British English lessons via Skype
Today, knowledge of English is essential if you want to be part of the global community and have your finger on the pulse in our modern age of information.
British English lessons via Skype offer students the opportunity to study regularly with a native speaker, regardless of their geographical location. Skype English lessons with UK tutors also provide greater flexibility at a lower price – making native tuition more accessible to a wider audience.
British English lessons via Skype are an exciting alternative to traditional classroom education. Interactive media, links to interesting websites, photographs, videos, and social networks are just some of the many available tools that can be used in and around Skype English lessons. Many subjects besides English are now being taught online and this trend is becoming increasingly popular due to its cost-effectiveness and the fact that many learners lead busy, active lives and need to save time.
While there are several distinct varieties of the language, British English still remains the classical, prestige form and often dominates in academic circles. At OTUK, all of our online teachers are qualified native speakers of British English, our school is based in the UK and we specialise in teaching British English via Skype. Our students come from all over the world and are from a range of professional and academic backgrounds.
Our Skype English lessons are flexible and our online courses cover a broad range of specialist topics – what is commonly called “English for special purposes”. Many of our British English teachers have backgrounds in business, tourism, academia, and other areas. This is a great advantage as they bring more than just native knowledge of English into the online classroom. Bilingualism is also something we encourage in our staff at OTUK and most of our British teachers speak more than one language.
