However, there are situations that require the learner to make rapid progress in a very short time and this is where intensive English courses online can help. If you are preparing for an exam or job interview, you will need targeted training to achieve your short-term goals. Getting ready for an important presentation, trade fair or business trip are also good reasons for taking an intensive English course by Skype.
At OTUK we believe that frequent contact with English is the key to acquiring fluency in the language. Therefore, we strive to keep our online English lessons short (45 minutes) but recommend students take several classes per week to maximise contact time with their native English teacher. Our intensive English courses online offer learners the opportunity to have Skype lessons up to 7 times per week with small study assignments to be completed between sessions. These intensive programmes are ideal for those who need to achieve good results in the shortest possible time.
Unless you have a specific learning goal in mind, then an intensive English programme is probably not the way forward. When improving general English it may be a wiser choice to spread your resources over a longer time frame to ensure steady progress and regular lessons (2-3 per week). However, if you know what you have to achieve with your English and are facing an exam date or deadline, you will certainly benefit from targeted training with a native English teacher.

Summer is a great time to think about making that extra effort to improve your English skills. Most people tend to have more time over the summer months as work slows down, the weather improves and the kids are on holiday. Many schools in the UK offer residential courses, but these are too expensive for the majority of students. Intensive English courses online with OTUK are a great cost-saving alternative and provide focused, one-to-one training with a Skype English tutor. Online programmes of this type cover a wide range of subject areas and levels so there is a course to suit everyone.
