normal face to face learning. With the best technology available, sound and image quality are exceptional.
Obviously, the student also needs a reasonable internet connection and I recommend a good set of headphones
with a microphone. Finding a quiet place to do the class where you won't be disturbed is also recommendable.
Here are some of the benefits of online classes:
1) You don't need to move from your home or office - no time is wasted traveling
2) Now technology has improved so much and also internet speed, there is little if no difference between online and classes in person.
3) With ebooks it’s so easy to share and reference resources
4) "Zoom" (online platform) has so many advanced features: you can write live on the whiteboard and explain things more clearly, highlighting and writing on ebooks, sharing the computer’s sound. There is nothing you can’t do.
4) Online learning allows you to jump between materials more quickly. For example, to look up the definition or translation of a word, reference a video or interactive exercise.
5) There are lots of online interactive materials available that make learning more dynamic. These are much easier to use if both the student and teacher have their own connected screens.
6) Using headphones make it easier for students, especially beginners to hear the nuances of pronunciation, and are able to modify the volume, something which is not possible with a normal conversation.
7) Using reading apps such as kindle for computers enable a simple one touch translation and definition, making it faster to check words.
Some of our student’s comments
Lo recomiendo a todo aquel que necesite perder
a vergüenza a hablar en inglés"
"I'm learning so much with Chris.
I recommend him to anyone who wants to lose
their feeling of embarrassment speaking English."
recibir clases de conversación y
encontré en Chris la solución
perfecta. Prepara clases amenas y
dinámicas y se nota que disfruta con
su trabajo. 100 % recomendable"
"I was searching for a native teacher
for conversation classes and found the perfect
solution in Chris. He prepares fun,
dynamic classes, and you can tell he enjoys
his job. 100% recommendable"
una vez a la semana. No lo conocíamos y lo contratamos
por internet y puedo decir que fué un acierto.
Es un profesor que no plantea el inglés de una forma estricta,
se amolda a las necesidades del alumno y sobre todo hace que
el momento del inglés no sea un suplicio, sino un momento
esperado de la semana. La verdad es que es una persona muy
divertida y muy válida para enseñar."
"We are a couple that has a weekly class with Chris. We didn’t know
him before, as we contracted him via the internet, and I must say
that it was a good decision. He doesn’t enforce English in a strict
manner, but adapts to the student’s needs and above all makes
the moment of class something you look forward to.
The truth is that he is great fun and very capable as a teacher."

muy divertidas,siempre hace ejercicios totalmente
diferentes, la duracion de la clase es toda en ingles
y a parte de eso yo voy sola y eso se nota porque
practicas muchissimo,manda deberes a casa y corrije
tanto los deberes como cuando una gran persona
y un buenisimo profesor!, yo estoy muy contenta
y estoy aprendiendo muchisimo.”
My English teacher is great! His classes are a lot of fun,
and he always does different types of activities. The whole
class is in English and with this you notice a big difference
as you practise so much; he also gives and corrects homework.
He is a great person, teacher and I’m really happy
to be learning so much.
a very good experience that I would recommend to anyone.
I spent three months at the end of which I noticed a
breakthrough at the time to talk.
The classes were so much fun, every day passed very quickly
and without realising it was time to go out and every day he had
something new and different to do and to teach.
In addition, the classes were very dynamic, with music, games
and many activities to motivate us to speak.
As I said, I personally would recommend Chris to other people,
besides being a nice person he is a good teacher.
