Coronavirus information

Updated: 10am, 23rd March, 2020.

Live Language is now offering live online classes for students who want to improve their English skills. The classes are interactive and it’s a great way to meet new people during these difficult times. We are using a platform called Zoom which you can use on your phone, tablet or desktop computer. You can download the app from the Apple and Android stores. We look forward to helping you progress your language skills.

We will do all that we can to ensure that your learning is not disrupted too much. Communication is key in all of this, so please do keep in touch with us.

Any questions, just send us a WhatsApp message – 07581880037.

As soon as the Government advice changes for British schools, we will reopen for face-to-face lessons.

The symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a cough
  • a high temperature
  • shortness of breath

But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.

Do

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • always wash your hands when you get home or into work
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
  • try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

Don’t

  • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

If you think you might have coronavirus or you’ve been in close contact with someone who has it:

  • stay at home and avoid close contact with other people
  • do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do next
