Skype Will Be Tomorrow’s English Learning Revolution
Until the invention of Skype, there was really only one way of teaching live
English courses, namely in a classroom with a teacher and a number of
students varying from 1 to 20 or so. There needed to be a physical contact
between students and teachers who had to meet in an office and bring along
all their books, folders, CDs, and other pedagogical materials.
But with the use of Skype, English lessons are on the verge of being
revolutionized. The classroom is becoming increasingly virtual as students
start taking their online English courses at home via Skype. No more carrying
heavy books and folders around, no more wasting time going from work to
English academies, just a simple click from your computer at home and voilà.
One of the pioneers in this burgeoning industry is a company called Break
Into English which hires and more importantly trains highly qualified native
English teachers to use an extremely dynamic method that keeps students
challenged at all times with activities that focus mainly on speaking and
For students taking English classes that often last several months, this means
hours and hours of personal time saved. Instead of waiting in traffic and
looking for parking spots, students will have more time for themselves. This a
crucial advantage for people who already have long working hours and cannot
spend enough time with their family and friends.
The same applies for teachers who will be able to give all their online English
lessons from home, needing only a high-speed Internet connection and a
specific Skype-based training. Such a training, which demands only a
moderate level of computer literacy, will show the teachers how to use
modern technology to make their Skype lessons more appealing than
traditional ones, for example by using Skype’s instant messaging box as a
whiteboard, excerpts of YouTube videos as listening activities, or newspaper
websites as a constant source of reading and writing exercises.
English Classes via Skype Will Help You Save Money As Well
Apart from allowing students and teachers alike to avoid time-consuming trips
from work or home to the classroom and vice versa, there is one other
important benefit of learning English via Skype: the price. English academies
operating solely on the Internet do not need to pay for any office space, and
thus they can offer quality lessons at much more attractive prices than
traditional language academies. In expensive cities such as Paris, Zurich or
Geneva, English classes in traditional academies can be up to four or even
five times more expensive than English classes online. The best way for
students not yet familiar with Skype lessons is to sign up for a trial lesson and
see what it’s all about (http://www.breakintoenglish.com/trial-lesson/).
For these two essential reasons (saving a large amount of time and money),
we at Break Into English are offering quality courses at a reasonable price

learning a language on Skype, they will start taking more and more English
classes online, from the comfort of their homes or offices, thus significantly
