I’d do it all over again. It has been about three years that I have been living this new studying and learning life experience. The new millennium brought upon me a better contact with technology and a new learning way, different that what I had ever experienced. It’s the study of the English language from a distance, through Skype, as if I were in a classroom.
I was happy, of course, to experience this method with the guidance and care of Danise Grangeiro, who founded with great knowledge, not long ago, this new teaching method of the English language.
I can’t say I am capable of speaking English fluently, because that depends on the talent, and mostly, on the immersion in the spoken English environment, however, I have relatively easily gained abilities such as reading and writing texts. This way, in a short studying period, I prepared two booklets with essays that have been presented in class and evaluated by Danise.
Therefore, if anyone asks me how valid the course through skype is, asks about the results acquired and my level of satisfaction, I would say that I would do it all over again. Besides, you take advantage of the comfort of being home or in your office, without the need to commute nor the imposed stress related to traffic in the cities.
I’m sure Danise’s students thank her initiative in promoting such courses, as they are admirers of her ability to lead these classes, in which she does in such a dynamic way that keeps the student focused and interested. The themes of each class are always adequate to the student’s intellectual and professional profile, in a way that life and English class seem to be one single reality. Therefore, in an unnoticeable way, you learn to think and say in English the things you live each day. English classes through skype, I repeat, are effective and extremely pleasant, particularly when someone has the chance to have Danise as a tutor.
I apologize to my dear teacher for being so honest when I talk about her classes through Skype. However, the positive result depends, like she always says, of the adherence to this new method at a distance that I consider extraordinary. (free translation from Portuguese)
