With the hectic work schedules of everyday life in Singapore, it can be a struggle to maintain a proper work-life balance amidst the demands of one’s career. Needless to say, for those in the process of learning English while managing work deadlines, you may realise it’s getting harder to stick to the traditional classroom setting and attend physical lessons at times. Especially with the COVID pandemic, online English lessons may seem like a more practical option, more so if you’re already working from home. To cater to your needs, here are some of the options available for you:
1. Online private lessons
For starters, if you love the idea of learning in the comfort of your home, you may prefer having online private lessons with your teacher. It’s an extremely flexible option that enables you to make the most of your time while learning at a pace that suits you. If you’re working from home, you can easily tune in to your English lesson online and get started instantly with your teacher.
Here at ULC, on top of sticking to your online sessions, you also have the option of switching from online and offline at your convenience. This means that when you have more time, you can also choose to attend physical classes. Whether you prefer online or face-to-face interaction, these hybrid English lessons can suit your personal schedule as and when it’s needed.
2. Youtube videos
To support your learning goals, a simple search on Youtube will introduce you to a plethora of videos focusing on a wide range of concepts for additional guidance. Depending on the duration of the video, you can expect digestible content that allows you to learn the material at your convenience. Simply look up what you want to work on and learn from there. Especially if you are already facing difficulties while learning English, you can choose videos with a specific focus on the areas you want to improve on. On top of that, it’s easy to go back and revisit past concepts to brush up on your language as and when you want to.
At ULC, we post weekly 5 minutes English learning videos on our Youtube channel to complement our textbook learning. With regular updates from our team of experienced teachers, you can get your dose of learning wherever you are. Through these short video segments, you can easily incorporate the habit of watching these video tutorials into your routine – and most importantly, not lose track of what you’ve already learnt.
3. Online zoom lessons
To take it to the next level, we also provide free online Zoom lessons for our current students to help explain difficult concepts. This means that you don’t necessarily have to physically be in class in order to get your questions answered. If you have any queries, you can clarify them with your teacher over on Zoom. Along with other students online, this is a platform that allows everyone to contribute and share their opinions, enhancing your understanding. With high-quality resources and advice all at your fingertips, you can achieve your English learning goals more efficiently.
For non-ULC students, you can also watch our live lessons from Youtube to help with your own self-learning.
