Hi! Looks like I'm the first one here so … hi to everyone who joins the course and nice to meet you! Good luck with the course and see you in the next lesson!


1. Keep your introduction short and clear.

2. Say hello and give a little bit of information about yourself. Don’t say anything too private or personal.

3. You can say what you hope to get or learn.

4. Wish people good luck.

5. You don’t have to write full sentences.

6. You might use more exclamation marks (!) than in formal writing because it looks friendly.

Studying online that I don't need to dress up or make up and I feel really comfortable when I learn in my personal space. In addition, studying online doesn't require me to go so far to study at school.
Please correct my grammar if I was wrong somewhere.

Online learning is very convenient, you can study anytime, anywhere. The main advantage is that it is very flexible and can save a lot of time. Imagine that you do not need to go to a special location to attend a class. This is really important for those who have a family and need to take care of their children. Another benefit of studying online is that you can keep your job while studying. It is not easy for a working people to quit his job and study full-time. If you take online courses, you can keep both your work and study. You can also choose overseas online courses, so you do not need to leave your friends, your family and your current life.

Learning online is not the good way , though. Because I have no chance to meet my teacher and classmates to discuss and talk about our lesson. When we learn online, the time is limited even to not comfortable to share ideas each other.

What I like the most about studying online is the chance of learning from home which helps you avoid a waste of time commuting. In addition, I think it is also worth considering the fact that many online courses bring you the possibility of choosing the time when you want to do it, therefore you can choose whether you want to do it in the morning, in the afternoon or in the evening; depending on what time best suits you. Finally, another important advantage to point out is that most of the time you can manage how fast you want to move forward with the course. Each person has its own way of learning and some may learn faster than others, so online courses are good for those who prefer to take some time to better understand each concept.

Submitted by Moon Wathan on Sun, 11/10/2020 - 15:01
