Why Choose Language School?
When you’re on your own, you can easily get discouraged if something isn’t going according to plan. However, at a language school, the entire class is in it together and you have your fellow combatants to help you in your struggles.
There’s no escape when you’re in a class and you have to be quick on your feet when placed on the spot. If a classmate or a teacher asks you a question, you have to answer it immediately. You can’t take a moment to ponder your answer, which greatly improves the spontaneous and quick use of your language knowledge.
You won’t have to beat your head thinking about whether something you’ve said or written is correct or not. You’ll get instant feedback from your teacher, or, sometimes, from your classmates as well.
Yes, you’ll probably learn a lot about grammar and vocabulary at a language school, but, more importantly, you’ll learn how to really use the language. You’ll do simulations, debates, role-plays, presentations… Soon, you’ll master these real-world language skills.
Learning a language in a class, alongside other students, means you’re able to interact organically with others in a foreign language, which greatly boosts your confidence for a real-life uncharted adventure in a foreign language.
Lastly, learning with others is a lot more fun than learning on your own. You’re guaranteed good laughs and a pleasant atmosphere, which goes a long way when trying to learn a language from scratch.
There’s no replacing language teachers. They’re there to help you learn better, faster, and with more confidence. They will show you what to learn and how to learn it, and they won’t allow you to fail!
Again, we have to go back to teachers, the unsung heroes of language learning. They have resources that you simply wouldn’t even look for or employ. Plus, all the resources at teachers’ disposal are there for a single purpose – teaching you English!
Finally, although it might sound a bit silly, language schools ooze a learning atmosphere. When you’re trying to learn a language on your own at home, you can get easily distracted. On the other hand, when you enter a language school, you know you’re there with a goal, and that goal is learning English.
