Online English classes in groups
I am practically an activist when it comes to adults studying English one on one. I am 100% sure they are able to develop their language skills much faster than those who choose a traditional English course. A professional English teacher can identify each student’s weaknesses and strengths and develop personalized classes that will boost their fluency in no time.
However, when the students do not have a chance to put into practice what they are learning, their learning experience can feel pointless at times. They might feel discouraged and also lonely. On the other hand, the ones that have the chance to speak English in their workplace or travel abroad can experience the rewards of their efforts and get motivation from that. They feel more confident to interact with others and proud of how far they have come. Therefore, they gain more motivation to continue their studies.
Our online English classes offer students the opportunity to have a forum to interact. By doing so, they put into practice all they are learning and fill this gap of not interacting with others.
Our program consists of a one hour online weekly group class where students from various nationalities can develop fluency. Not only they will be able to socialize and lose their fear of talking in English, but also they will sure feel less lonely and more motivated in their own journeys.
If you are an intermediate student of English and want to know more about the program, fill out the site form and I will be glad to contact you with more information.
