You might be thinking about trying online lessons using Skype with a British native speaker, but you're a little unsure if they will work, how they will work, and if it's your cup of tea - for you - . If you're busy and can't find the time to get to an English language school, then Skype classes are great.
20 GBP - 1 x 60 minutes
19 GBP - 4 x 60 minutes
Skype lessons mean you can study when and where you want. Even from your bed! The thing about Skype classes is you will probably have headphones on, which will give you a clear sound when listening to your teacher, me, but not only this, but a greater focus.
My Skype lessons are a little different from your typical Skype English classes. There is no webcam - but I will say hello on camera in the first lesson just to show you I am human - so you don't need to feel uncomfortable. I use presentation slides to help the lesson flow and that's where our focus will be. With these engaging slides, our headphones, and voices, we can expect a very productive lesson.
All lessons have been planned with the same objective that is to maximise your speaking opportunity, to give you the chance to voice your opinions and thoughts, and to build on vocabulary and expressions while correcting any mistakes you might make during a lesson.
To understand the steps of the lesson, have a look at the below info.
Agree on a time and day for your online lesson.
I send you a link to the virtual classroom 10 minutes before lesson time
You click the link sent to your email or Skype and join. You can connect with a computer, tablet, or phone as there is a Zoom app.
You will be greeted with a welcome slide and a 'hello, how's it going.' from me.
The lesson will have a different topic each time, so for example Men and Women could be the topic of the lesson.
One slide might have a picture of a married couple which might generate a conversation on how people get married, what they do before the marriage, and perhaps why people get divorced. Another slide, usually in the middle of the lesson, might look at some vocabulary connected with relationships, for instance, to break up, to make up, to propose. After looking at these words, we will try and use them in conversation and again try and build a conversation from them, so you feel comfortable using them in your own English.
Towards the end of the lesson (and throughout) I'll refer to my notes on any mistakes, or things to come back to
The lesson finishes.
You get an email from me with all of the words and expressions we've talked about during the lesson with some extra ones too, all in context to help you revise.
Hope to speak to you soon.
Luke - Online English Teacher
Native speakers usually don't greet each other with 'Hi, how are you?' You may have been taught this in class, but there are a few more commonly used phrases which mean exactly the same thing.
