A new format of collaboration for a student and a teacher is dictated by the modern life itself. These days more and more students are choosing Skype lessons as a comfortable and yet the same productive, if not more, format of studies. E-learning is studying English via Skype at any time or place that you find comfortable. The only thing required is your favorite gadget with the Internet access. The effectiveness of this format can truly compete with our traditional concepts of education as it opens new opportunities to attract much more smart technologies that not only optimize the studying process but helps our students’ motivation stay at a high level. Less lessons missed, more things to explore found. E-learning is perfect for those who learn the language while leading a fast urban lifestyle.
What features the course?
E-learning is organized on an individual base which means that the course will be tailored to meet your personal needs in studies. Your unique difficulties, temp of studies and any required needs will be taken in consideration while structuring your particular course and offering you the most comfortable schedule of the lessons.
As for the academic issues we still stick to the Communicative Approach in teaching English and pick up the most effective materials that we often employ for out General Spoken courses.
The only one difference from face to face format is that your book will be in pdf format which is handy at any gadget during the lesson via Skype or whenever you wish to revise any material from your computer.
Your teacher explains all grammar and lexical material, answers your questions and you move on to an intensive speaking practice working on the studied clichés and grammatical structures. Speaking is seen as the most important component of practice in this format of the English course as it is a wonderful method to get rid of a communicative barrier, to learn how to use all learnt words in speech and to understand what other people say.
During the lesson your teacher will be offering you various tasks to develop all four main language activities. They are: speaking, listening, reading and writing. In the course of the lesson you will polish up your speaking and listening skills by means of interesting tasks.
