Are English classes right for me?
English courses are for people who want to test their English language skills in a variety of situations.
Here are some simple factors to help you decide if this is the best option for you
- Am I a people person? You will be working with a diverse group of learners who want to improve their English language skills. That’s why English classes are supplemented by people who are sociable and know how to communicate with new people. If you are not very social, you may want to consider taking an English course to familiarize yourself with the language.
- Do you like architecture? In English classes, you will observe certain types of structures. In many English classes, you will study a textbook. You can also use lesson plans prepared by your teacher. This means that you do not have the choice of taking classes, which many people do.
- Do I have to learn English grammar? Historically, English classes have focused on grammar and getting a good grasp of it. This approach makes the course more accessible to beginners.
- Is my schedule varied? You will need to attend a number of classes each week. Ask yourself if you will have time to choose a class.
