Online learning is fast becoming the definitive way to learn. Virtual classrooms and online chats can be used as a way for students to communicate with each other outside of the real classroom and polish up their skills.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Whether you love writing your own blog or reading others, blogging is a fun and informative way to continue learning after lessons are done. After all, what better way to pick up a language than through an interactive blog packed full of helpful tips and exercises?
Language schools, such as London based school St George International, use blogs to supplement their lessons and give students and prospective learners a daily dose of extra-curricular knowledge. St George has just revamped its hugely successful blog to help students out with their classes online.
The blog, which is updated daily with posts written by the school’s teachers, keeps students up to date with the latest news from London and around the world. It uses current topics, such as social issues like the London riots, to encourage learning. There is a strong focus on grammar and vocabulary in each and every blog post and its interactive and multi-media platform uses film, podcasts and questionnaires to facilitate students’ progression.
Regular competitions offer prospective students and those already studying at SGI the chance to win free English courses through answering a quiz correctly. The English Blog is all about taking the skills learnt during school classes and putting them to use in a fun, social and interactive way. The Student Life in London section of the blog gives both students and teachers the chance to leave comments and share views and information about the city. Students can find out what social events are taking place each week and read reviews about local shows and entertainment before they decide to take part.
St George International is well-established language school based in the Central London district of Marylebone. It has been open since 1962 and offers a diverse range of English and Foreign Languages courses. Students can chose from daytime or evening classes, intensive courses or a more relaxed pace of learning. There are courses in general English, academic and business English. The school can organise residential accommodation for overseas students in various Central London locations.
For those looking to learn a foreign language, for example with French courses London with St Georges study is a good option. Or if you’re looking for a pre-holiday Spanish course London is a great place to start as it is home to so many great language schools and native Spanish speakers.
