By Hebe Adventures

English has become an essential language. Have you thought about learning with a private English teacher? For your career, travel, pleasure or just the challenge, discover the most effective English language tool.

How about learning English with a private tutor online? These days, who doesn't have busy days and would like a little more flexibility to be able to learn a language? This is possible thanks to an online private teacher. Learn English wherever and whenever you want. A real added value and a real source of motivation for your everyday English learning.

5 good reasons to hire an online English teacher

Having the exclusive attention of a private English teacher remains the most effective and fastest English language tool for improving your language level. And there are 5 reasons for this:

  1. The private English teacher can adapt to your pace, your needs and your desires, whether for online tutoring or to complete your CV;
  2. He can target your weaknesses and areas for improvement for a tailor-made approach that allows you to make rapid progress;
  3. You speak freely in a benevolent setting, without blocking or fear of ridicule or mistakes;
  4. You have the full attention of your private English teacher who can answer your questions in real time and give you appropriate advice;
  5. You are free to manage your schedule by choosing the time slots that suit you for your lessons.

What is a good English tutor?

But it is not enough to give private English lessons in video to become a good online teacher. Certain qualities are essential. A good online English teacher:

  • Speaks as much as possible in English even to give explanations;
  • Covers all aspects of language, from comprehension to expression, from oral to written, including vocabulary and grammar;
  • Has clear and intelligible pronunciation;
  • Let the student express himself before intervening to correct him;
  • Listens and does not judge his students.

Video English lessons: what are the disadvantages of this English language tool?

What is the difference between a face-to-face teacher and an online English teacher? After the advantages of distance learning, what are the disadvantages? Of course, to ensure smooth learning, certain technical conditions must be ensured. A good internet connection is essential. Others argue that you have to stay motivated to turn on your computer or tablet when it's time to join an online group English course. But isn't it the same thing when you have to get up to take physics lessons?

So is it a good idea to learn English online? Of course. There are no more disadvantages than in other learning configurations. But there are definitely more advantages. Everything is a question of organization and habits. You need to establish an effective routine for your English lessons at home. The private teacher is above all there to give you the keys to exploit. It is then up to you to put them into practice as soon as you have the opportunity.

It goes without saying that students cannot rely on lessons alone to progress quickly, whatever their level. A trip to London, a Jack Kerouac classic, a VOST series or Bruno Mars' latest hit… It doesn't take much to be comfortable in English!

A real language immersion in Ireland thanks to the HEBE Adventures English language tool

With HEBE Adventures, most of our children on language exchange in Ireland do not speak the language of their exchange country at all. After the first week in the country, we ask that all access to their own language be eliminated (books, digital applications, etc…). The children will experience real immersion by living with their exchange family. They will be part of the family, like the other children in the family. They will have the same rights and the same duties. Thanks to this immersion (family, country, language), the children are able to hold a normal conversation after six months. Read more about it on our results page.

With this English language tool, we have put in place rules that seem strict in order to allow children to live their adventure in immersion. Our families tell us how much these rules have enabled them to manage their language exchange and the children to be able to learn their new language.

Language stays in Ireland are the best solution for your child to discover the country's culture while speaking English on a daily basis. He will then be directly in contact with a way of life that he did not know or knew very little about before. Orally, significant progress can then be noted from the second week of the stay in general. A very enriching experience from all points of view that your child will remember forever!

At Hebe, our very complete range of language stays for children and teenagers allows you to make your choice throughout the year. You can be sure that your child will benefit from a program perfectly adapted to his requirements as well as to yours. You can go directly to our HEBE Adventures website to compare our language courses in Ireland.

So what are you waiting for to find the ideal language stay for your son or daughter? Join us now.
