Online learning is here to stay! Last year TIME magazine published a special issue on the future of education. One of the fascinating points focused on the revolution of online learning in every field from engineering to English. Many teachers, schools, universities and language centers (like Bolder English!) are embracing the internet as a new and effective way to teach students and professionals around the world, all you need is internet access (and maybe a video camera, mic & a pair of headphones!!). In this article one professor noted how his online students fared better than the students who actually attended the classes! It just goes to show how Education is changing, we think for the better, by offering online learning options.
One-on-one Online Class – we call it an OOC!
A new word has popped up, it’s called a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course). Here at Bolder English we limit our groups to about 20 people. We find that the most effective way to learn English is with an American native-speaking teacher in a one-on-one online class, let’s call it an OOC! Online learning is perfect for this because it’s convenient and private. Teaching in cafes, libraries and other public places is certainly an option but the intimacy of a closed room can’t be beat. Try out one of our FREE online English lessons and see for yourself. 100% of our first time students end up signing on for additional lessons.
“Then something remarkable happened … [They] seemed to be learning more when they learned online.”
