Common Questions About the Individual Lessons

How many lessons do you have?

We have started with one lesson available, but are creating more lessons for you right now. Feel free to offer us suggestions of situations you would like to see portrayed! 🙂

How are the lessons structured?

Each lesson is built upon a conversation in different circumstances. Different English subjects are reviewed and practised within each lesson and each lesson also has an entire module dedicated to the clinical aspect of the conversation.

How long does it take to complete one lesson?

This will depend on each individual but generally each lesson can be completed within 1 hour.

For how long do I have access to each lesson?

Once you buy access to a lesson, you have lifetime access to it. That means forever and ever 😀

How do I know what's inside each lesson?

We have a short description of the theme of each lesson on the lessons list below (here on this page), but you can see all the contents in each lesson by clicking the “See Lesson” button provided for each lesson.

Do I get a discount for buying more than one lesson?

We don’t yet have many lessons available, but when we have more lessons available we will create “lesson bundles” that allow you to purchase several lessons at a discounted price. For now, only individual lessons are available.

Do I need more resources than those you offer for each lesson?

No, all the resources are provided during the lesson, although we will sometimes point you to extra resources you can visit to further improve your understanding of the subject.

How do I know what English level I should pick?

English levels are divided between Intermediate and Advanced. The level also reflects the difficulty of the clinical case/situation used in the lesson. The Intermediate level is appropriate for those with good understanding of grammar and daily conversation. The Advanced level is appropriate for those proficient in oral communication and good understanding of complex grammar. If you are already working in the UK and communicating easily, you will likely gain more from the Advanced level. If you have to ask people to repeat themselves often but can speak with them and make yourself understood, you can start with the Intermediate level.

What happens if I'm not happy with the lesson I chose?

Please let us know why you are not satisfied! We always try to make these thinking about what you need and how we can help you! If you are not happy with the lesson, you have a 14-day money-back guarantee after enrolment – we just ask that you are honest with us 🙂

 

If you got the wrong English level, let us know by emailing me at contact@ukvetmove.com. We can swap you over to a different lesson level provided you have not completed the lesson you have purchased in the first place. If we do this, you will no longer have access to the first lesson you chose, only the lesson you get transferred to (but you still have access to our website content).

Can this count as CPD?

There is no way to have a course “CPD approved”, but “any activities you undertake in order to further your professional competence as part of a planned development programme can be counted towards your CPD“. That means if you plan on improving your communication skills and take a lesson, such can be counted as CPD.

Do you provide a certificate of completion?

Yes! 🙂 When you complete each lesson you are able to download a certificate of completion that you can then upload on your CPD records.

I have a discount code, how do I use it?

Just add your discount code on the “Coupon Code” box in the checkout page and click “Apply Coupon”. The price will be updated and you can continue the checkout process 🙂 Here’s how the “Coupon Code” box looks like:

 

 

Do I need to register on this website to access the course?

Yes – you will need to create an account if you are not registered with the platform, but this will be done automatically when you purchase your lesson 🙂 If you have already registered with ukvetmove.com, you can just log in during the checkout.
