How many times have you thought, “I should learn another language!” … but put it on hold because you just couldn’t find the time? Online classes have revolutionized the way we study and learn, and new technologies continue to make remote learning even easier and more effective.
If time, budget, or resource constraints have kept you from embarking on a foreign language learning journey in the past, here are three reasons online language learning may be right for you.
Learn From Anywhere
Committing to learning another language is a significant task in its own right. Enrolling in an on-site language class adds several factors to the mix—for one, leaving your home! Online learning, on the other hand, can be done from anywhere you please. On a particularly busy day, you can “go to class” from the comforts of your home… you don’t even have to change out of your pajamas (we certainly won’t tell!). If you’ll be more productive from a local coffee shop or library, or if taking classes during your lunch hour is preferable, that works too—just about anything goes in an e-learning environment. With online language courses, you won’t need to disrupt your normal daily routine, and you can design your study plan around existing job and family schedules.
Interactive, Immediate Feedback
The interactive components of online learning differentiate it from traditional classroom experiences. From click-to-submit review quizzes, to automated games, to computer activities, e-learning often blends tried and true learning tools with a highly interactive interface. If your learning style would benefit from the immediate gratification of instant quiz results and activity feedback, online language classes are certainly worth considering. Of course, eliminating some of the time needed for language instructors to grade exams and worksheets can also accelerate the learning process—allowing you to help set the pace of your language lessons.
The Choice is Yours
Online courses offer you the chance to make the critical decisions that will affect your learning experience. As the student, you can determine the style of learning that is best for you. Would you most enjoy an entirely online learning experience, or online lectures with the option for in-person elements? Individual or group instruction? Recorded lessons or classes taught in real time? Automated clips or a live teacher?
Choosing an online program that meets your needs as a learner is a key step in maximizing your potential for success in language study. Online course offerings give you the opportunity to make choices that best suit you and your lifestyle and will set you on the path toward a productive and engaging language learning experience.
