Every lesson is followed by an electronic output of related theory and commented translations by all participants including the lecturer, enabling further detailed study as well as correspondence study for those who cannot attend personally. The participants cover the “costs” themselves, receive a certificate after each term and are welcome to take part in as many different courses as they please.
