Take English lessons online with a private tutor

Online English Classes Wherever You Are

Even though there are 11 official languages in South Africa, English is the most widely spoken language as well as the most widely used medium for education. If you know some English, but don’t want to be at a disadvantage in high school or university, then taking an extra English course online could be your answer.

You may have completed your formal education only to find that your business English is not up to scratch in the workplace. To progress in your career why not consider online English classes? 

Finding an English course online will not be difficult with a random internet search, but this could take time and you may not be guaranteed the teacher's credentials.

You could also use Superprof to find a private English tutor online where you will have the benefits of knowing that they are recommended by the website and where you could get your first lesson for free.

Finding an English Tutor Online

In South Africa where there is so much cultural and language diversity, there are many choices when it comes to the type of English teacher you could find. Even first language English learners will often find that they need English support during their academic years.

Developing strong English skills is one of the most important investments any individual can make for themselves. Not only is it essential for education and work, but for general life and travel too.  

On Superprof, you could find an online English tutor – all you need is a webcam and a robust internet connection.  

Regardless of your needs, there are English tutors available for all levels of ability on Superprof. From wanting to improve your grammar, spelling, and vocabulary to Grade 12 literature or needing a tutor to help you with university-level socio-linguistics, there are options for every need and every student.

Find an English Tutor Online: The Benefits

For young people, learning a new language encourages cognitive, social, and linguistic development. It helps them to better-communicate concepts, breaks down social barriers, encourages collaboration, and boosts confidence.

Even when studied as a second language, online English classes can develop communication skills and critical thinking.

The benefits of finding an English tutor online are vast. Besides assisting you with your language curriculum, it could help to improve your confidence, social life or even prepare you for a job interview. 

Why English Can Be Difficult

Thanks to our unique cultural diversity, many of the foreign visitors to South Africa do not understand our interesting slang and pronunciation. So if you find yourself living in South Africa as a foreigner, taking conversational online English classes could help.

Technology, which is rapidly changing the way we communicate is another reason why many learners struggle with English at school. From as young as the toddler who spends time on an iPad, children everywhere are spending less time refining their language skills through books. This can have a negative impact on concentration, vocabulary, and even handwriting development.

Unfortunately, this trend is made worse with the increased use of screens for amusement.

Everybody is reading less because we have become conditioned to read short social media posts instead of articles and books that take us deeper into the kind of subject matter that will develop analytical thinking. 

An outcome of this is that many young people now look to digital messaging, online friends, and influencers to hone a worldview instead of discovering it through literature. 

Added to this is the rapid decline of vocabulary in favour of emojis as a method of communication. And let’s be honest, predictive text is not going to help anyone to spell better.    

The Need for Private Tuition

Being able to communicate fluently in both written and spoken English is one of the greatest skills we can possess and also pass on to others. Today, with the world being so digitally connected, it is more important than ever to be confident in English which is a global language. English is the most widely spoken language in the world (followed by Mandarin Chinese) so it goes without saying it is the most beneficial one to learn!

Whatever your reasons for improving or learning English, one of the best ways to go about it is to find a private English tutor online. There is no doubt that private tuition is the fastest way to progress in a language, but not only that, you will be able to have your lessons tailored to your unique goals for becoming confident in English. 

Superprof tutors come from a range of backgrounds. From university professors and English language students to those who specialise in teaching English as a foreign language you are bound to find an English course online to suit your needs and budget.
