I really love studying online. I find it so convenient and I could study with everyone not only from my region but also all over the world. Apparently, it is cheaper and saving lots of time than studying in school. Moreover, I had my lesson by greatest professor that is my dream at my school.

In online studies you can choose the right hours for you, as well as you do not have to leave home and spend time on the road.

To start, online learning offers a comfort learning unlike classrooms. Secondly, it provides the marvelous opportunity to learn everywhere as well as anytime. And most importantly, there is zero chance for you to be called out by a teacher if you are learning online.

I think both online and in-person classes have their positive aspects. My university has been offering online classes since May due to the corona virus. I've been doing online classes for six months, and there have been advantages but also disadvantages. One advantage is that I can sleep until just before the class starts. If it is an on-demand class, I can listen to the class over and over again. As a demerit, the point that the connection situation becomes bad, I feel a time lag, and the point that it is a little difficult to submit an assignment is raised as a demerit. I hear some of my friends say that they want to have face-to-face classes and go to college. I am one of those people who would like to go to college and meet my friends, but lately, going to college seems to be a struggle for me. For a long time, I lost my motivation to stay home and study while refraining myself. Now I don't prefer either face-to-face or online classes. I spend my days wondering if my motivation will return once the corona virus subsides.

I like learning online. First of all, it offers an effective method to achieve knowledge in almost every field. Next, I can study at a time that suits my schedule and save traveling time. Then, some online courses are provided with much lower costs and some are even offered for free. Finally, online learning courses are becoming to be more and more popular because of the above advantages.

Submitted by hana ykt on Wed, 08/07/2020 - 08:33

I prefer studying online to face-to-face lessons. Until now, I did not like online because I was not good at machines. However, my school life has changed completely due to the influence of the coronavirus. It often did not work at first, but I felt it suits me after I get used to it. I can immediately spend my non-class time for myself. Recently, I have been living a meaningful life by such as cleaning my room and training muscles during my breaks. Also, I am weak in the morning, so I am very saved everyday. Since I can not go to school, I have more time to spare. This improve my performance for one day. It is also good to study at my pace. Now I am worried about returning to face-to-face lessons because I am too accustomed to this living. But after all, I would like to meet friends and have a wonderful time. The best thing for me to do is to have face-to-face contact with each day of the week. I would like to do more that I can only do now.

I like studying online. There are many reasons. One is I can look and watch class materials and on demand class again and again. Some class isn’t leaving the class materials but many classes, I can look again class materials, so I can deepen my understanding. Furthermore, I think It is the best thing about online classes it is I don’t have to go outside. I don’t have to go to school in very hot outside in summer and I always get motion sick to take the train. I don’t want to take the train, but on-line class is don’t have to take the train. Moreover, I don’t have to wake up early. I can sleep long time. If I have overslept, I will make it on time for class. For that reason, I like on-line classes. of course, there many bad things. My house internet connection is not stable, and the sound quality is bad, so it is difficult to understand what teacher said. I often can’t listen that teacher said. In this way there are bad things but if I have to choose which one, I choose online class. Not take long time for commute is attractive.

It's so helpful. You can meet people from different countries, exchange your experiences with them, learn about their culture and language. Also learning online, in the team can help you to improve each other the part that you are missing because each of member in the team has different skills, views of point, and experiences.

I like that I can study when it suits me. It could be in the evening when my kid's gone to sleep and don't disturb me or in the morning when I'm still fresh-minded and can do my best. Another good point - I can communicate with people from many countries. It's so cool to read their stories, know that we are very different but still have much in common.

What I like about studying online is saving time because I am not going to anywhere I can do it in my own place.

Submitted by gachatama26 on Tue, 23/06/2020 - 12:19

   I think studying online is really wonderful way to learn something. Now, I have been studying all learning online because of Covid-19. And I have been taking online English conversation which talk with Filipino in English for 6 months. For these experiences, I have noticed some attractive points about studying online. At first, I think we can learn and exchange opinions with different people around the world and acquire many knowledges by studying online. For instance, I have learned many things besides English by taking online English conversation such as foreign culture, teacher’s experience and thinking. Studying with people all over the world is like a miracle and really valuable for us. Next, I’m living in Japan and studying English now. So, I didn’t have many opportunities to use English before I started online English conversation. However, I’ve gotten more opportunities to expose English since I began it. Studying online is very useful tool to learn foreign languages. If we do studying online, we can learn efficiently and acquire a lot of things anywhere, anytime, with anyone. And it broadens our world. So, I think we should adopt more and more studying online.

It is more relaxing to study in online rather than studying in institutions. Online studying saves time while in the institutional study there are many things to worry about transportation which is time-consuming. Besides, another thing I like very much in the online study platform there are several people from different cultures and areas and they can have different thoughts which are very helpful when everyone spreads their ideas and thoughts amongst all others in that same platform.

These courses are good. It's a good opportunity to interact with so many students across the globe. It is flexible and convenient because I can learn whenever i have free time. They are interactive. More interactive when it comes to writing, but less when it comes to speaking. Please make more courses about speaking also.

Hello Vidyasagar

Thanks for your feedback. I wanted to let you know that we are working on some new Speaking skills pages. I'm afraid it will be several months before they are ready, but please do keep an eye out for them in the future.

Hi friends! I think studying online gives you several benefits. Firstly, time is so flexible and you can study whenever it is possible. No matter wherever you are, you can get the most updated education. It is so important for developing nations as they have limited access to high quality education at face-to-face classes. On the other hand, you can join the international community and share your ideas and experience.
