For such a small scheme, you have made it quite detailed. I liked the overall concept and each thing individually that you mentioned. I think that it will not be superfluous to also include courses and applications for language training such as preply in the scheme. I think it will be helpful for you to read more info here. In any case, it was useful for me.
