Four reasons why learning online via Skype is better than attending a class

Updated: Nov 18, 2021

Many people think learning online is less effective than meeting a teacher in real life. We don't think so, it can be even better than attending a class. Here's why:

  1. You can see your teacher: that makes your French lesson more personal, which also is important for comprehension! If you look at someone’s face, you understand what they are saying much more easily (for example, on the telephone it’s difficult). Seeing the person is important also for imitating the movements of their mouth, which helps you considerably in improving your French pronunciation.

  2. You can hear your teacher: if you have earphones and a good Internet connection you can hear your French teacher better than from the back of the classroom in a language school. This is fundamental for the music of the French language to penetrate your ears.

  3. You can also communicate in writing: on the “chat” space on Skype you can write whatever you want during your French lesson. Doing exercises, writing examples, doing corrections, reviewing the lesson, making comments, sending questions to your teacher… on the “chat” all that is possible! You have even more facility for direct communication with your French teacher than in a class.

  4. And how do you find the subjects to work on for your written comprehension? It’s easier than you thought. Just imagine the tons of documents in French that are available on the Internet! Articles, novels, all kinds of written material, current affairs, poems, etc, etc… You have only to ask your teacher to send you the links to the relevant subjects and you can begin reading in French. was created to help you to speak, understand and write French fluently.
