Practical information


  • The online course requires internet access.
  • The course can ”remember” how far you got, so in case you need to pause, you can return and pick-up right where you left off.
  • The course is taken through an internet browser, so you can take it anywhere with internet access.
  • The course is interactive, guided by speak and among other things offers a dictionary function. After each course-module comes a module-test, which must be passed in order to advance to the next module. The course finishes with a final test, and afterwards offers a print of a personal certificate.
  • The final test in the course is locked and requires the participants login. The final test can only be taken, when the participant has completed all seven modules. This means that the participant cannot skip any of the modules. The participants are also required to open up each new module with a brief “test yourself” at the end of every previous module.
  • The “test yourself”-questions are similar to the questions at the final test, so it is a good idea to train yourself with them during the course.
  • The questions for the final test are drawn randomly from a big pot of questions. This means that the test never contain exactly the same questions in the same order.
  • The final test is a multiple choice and the participant need at least 90% correct answers to pass. If the participant fails the test he/she is able to retake it immediately. When passing the test, the certificate-ikon opens and offers the opportunity to print a certificate. Notice that your immediate manager must sign the certificate in order to validate it.
  • Remember to turn up the volume on your computer, so you also get the sound part. Use earplugs or headphones.
  • You can choose to pause, rewind or fast forward, so you can revisit soundbites if you miss them. You can also get a visual of the text read aloud by the speaker by clicking the T-icon.
  • If you wish to watch the movies, we recommend downloading them on a steady internet connection and viewing them on your computer.

Now you have a certificate, which your company needs a copy of in order to demonstrate that the right skills are present in the galley. Enjoy.
