LEARNING BUSINESS ENGLISH ONLINE The English Language Coach

Why Choose Online English Classes?

Why Choose Online English Classes? Many language learners think you can only learn by attending classes at a brick-and-mortar language academy and have never tried online English Classes. At language academies, there are usually classes of ten or more learners, often at various levels, and you feel like you are back in primary school. Often teachers expect you to do a significant amount of homework and reprimand you if you fail to complete it! Teachers stick strictly to a course book and concentrate mainly on grammar rather than speaking, listening, and using the language. 

Many learners may go along for a few sessions but drop out as they do not feel they are progressing, especially speaking in English. 

They also soon find it restrictive as they have to attend the lessons at a specific time and date, regardless of how busy they are at work, and they dislike wasting a lot of time commuting there and back. 

Does this sound like a recent experience you have had?

Many people thought just like you until they discovered online English classes.

But you ask if it is effective. The answer is YES, and I would like to tell you why.

1) In online classes, you do most of the speaking, listening, and thinking, and you constantly use English. Lesson plans encourage the learner to actively participate by reading out loud, listening and thinking in English.

2) Learners in academy classes often feel unimportant and ignored. There are too many other students, and the teacher doesn’t treat you as an individual. The teacher follows a textbook, and you have to follow them too. With online classes, you are the most important person and have input into your lessons.

3) Lessons and courses are tailor-made to your needs. Your teacher is very patient, fun and relaxed, so they can go through the lessons at your pace and explain things in a way you understand.

4) There is flexibility. Unlike regular academies, where you have to attend the class on the same day at the same time and if you miss the session, you miss the topic, with a one-on-one, online class, you can book a class when you want to.

What if I’m not good with Technology, I hear you say.

People today spend many hours on the internet, and they are used to reading, listening, and absorbing information via the internet. Learning online is no different. You have classes with video, or you can use audio only. Lesson plans are uploaded to Zoom, Skype, or a similar platform that is very easy to use. All you need is a laptop or tablet, and a headset with a microphone.

Don’t I need more discipline to come to online English classes?

No, you can book the lessons in advance, so you have them on the same day and time, every week, pop it into your diary, as you would any with any meeting.

You also have flexibility. We know that you can get busy with work, so you can book a lesson at a time to suit you.

You also don’t need to travel to and from the classroom, so there is no excuse that it is too cold or wet to go out or that you will get stuck in traffic.

What if I want my staff to learn and improve their English?

Many businesses are international, and the Company bosses recognize the importance of their staff being able to communicate effectively with clients, customers, and even colleagues, in English.

We have classes for corporate clients that allow you to mix and match our Business English and General English lessons so your staff know how to use business English but use general English. 

Having your staff take an online course rather than a face-to-face course makes sense. Colleagues can log in wherever they are, so you don’t have to have all your colleagues in one office. No one has to travel to attend the lesson. Time-wise, convenience-wise, and money-wise, learning online makes sense.

So why choose Online Learning?

1) It is intensive but also self-paced. 

2) Lessons and courses are tailored to your needs and wants.

3) You can take a class anywhere you want. A tablet or laptop, a headset with a microphone, a quiet place and an internet connection are all you need. 

4)You have the flexibility to choose the time and day to take your lesson, and there is no travelling to class.

We look forward to seeing you in your English Language Coach class soon. 🙂
