Courses with physical attendance

For physical classes, please bring along a face mask. You will have to wear it all time. In addition to this, in our classrooms we have adjusted the seating order in a way that guarantees the minimum distance of 1,50m on every side. The amount of participants in the class depends on the classroom and varies between min. 4 and max. 14 persons. Thanks to this security measure you can take off your mask once you’re seated in the classroom! Please follow our hygiene concept during your stay at speakeasy.

We implemented the following new measures in the school:

  1. All doorhandles in the school have been outfitted with a special anti-germ foil. It helps reduce any lingering viruses or bacteria on contact surfaces with 99.98% efficiency.

  2. Each classroom will be equipped with an air filter. According to a recent study, air filters can help reduce the amount of the aerosol virus load by as much as 90% in a half hour. The air filters will be an addition to regularly opening the windows and ventilating the school.

  3. To keep the school heated despite ventilating at lower temperatures, we installed heat lamps in the classrooms.

Online courses

We continue to offer online courses which you can also sign up for online. The online courses take place in a virtual classroom. You will receive your log in details per email after your registration. Our online courses are available in different course formats: The Online Intensive course takes place on four days per week; the online evening course gives you two nights of lessons per week.
