    Worldwide Online 

    At Worldwide School we have our own special Online system for all students as well.

    The Worldwide Online is used for information and communications between the student and the school. The student can use the system to get messages from teachers, counsellors and Worldwide staff. They can also get recent Worldwide School news as well as read monthly reports and check test scores.

    More importantly, Worldwide Online will help students with their learning. They can do homework through the system, access recommended webpages and do exercises to help with reading, writing, grammar, listening and vocabulary. They can choose to practice whatever they need and accelerate their learning.

    Teachers will be able to see results and give feedback on progress.
