4 way to get the most out of online English classes
ForumDaily and the online English school Skyeng conduct an experimentduring which our journalist goes through a cycle of classes with Skyeng teachers and is trying to find out from her own experience whether her online lessons will help her to write in English just like a native speaker. After each class, Eva Resnick shares her impressions and life-lessons on learning the language. Eva has already listed her 5 reasons to learn English online at Skyeng School. Follow the progress of our journalist, join the training in Skyeng and leave your feedback on the classes in the comments under the articles!
So, here are the 4 tips that will help you reach your goals faster by working with your teacher. via video link in online school.
1. Do your homework
No matter how trite it may sound, the success of the lessons depends on how carefully you perform an independent part of the work. The teacher will be happy to tell you everything and explain, but he will not be able to learn new words instead of you or with a wave of a magic wand so that you can record what you heard without error.
But these skills can be “improved” by doing homework on the school's video platform Skyengbecause it is aimed at developing, let's say, all muscle groups: listening comprehension, ability to build sentences, grammar, vocabulary expansion and the ability to apply new words in practice. In fact, this is another lesson, only without a teacher and free. Do not miss this opportunity to get the necessary skills for nothing!
2. Make a list of questions
We watched a movie or talk show on a video platform Skyeng and did not understand what some English expression means and how can it be applied in life? Doubt whether it is possible to use the phrase from the militant in a decent society? Do not know the difference between the five words that are equally translated into Russian? Great, your teacher will be happy to help you.
Write out all that makes you difficult, and in the lesson you will receive an explanation from the tutor.
3. Solve practical problems
Curriculum in Skyeng provides for an oral discussion of various topics and writing essays. The themes of the lessons are varied and non-banal, but what if you have better ideas? Maybe you will also talk about food, quick dates, or how to identify a self-confident person by his signature, but not better to train your speaking and writing skills not on hypothetical, but on really necessary topics?
Think about the discussion of what things are important to you, but at the same time it causes discomfort due to ignorance of the necessary vocabulary, and ask the teacher to select the appropriate topic for you on the interactive school platform or some additional materials.
If you need to find a job, the teacher will help you prepare your resume correctly, prepare for the interview, learn professional vocabulary. If you do not know what to say at the bank to get some kind of complicated financial service, you can work with the tutor and this topic.
I will share my lesson personalization experience. Once I worked as an author of horoscopes, and decided to write about it for my English-language blog. My teacher picked up a lesson for me, the topic of which was astrology, and thanks to the vocabulary obtained on it, it was easier for me to describe in amusing moments of fun with the work of the soothsayer.
4. Do not be afraid to ask
Learning system in Skyeng very flexible. If you feel that the tasks are too complicated or, on the contrary, too easy and do not give you new knowledge, let your teacher know about it, he will take you to another level.
If you have problems with certain grammatical rules, ask the teacher to add them to the lesson plan, sort out all the incomprehensible moments, and then use the exercises to practice applying the rules to automatism.
If the topics you are studying do not seem interesting to you, tell the teacher what the range of your interests is, so as not to waste time in the classroom on the principle of “suddenly come in handy”. Learn what will be useful for you in the near future.
If the teacher himself does not suit you, this is also not a problem - ask the methodologist to choose a new one for you, describing as clearly as possible what did not suit you in the current teacher and what the new one should be.
I will keep you updated on how my studies are progressing!
