Yes. All the content available in online classes is the same as you would learn with face-to-face classes. The difference is just that the class takes place online instead of in a physical classroom.

In order for you to become fluent, you need a dedicated study plan, consistent practice, comprehension of the language details, and eventually the ability to speak confidently about all the topics covered.

Because that way you will be able to learn the other skills (listening, reading and writing) in a more natural way, this method mimics the way you learned your native language.
