Babel’s online offering is not about gimmicks or game-playing. We offer high-quality lessons at a convenient time, tailored to your own specific goals, with enthusiastic support and motivation from a native-speaking personal tutor.
Our tutors love what they do and have been teaching for years. They are passionate about sharing their knowledge and expertise and with their motivation you are much more likely to stick to a language programme than working alone with language learning software.
How Does It Work?
Each lesson lasts 45 minutes. At the outset, we invite you to join your tutor for a free live online demo and short trial session during which they will assess your current language level and identify your language needs and goals. Following this, we will propose an individual learning programme to you, based on your language level and study requirements.
If you or your HR team are happy to go ahead, we will:
Each lesson will focus on oral communication and by hearing your tutor speak, and joining in a ‘live’ conversation, your confidence will build. You will learn phrases that can be used immediately, colloquialisms, sentence structure, pronunciation, grammar and spelling. Our tutor may also have emailed you a PDF prior to the lesson for writing practice or word games.
By using some of Skype’s advanced features, we can use the instant messaging to correct spellings and for text chat, and share files to discuss during the lesson. Screen sharing means our tutors can give slide presentations during a lesson. And for fun, we show subtitled television programs or movies when you are in need of a break from intense learning.
For ‘real-life’ teaching, we use online whiteboard tools that our tutors can share with you to edit documents. You can also view webpages together and write all over them, as well as upload images and documents.
At the end of the lesson, your tutor will send you homework and feedback. This will include a list of (corrected) mistakes which were made in class and new words that came up. It may include dialogues and written exercises that our tutor will have prepared for you.
"We've just had our second lesson with Jaeran, both have been great. She's a brilliant teacher and giving us a great insight in to the language in the short time we have, before our trip overseas." Jack Morton Worldwide
