What are the merits of studying English online that were almost unthinkable 19 years ago?

G’day mate. How have you been? Today, I am going to talk about what the merits of studying English online that were almost unthinkable 19 years ago are. The reason why I want to touch upon this topic is that I’d never ever had e-learning experiences in the past, but I’m offering this sort of service and I’m receiving pretty much all positive feedback from ex-students. I think this online-based trend will continue to further develop in the years ahead. Ok, right, let’s get underway, shall we?

You can technically learn English from anywhere and whenever without being affected by the weather

Obviously, it’s become almost the norm in recent years thanks to the continuation of today’s rapid technological revolution. But, just harking back to 1990s or even early 2000s, online learning platform wasn’t so common, nor did it have a good quality that was proportionate to that price. I remember online learning was kind of expensive but the quality of materials tended to be a bit faulty or even deceptive. And of course, the Internet quality was incomparably inferior to that of today’s. So it’s bit hard to evaluate, however, all things considered, e-learning’s become so much better now. In terms of English learning, learning online is so handy, because you just use your smartphone, tablet, or laptop/desktop.

You can learn and develop English skills very well before going abroad to study English or a specific subject at Uni

Everyone wants to be well prepared for the English language prior to going abroad to study. But, the overwhelming majority of them tend to start studying English at a language school after arriving in an English-speaking country. Learning English from native speakers via offline basis has still gained much popularity. However, most of them are prone to end up in extending a student visa for studying English and spending more money than they were supposed to be. Simply because it’s extremely hard to concentrate on English only. Studying English at a local language school is a great temptation for English beginners, but please be aware of the fact that many of such schools are taking into account the lucrativeness of eating your precious money, not the improvement of your English skills.

There are many better learning platforms available online, so you should maximise the possibility of acquiring sufficient level of the English language skills well before going abroad, so that you could skip a language course before studying at Uni.

You can more easily manage the progress of how your English learning has been going, in comparison with a complete self-study

Learning English online makes your progress check so much easier and more effective. To put it simply, it’s hard to think critically of how and what you’ve been doing. To do so, a third person’s eye is essentially needed. But, if you’ve got a hectic business schedule, then it’s not possible for you to physically go to language schools, right? It’s dead simple, but not many people understand this. Many of them tend to try to sacrifice their day off for attending the school. In this case, they often are not going to get positive outcomes. In contrast, learning online is more handy and you are most likely to receive an instant feedback, and of course you learn English a live face-to-face interaction. So, it’s going to be much easier for you to manage and control your progress of English learning.

Last but not least, you can discover some particular mistakes such as mispronunciation by studying English online platform

If you go to language schools, I don’t think it’s possible to find any particular mistake. This is simply because teachers don’t really pay attention to any particular point, but much broader or more general things. If I’m critical, I’d say many native English teachers are usually not good at picking up small things like a tiny mispronunciation or even collocation. The main purpose of teaching English is to encourage students to speak confidently and interact with other students coming from different backgrounds. But unfortunately, they are not willing to find a particular mistake for each student, which is common. By contrast, learning online is a different story. Online teachers are more obliged to nitpick even small mistakes, and so there will be more possibilities for you to realise key errors that have an adverse impact on the deceleration in the progress of your English language skills.

By the way, I’m offering one of the best online English programs that tailor the lessons to suit the student’s needs. I’m pretty confident about it. I’m willing to personalise everything you need. Should you have any further information and query, please feel free to contact me via email or leaving comments here.

That’s all for today. Thanks for reading.

Have a lovely Saturday!
