Just in case you missed anything.

Here are some frequently asked questions about learning to speak English online.

Learning to speak English is similar to studying other subjects, with the additional benefit that learning a language opens up endless possibilities to connect with and discover the world.

When studying English online with EF English Live, you just need to be committed and dedicated, and we'll take care of the rest. Through our platform you'll be learning with our dedicated native speaking English teachers who will support you every step of the way.

You will also have access to group lessons during which you can converse with other students, always in English.

The first thing to remember is that everyone learns to speak English at a different pace. If you want to learn as much as possible in a short time then you can try the following tips:

1. Don't be afraid to try: part of the learning process is to try, and make some mistakes while doing so.

2. Speak English at all times: very often it's not the lack of grammar as much as the ability to describe what is around us or what is happening. The brain is like a muscle that needs training and speaking English at every opportunity (even alone) will help you develop your language skills without even realizing it.

3. Expose yourself as much as possible to spoken English: reading helps to improve your vocabulary, but hearing English words spoken in real-life situations will help you know how and when to use them, pronounce them and recall them when you need them.

4. Body language is important: seeing how people move and the gestures they make while speaking English will help you understand and memorize new words more easily.

5. Try to interact with a native or bilingual person who can give you suggestions, advice and correct you when you make mistakes. EF English Live takes all of these elements and more into account in our online English courses. With us you can speak English online whenever you want, wherever you are, 24/7.

With EF English Live's study plans, you'll have access to group lessons and private lessons where you can practice speaking English as much as you want. And during private lessons you will interact with a native speaking teacher who will encourage you to speak English and develop your language skills according to your goals.

Absolutely. Our group classes give you the opportunity to talk with, and listen to, students from different countries who have the same English level as you. These live sessions will help you to further practice English conversation and apply what you have learned so far.

We value social learning because it's enjoyable and helps to keep you motivated.
