   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.

Hello! I'm Dilnoza from Bukhara,Uzbekistan.I enjoy studying online.Good luck

Submitted by eshan.saif on Fri, 05/06/2020 - 21:19

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.

There are some reasons to like studing online : 1- Win time that we can spend in traffic. 2- fix the course with tutors according to our schedule. 3- We can feel some freedom to explain our circumstances.

Submitted by Vidyasagar on Tue, 11/02/2020 - 09:39

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.

All the best

I like studying online because It's on my time. But the British council doesn't take it very engaging because they didn't provide suggestions or correct the mistake in the comment section. So, I don't feel any motivation to give comments.

Hello Mahfuzur Rahman

We would love to be able to provide feedback for our users, but I'm afraid that we just have the resources to be able to offer such a service for free. Please know that we're happy to help with short, specific questions about anything on any of our pages, so if you ever such a question, please do ask it here.

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.
