Imagine Taking Your English Class From Home

May 23, 2008
Can you imagine the freedom of being able to sit at home and take an English class online? Well this is possible with the many online courses you can take to help you learn to speak, read and write English. Before you jump in and take the first course you come across when you do an online search, there are certain things you should look for in these classes. First, check the price. There are courses online that do charge an admission fee or only allow you a few free lessons before you have to sign up for the program. There are also sites that offer you free courses that include everything you need to know about the English language.

Such sites have a wealth of resources designed to make your English learning experience an enjoyable one. You don't need to purchase textbooks or even a phrase book with translations from your language into English because all of this is provided free on the site. To take this type of online course, you don't have to take a test to determine your level of English proficiency before you decide which course you want to take. There is a free audio course in American English, a free course in all aspects of English grammar, games for you to play to enhance your skills and a dictionary that translates English words you type in to your own language.

Although the free English course is divided into lessons, you can start off at any level you please. A good idea would be to start vat the beginning so that even if you already know the rules of grammar for pronouns, nouns or prepositions, for example, this will help you to review the information. Each lesson contains a listening component, an instructional component and practice exercises so that you can use what you have learned. Then you can have the computer grade the sheet for you so if you have made any mistakes, you can go back and review.

One thing you have to be mindful of when taking an English course online is that you do need to set a time when you will use the computer and work on the course. If you only decide to do this every now and then, you won't be really committed to learning the language. You should also accept that when you start you will make mistakes because this is part of the learning process. Keep a notebook so that you can joy down little notes or the rules as you learn them along with your own examples. Record yourself reading some of the passages and replay it so that you can hear yourself speak and be able to determine how well you are progressing.

When you find that you are experiencing difficulty, don't belabor the point. It is better to take a break and come back to it later. The site offering the free course also has other resources to help you when you do have problems. Check out the pen pal section where you may find someone from your native country that is also learning English. You could start communicating with each other and help each other learn. There is also a section where you can hire a personal tutor, but it is not on a permanent basis. You can hire a tutor for a hour if you wish for a fee of $35 and not have to make a commitment for additional time.
