How I found an Online English Speaking Partner?
It was the summer of 2015 when I decided to take up English lessons with native teachers. I was thrilled by the whole idea of having an online English speaking partner.
I also studied French because it was a compulsory subject in school. French is a beautiful language, I really like the sound, the accent. I hope, one day I will be speaking with a French accent.
Back then, my English was at B2 level I believe. It felt awkward speaking to complete strangers online but I had to overcome the fear of speaking to people. I was determined to have online lessons every day.
The very same day I booked my first class with my native English teacher. Her name was Chloe. She was talkative and supportive during classes.
We discussed various topics from environmental issues to politics, social problems, existential issues. Did I enjoy lessons or not? Initially, I dreaded it but later on, She became my friend and lessons were fun for me.
Enjoy your lessons and learning will come easy too! is my motto.
I think online lessons are great for those who are busy with work or school. Time-flexibility and money is the true reason why I opted for e-learning instead of in-person English classes.
An online English speaking partner is a great opportunity to meet new people and get insight into various cultural backgrounds.
