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.

   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.
