We’re moving …

We’ve been very busy over the summer and are delighted to report that we’re moving to a brand new website very soon. All existing Radio Lingua Schools accounts will be moved over to our new Coffee Break Academy for Schools site, and you will be able to access your High Five and Coffee Break language courses there. When the new site launches you won’t have to do anything: you’ll automatically be redirected to the correct place and will be able to access your courses using your existing username (school email address) and password. Please bear with us as we put the finishing touches to the site and update all accounts. We’ll email all users when the move has been made. Thanks for your patience in the meantime.
