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.

I like studying online courses, Because we can save the time for transportation, the studying time more flexible , and the tuition is cheaper than face to face courses

Last year, I have got a English course , and now I am learning English online on British Council

One of the reasons I like about studying online is that you can learn or improve your skills from everywhere , anytime you would like to. It does not matter who you are , where you are at and it will save our time and energy as well.

When studying online it is required to introduce yourself to colleagues to create a friendly environment because there is no physical interaction with them so make sure to be friendly before learn anything.

The best thing to study online is that I’m able to manage the study time at my own pace and it allows me to organise better my personal schedule, also I don’t spend time travelling to get to a University or any other school or learning institution. 

Thanks for the lesson.

Great site!
