“Corona” term

Due to the unforseen circumstances brought upon us by the arrival of the corona virus, regular business at suzalingua will now be suspended. This means that no new courses will start up for the time being.

For all extant courses, I will offer a new web-based solution to keep us busy in the next few weeks. The details of this new approach will be communicted to the relevant groups directly. I will start off with a trial period of four weeks, so that we can reassess the situation after Easter.

I thank you all for your understanding. Stay safe, and take good care of yourselves and each other.
