Confused by Options?
How Will You Begin to Find Your Online English Course?
Below are common ways of selecting an online English course.
Which do you think is the worst advice?
Sign up with the teacher with a huge number of likes on Insta
Obviously being ‘successful’ at social media is no guarantee of quality of teaching as anyone can pay for ‘likes’.
However, regular comments on Instagram posts can testify to happy customers and generous advice.
Be wary of new accounts with no community.
Definitely follow anyone you may be interested in – consume all their content and see what they’ve got.
Use a recommendation from a friend
Perhaps, but are you certain that your learning style is their style? Do you have the same language needs?
Sign up to the one with the most entertaining TikTok
If you like how they deliver their content and engage with you and others – it can be a good starting point. Now you need to identify if they are the right match for you.
Use your neighbourhood language school's online service
Especially if you wish for a traditional kind of tuition and you don’t really mind who teaches you on the day.
Another advantage is that in certain countries, you can get government funding for classes – but only with a company in your country that this rebate system set up. (Tends to be the larger schools)
Chose the one who promises to get you fluent
Be wary of online English teachers overpromising results.
It takes a LONG time to gain language fluency.
A rough ballpark figure is 200 hours of learning just between level (and of course, everyone has their own speed).
However, working ON fluency is a valid target if you have very high knowledge of written English – you just have few opportunities to speak it.
You need a language course that converts your passive knowledge into active knowledge.
There is no single bad answer for everyone –
just a bad for YOU.

3 Bonus Tips for Finding Your Next English Course
Tip #01 | What to Search Google for
Online English tuition is broken down into many options and styles and ‘niches’.
You can learn ‘English for Accountants’ to ‘English for Zoom’ – and everything in between.
Sometimes it is important to pick a language course for a particular skill or profession – but truly, not as often as you may think.
It can be more important to match the right online English teaching style to your particular learning needs.
You can always revisit English for a specific purpose once your fire is ignited.

Tip #02 | ‘Business English’
Business English is so broad term that is not very useful.
Learn what English skills you need to perform your ‘business’ job well in English.
Tip #03 | 1:1 Classes are Overrated
Everyone always thinks they need 1:2:1 coaching. It’s the industry standard – but it’s a self-perpetuating bad standard.
Don’t Follow the Norm
90% of the time, learners would progress more efficiently with set exercises to do on their own (daily/once a week – again it’s a choice) – then come together in a small group to practice what they’ve just learned.
It’s a less intensive way to learn, less expensive for the client, AND more time effective for everyone.
The exceptions are the 5% of learners who are preparing for a presentation, or interview and just need class time to rehearse.
Are you in this 5%?
The other exception is the 5% of clients who don’t mind paying for accountability. These clients think that they are incapable of working autonomously and will happily pay someone to watch them do exercises – as they won’t ever do them in any other circumstances.
Accountability is more than working in front of someone
If this is you – that’s a learning style you need to match to a particular type of coach.
BY THE WAY, IT’S NOT ONE WHO WANTS TO TAKE YOUR MONEY TO WATCH YOU WORK.
You need to work with a coach who can engage you.
Even a daily 5-minute SLACK chat is a MUCH better use of your time.
Find a coach who can offer you that.
