Are you trying to pick up a new language independently during quarantine? Have you struggled to learn effectively in face-to-face classes in the past? If you’re having trouble learning a new language, it’s likely because you haven’t tried the most effective tool — online language school.
It might sound odd at first, but online language school presents a host of advantages that free language apps and traditional classroom learning just can’t match. We at La Paz Academy should know. After all, we’re one of the top online language schools in the country, with full accreditation from SACS CASI and AdvanceEd and the ability to offer high school and college credit to students. In today’s blog, we’ll be discussing some of the many reasons why learning a language online is the most efficient and effective method for mastering a foreign language. Read on to learn more!
Smaller Class Sizes
Have you ever been in a class so large, you felt like you got lost amongst row after row of desks, or that the teacher didn’t know you by name? Feelings of isolation are detrimental to student success, especially in a subject as challenging as language.
At online language schools like La Paz Language Academy, we cap the maximum number of students in each course in order to maintain an optimal student-to-teacher ratio. We want you to feel heard and attended to!
Free language learning apps are alluring with their convenience and affordability — after all, you can pull them up on your phone, and you don’t have to pay a thing! However, while these types of apps can be helpful supplements to more serious instruction, they’re no substitute for the real deal.
You need actual instruction from a certified teacher in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of a new language that goes beyond simple vocabulary. La Paz Language Academy is certified as one of the top online language schools in America, with the ability to offer course credit for high school and college! You can count on the quality of our instruction.
More Affordable Materials
Kiss heavy, expensive textbooks goodbye. Because the materials for online language classes are primarily digital, you’ll save money on associated class costs when you choose to study online.
Learn From Anywhere
Today’s student is busier than ever, and with multiple jobs and classes to juggle, it can be difficult to make it from one place to the next quickly enough. Choosing to study at an online language school eliminates the stress of making it to yet another physical classroom and allows you to attend class from wherever is most comfortable and convenient for you (provided that location has an internet connection).
Online language schools also have an ability to offer more diverse and specialized language courses than traditional, in-person language schools. Most traditional schools gear their language instruction towards the generalities of the language, as their students are usually various members of the general public. Online language schools, on the other hand, can offer more specialized language courses geared towards the needs of specific groups of people. For example, at La Paz language Academy, we offer (among other courses) corporate language learning programs that gear language instruction towards the needs of international business professionals.
Personal Attention And Learning Support
Perhaps the biggest advantage of online language schools like La Paz language Academy is our unparalleled ability to offer you personalized learning support.
The instructors of traditional, in-person language courses are often too overwhelmed by their overloaded student roster to be effective help, and finding time outside of class to go over difficulties together can be challenging.
Language learning apps and other digital resources are convenient and can be helpful, but they don’t come with an instructor. That’s why no quality language course is ever offered for free.
Meanwhile, at La Paz Language Academy, we can offer you real-time personal learning support over Zoom. We build plenty of group practice time into our courses for students to help each other grow as speakers, and our instructors are always available for private coaching if need be.
