Benefits of online lessons

Flexible and convenient

Online lessons are a convenient and flexible way to boost your English language skills and confidence. You can do your online lessons anywhere – at home, with a friend or in a quiet classroom straight after school. It is easy to manage your time and include language lessons in your day when there is no need to travel.

Great tools and technology

At ECS, we use tools like Zoom in our online English lessons. That means our fun teachers can use a digital whiteboard and chat to clarify English spelling, share images, documents and presentations to help explain grammar, listen to clips and watch short videos, and of course practise lots of speaking and English conversation. Access to different media helps keep online lessons engaging for children and teenagers. There is no need to install a programme on your computer.

Gain confidence

Taking individual or small group English language lessons online is a great way to gain confidence. Kids and teens may feel unsure and uncomfortable speaking in another language. Young people may also feel shy and too nervous to share their ideas and opinions in front of a group. Starting with a one-to-one or small group online lessons can be a great way to build confidence and become comfortable speaking up in front of others.

Focus on your needs

One-to-one online English language lessons can also focus on exactly what a pupil needs. Whether you want to work on grammar, pronunciation or speaking, our friendly and professional teachers can tailor your online English course to meet your needs and interests.

If you are unsure of your language goals or don't know what areas you need to improve, we can help. We work with children and teens to establish their learning priorities and produce a personal online language programme to meet them. Whether grammar, speaking, exam preparation or general revision we can help you meet your English language learning aims.
