In years gone by, it was a universally recognised fact that the best way to learn a new language was to take lessons from a qualified teacher, in a classroom setting. Through this method, students were able to learn from a knowledgeable source, practice with other students of a similar ability and have mistakes corrected quickly. However, there are a number of disadvantages to traditional language schools as well. For instance, they lack flexibility, because students have to attend classes at the exact time they are put on. In many cases, this means attending a class once or twice a week, often in the evenings, when it may not always be convenient.
Today, online language schools like Protelo’s Multilingual Academy are able to provide all of the benefits of a traditional language school, as well as offering far superior levels of flexibility. Students can learn from home, at any time of the day, at a pace that suits them, while still receiving an education from a fully qualified language teacher. As a result, mistakes can still be corrected by an expert, and through the use of online video technology, the other benefits of a classroom can be recreated too. Meanwhile, class sizes in online language schools are usually much smaller than in a traditional classroom, even a one to one session ensuring that each student gets more individual attention.
Overall, learning through this method is more convenient and can be tailored to suit individual needs and circumstances, increasing the likelihood of students sticking with it and fulfilling their true potential.
