Still not sure if ‘Learning Online via Skype’ is right for you?
♦ Afraid of having to speak “live” and in front of a camera? Don’t be!
If you feel you are too shy or introverted or just not feeling presentable one day, remember you always have the choice of switching your webcam off and using audio only.
♦ Are you the kind of person who likes to make up excuses for not going to class? Rest assured you no longer have to face that:
Rain, not feeling like leaving the house, strike, rush hour traffic – no longer your problem. As long as your internet connection is up and running you’re good to start learning!
♦ Worried you don’t know enough vocabulary yet to have a proper conversation?
Remember you can always keep an online dictionary open in a new tab and look up words as you speak in the target language.
