Skype classes 2018

Great news everyone!!!

If you have checked our website recently you may already have seen this. Scroll down for details!

  • 12-lesson courses available
  • 2 different levels: B1/B2 and B2/C1
  • Every Friday with 2 different timetables available: 16:45 – 17:30h or 18:00 – 18:45h
  • 9 students per class maximum!
  • All lessons have been designed by ES teachers to ensure maximum quality!
  • Limited vacancies!

These lessons are the result of the students’ petition of reinforcing the concepts learnt in class at home as well as the relentless introduction of technology in all aspects of our daily life. The advantages of online classes are multiple:

  1. You can learn English by attending a presential class guided by one of our teachers (who may even be your own ES teacher) from home
  2. You will improve your listening skills with the extra challenge of not relying on body language.
  3. You will improve your writing and summarizing skills, as you’ll contact the teacher in the ‘question time’ via chat.
  4. You will share the class with 8¬†other students who have your same level, and the answers to all the questions in the class, as well as the teachers’ written explanations, will stay in the chat for future reference.

So, what are you waiting for? Ask for information at reception in any of our schools before we run out of vacancies, the future is waiting for you!

Today I’d like to address a recurrent students’ issue. Often, when our students go to the UK they come back a little bit discouraged because they say they didn’t understand a word of what people told them! Although this seems to be a common head scratcher there’s a very simple explanation to it! I often tell my students that the English language is an alive language, it’s not fixed, every month new words start to be used in different regions of the country and it is just not possible to keep track of all of them! It’s not that you don’t understand the language, what happens is that the different accents and slang¬†words make it more difficult! That’s why, from very low levels, at Euroschool we insist on the importance of understanding meaning by context, because English is relentlessly growing.
