  • A German university would choose its own campus view.
  • As would any university anywhere.

Native speakers

  • The virtual campus could be provided by a school with the target language.
  • If you want to learn German, you could learn it at a German university.
  • Talk with German instructors. Socialize with German students.
  • Low cost plan: "Study in Germany, live at home"
