More and more businesses have adopted a flexible working policy and the number of remote workers across the world has increased massively. However, working remotely should not stop you from embarking on language training. On the contrary, there are many online tools to facilitate high quality language learning. Moreover, there are many professional and experienced tutors delivering their lessons online.
5 benefits of Online Training
We have detailed 5 benefits to Online Language Training below to help you see the reasons why should try it:
You tell us what you need and we will aim to make it happen. You decide whether you want group training or 1-2-1 and what time you’d like your lessons. If you are having 1-2-1 training you can change the day and time of your lessons on a weekly basis to suit your work schedule. You can also have more than one lesson a week at any time of day or at the weekend.
2. Tailored to your needs
We will also discuss your objectives with you prior to the beginning of the training. This allows us to tailor the content of your training course to suit your objectives rather than teaching the same course to everyone. Choose from over 20 different languages.
Your online training uses Skype, Zoom, WebEx or MS Teams, for example, so that you can see, hear and interact with your tutor. The lessons will be interactive and flexible using a mix of activities to improve your language skills. Your tutor will set guided learning between lessons to help you improve.
You can ensure you are in a quiet, comfortable area with no distractions. This will help you to be more relaxed and confident about speaking to your tutor.
5. No travel
You can have your language lesson in the comfort of your own home or hotel so that you don’t need to travel anywhere.

What technology do we use for Online Language Training?
On top of our 5 benefits of online language training, there are also some really good online platforms. Here are a few of the ones that our tutors use:

Skype can handle up to 50 people in a single video call, which can come in handy for training large groups. The app allows for calls to be recorded in case someone misses a session.
The Zoom video conference app works for Android, iOS, PC and Mac. The app offers a basic free plan that hosts up to 100 participants. The app has HD video and audio capabilities, collaboration tools like simultaneous screen-sharing and co-annotation, and the ability to record meetings and generate transcripts.
- Microsoft Teams
