Hi everyone! I'm from Qatar. Nice to meet you. It's my first time studying online. I hope to learn a lot from the course and from all of you!

Welcome everyone. I'm Canadian but living in Scotland. The last time I studied anything was forty years ago … I'm a bit nervous! Good luck, everyone!

Hello. I'm so happy to be doing this course. I've finished two other online courses this year so I'm looking forward to my third. I'm from Vietnam by the way. Looking forward to meeting you all!

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!

Tips

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.

Hi Everyone! what I like about study online is that I can take class anytime anywhere with internet. also It's good for saving time more than commuting to school.

I am from HongKong. Traffic jam is heavy at my city. Study online help me reduce transporting time.

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.

I like to study online because I can do everything at home. I don`t have to lose time by transport. So is more easy time manage.
