Do you already know basic grammar rules and sentence structures? Have you already studied English for years at school but still can’t speak fluently? The solution is to work with a Skype English Conversation Partner who is a native English speaker.
A Skype English conversation partner is ideal for English learners who are at an intermediate level. Through meaningful online practice via Skype, you can boost your English speaking to that next, naturally fluent level.
So why is a Skype English conversation partner more valuable than a traditional English teacher for intermediate level English learners? There a few important things to consider here.
The best way to improve your speaking skills is to engage in conversation with others who speak English fluently. This broadens your ability to learn not only the verbal communication aspect, but also non-verbal communication, which includes the tone of voice, pace that you speak and body language.
A traditional English teacher will be great if you want to learn just theory. For example, if you want to learn what irregular verbs are, then you must find a traditional English teacher to teach this. But if you want to learn how to use irregular verbs correctly in oral communications, a Skype English conversation partner is more suitable.
When it comes to becoming truly fluent in English, the key is to practice speaking with native English users. If you are able to speak with native speakers you will learn a lot of nuances about the language you would not otherwise learn.
One thing that often defines native English speakers from those new to the language is their ability to easily use and understand slang vocabulary or idiomatic expressions. Discovering words or sayings that go beyond the standard dictionary or language lessons can be as fun as it is educational. A Skype English conversation partner who is a native speaker will help you learn idioms and slang in a natural way. This is something you will not be able to do with a traditional teacher who only uses textbook examples.
So if you want to learn REAL English, sign up with a Skype English Conversation Partner:
One of the biggest hurdles for non-native English speakers is their fear and embarrassment. You speak English best when you are comfortable with the person you are talking to. It is important to help the students feel comfortable and confident, and then their mind will be more free and their English will be better.
A Skype English conversation partner is better at this than a traditional teacher. A Skype English conversation partner will drive the lesson in a more relaxed manner, where the focus in more on speaking practice than on grammar rules. This will help the English learner open up more and build confidence.
In our Skype English classes, we would first make students feel comfortable trying new things with their English and being fearless in expressing themselves, even when they aren’t sure that they’re correct. Just like with learning dancing or swimming, confidence is an important aspect of learning English speaking and a Skype English conversation partner is the best option for that.
