How did I choose English Course Online?

Save Money and Time 

Online learning saves your money and time but also gives you lots of flexibility and comfort. E-learning has become so popular in recent months and enabled us to learn anytime and from anywhere we like. Things to be aware of when choosing your Online course are plentiful.

It is better to study with popular language schools e.g. internationally known language schools as they provide the true value. With private tutors, you risk the waste of your money and time as they may lack the expertise in the field. Lots of people don´t trust private tutors and I understand their worries completely.

How did I choose my Online English Speaking Course?

When I was studying English, little did I know about the quality of the teaching process. I paid lots of money to private tutors. After some time I just gave up. What I need from tutors is friendliness and an easy-going personality. Teachers should be tolerant, patient individuals. Their attitude, behavior influences us tremendously.

I like tutors for their talkative personalities and attention they give to me. What makes me buy a language course? Well, first comes the price. How much do I have to pay for one hour course? I wouldn’t pay a lot. Online English speaking course is not expensive if you know how to search for it.

Define the price you are willing to pay for it. If the price doesn´t matter, then you´re the lucky one. But remember one thing, the price does not always reflect the good quality of provided services. People perceive higher price as the sign of higher standards but the opposite may be the truth at times.

Summer Love 3th Part

“Hi, Kate, I almost forgot to come by. I had to study for my exams”, I apologized, staring into her small deep-set eyes.


“Come in, how ‘s it going?”
I stepped in and took off my jacket and let her hang it for me.
“Not very well, it’s so hard to grasp the meaning of it all.”


“You will make it. I´m sure of it. There´s something I need to tell you…I’m pregnant.”


“Oh no….”
“One night… I don´t even know his name…” She said with fear in her eyes.

How to Find a good Japanese teacher for you Today

The most frequent question I get every day is ´´How can I find a good Japanese teacher?´´

You can have lessons through skype with your teachers or have private lessons or in the language school. Nowadays,  due to the current pandemic situation online tutoring is growing in its popularity.

Young people rely on technology a lot. They use their smartphones during the day to communicate or to search for information on the internet. In order to learn about good recipes or about the world around them.

Being attentive during classes may be a problem, for They are addicted to their electronic devices so much. This may disrupt the learning process.

Learning via their smartphones has become more favourable way of studying as the input of information has changed as well

Their electronic devices became their best friends and therefore teachers try to implement them into the teaching process.

The world of online education is amazing, as we do not have to commute or travel anywhere, just sit in front of the computer and listen to our tutors.

Turn on the screen, put the headphones on and learning can jump start!

  1. Find a professional teacher – when you look for a good tutor online, think twice before you choose him or her online. Online learning as I had already mentioned is my favourite study method amongst students!
  1. Do the background analysis– check if your tutor is experienced and has the best feedback. The best thing to do is to opt for a reputable education school. Language schools already have some credibility, so It is a fancy way of learning by most students. Unlike private tutoring which may seem suspicious initially.

  1. Do not get confused by wording. Some people may enhance their skills with false remarks, so as to get lots of students. They often pretend to make you believe they are the best choice on the market for you. Their qualifications may be bad. Do your work. Find out a lot about them to make sure you get the best! Most language schools require tests to verify their teachers. So as to ensure non-native teachers provide the quality service to their clients online!

A good Japanese teacher title shall not confuse you, make sure to check their credibility as it may be deceiving.

Learning can be funny and interactive. You may find new friends soon!

Tips to Build Your Vocabulary in English Faster

Affiliate Dislaimer: I may earn a small commission at no additional cost to you when you click links placed in this post

Learning is like diving in the ocean, first you have to study how to swim, then you can jump in. 

The same principle applies here. Learn how to swim and afterwards find the nearest ocean.

Initially you will encounter lots of steep roads on your way to success in your efforts but remember one thing ´´Rome wasn’t built in one day´´.

Learn Via Translation

When you translate your learn words in context. Words have multiple combinations, their variations are unlimited. 

 ´´Work´´ can be a noun and a verb. How do we know it’s a noun? 

Well Nouns come first, verbs follow it. Translate your target language every day and your efforts will bear its fruit! 

When you build vocabulary via translation you study contextual meaning of words. Quite useful right? 

Don´t Torture Yourself By Drilling New Words

The more fed up you are with studying new words, the worse your performance becomes. 

Let it be. Go with the flow and learn new words naturally without pressure. 

Many studies have put forth the importance of an amiable environment when learning new things. 

Don’t Neglect Your Listening Skills 

When you build vocabulary, build it with audio recordings by Natives.

Play Word Games

Playing word games builds your vocabulary to some extent. You have to think deeply about different words and this way you memorize new words more easily.

You don´t have to Study All Words

Remember one thing. For communication in language we only need to know few thousands of words

Do you remember the time when you couldn’t retrieve a word in your native language? Well, It has happened to all of us and it is a natural part of learning. We learn and we forget. 

Reason why we can’t retain them in our memory is their occurrence in speech. 

Study with English Teachers

English tutor will guide your properly, explain you complex English words or sentences. When I was learning English, I spoke with English teachers a lot.

You have to take the active part in the learning process. Reading is fine but it is the passive way of studying foreign languages thus not effective as much as the active study of languages!
