Online Webcam English Classes

I have been teaching French and German business people English in online webcam classes since 2013. I have limited myself to doing one-to-one classes and the majority of my learners are at the lower levels.

This learning method is extremely effective: I have many returning students and test results rarely fall below 70%.

The question has to be why is it so effective? Here are my thoughts after doing it regularly for five years;

  1. It appeals to motivated students who are prepared to fit classes into their work schedules.
  2. The course material is of universal use to business people and is supplemented by customised material created by me to give the learner more detail in specific areas of interest.
  3. One-to-one is ideal for bonding with the learner. It’s very rare that I don’t find a way of building the trust and self-confidence of the learner.
  4. It’s very time-efficient: if a beginner is struggling to understand say an English grammar point presented in English, I can explain it in their language too.
  5. The intensive nature of the virtual classroom seems to help me to focus much more than in an actual classroom on what the learner is saying: as a result my correction and review work with learners is exceptionally well-targeted.
  6. If I wanted to improve my Spanish (which has been on my ‘to do’ list for some time!!!), online webcam classes are the route I would take.
