Complete different situations on our Business Cybersecurity program to unlock new challenges. These situations are based on real life experiences, you have to complete a certain set of them in order to unlock challenges. These challenges are here to check your new knowledge and make sure you understood everything correctly. Once you’ve completed your ten first situations, you can unlock your first challenge, which is the revision challenge. It will allow you to check what you’ve learned so far. From fifteen situations completed, you will unlock the pet peeve challenge, which focuses on your mistakes to help you improve what you learned where you need it most!

As you can see, our lessons are highly tailored to your needs and how you learn, we believe this is the most efficient way to improve.

Here is a sneak peek of what you will be able to find on one of our Programming and Development lesson:

→ our lessons will provide you with a better understanding of working on a team project

→ you will become more familiar with using the modal forms of verbs

→ use specific IT vocabulary

Our lesson are inspired by real like work situations, for example:

“Have you ever worked on a project with an international team? Today, more and more IT/Cybersecurity projects involve members from various countries. Communication is key for staying on the same page.”

Then, to make sure you understood the lesson correctly, some questions or mini activities related to what you learned will be asked to you, like the “associate” type of exercise :

Question 1: Match the synonyms

as planned

as scheduled



to design

to create

to evaluate

to test

Our corrections, (like the following one from the “associate” exercise) are always in-depth, so you can check if you understood everything correctly:

“Think about some typical steps when working on a website project. If you want things to go as planned, you need to create a template before developing the front end. A good idea toward the end of the project is to test the design with users.”

You will also be able to find some fun facts along with your lessons, your general knowledge is put to the test too! Would you be surprised to know that the first programmer was a woman?

Along with vocabulary sheets and online lessons, you can learn through our remote classes: GlobalExam offers desktop, mobile friendly video coaching.

  • Individual (30min class): the theme of the lesson is free and nothing is imposed, you choose what you need and let your teacher know what you would like to work on.
  • Collective (1h class, up to 6 people): these are often great for role playing in-work situations. See our available themes below.

Video coaching is a very efficient way to work your english skills “in-situation”, it is a way to apply what you learned and check that you understood everything perfectly in your lesson.

With these kinds of lessons, you’ll be sure to improve your pronunciation and your oral comprehension as well, a key to improve any new language. It is essential you master vocabulary words, but your oral skills too. Our native teachers are here to improve your pronunciation and to help you with speech delivery.
