Does it make sense to study a language on Skype?

The skepticism of many fans of ‘live’ classes concerning, so popular today, learning languages on Skype, has made us want to think about some aspects: why they are in doubt, what good is in lessons on Skype, and whether they make sense? Let’s figure out why it’s good to learn a foreign language on Skype.

1. No matter where you are. You can sit at home, in the office (if you have free time), or you can even go to a cafe. You only need a computer (it also may be a laptop or a tablet!) with Skype and the Internet!

2. You also don’t need to travel. Firstly, it is not necessary to spend money on the road. Secondly, if you live in a province, while the best teachers, of course, are in big cities (or, maybe, even abroad), the problem about the teachers who are not available to you disappears. Besides, rental fees are subtracted from the lesson price. So, the cost of training becomes immediately lower!

3. Lessons at the computer are more interesting by default than just at the classroom. For example, the teacher can simply offer you to have a look at a website or can share what’s happening on his or her computer screen. So you are shown lots of interesting things; you can stay in touch using voice and video connections typing something that you should show your teacher in writing in a text chat. It’s objectively easier than to sit at the desk. In addition, there’s nothing to stop you lying on a sofa or drinking coffee!

4. You can record your Skype conversation. And it means that if you need to remember what the teacher said or you asked about – there’s no need to fumble in your notes! Just you should rewind the video lesson to the right place, and everything will be solved very easily.

As for the disadvantages ... There is no question about lack of tactile contact - there is a visual one, and so, what for do you need tactile contact with the teacher? Perhaps, there is only one point - the risk that the Internet can be down. But the lesson disrupted because of a faulty Internet connection can be easily rescheduled. But what if the classroom where you are studying is under repair? Or teacher’s relatives came and are making some noise? Problems can appear everywhere, it’s okay.

So, it doesn’t matter what language you are learning - English, Polish, French or German - it makes sense to try doing it on Skype. This can save your time, solve the problem of distance, and generally ease learning process. Please contact us about language learning on Skype - and you won’t regret!
