Stay positive! This is what we hear from our parents, peers and even our teachers all the time. We understand that this is not an easy thing to do, especially when learning a foreign language. Learning English online has been popular for quite a while now, and non-native speakers of English are taking advantage of this. On the other hand, virtual learning still has some challenges which can lead to a negative environment for the student, the teacher and the class if they are not recognized and resolved.
1. FOR THE STUDENT
Being in a 45 or 50-minute class online can become boring for a student and this prevents effective learning. Some students would rather watch their favorite videos online than do an English course. Even so, a lot of non-native speakers are still searching for English courses to take online. Why is that so? It is usually because they need another language to achieve their goals. When you set a goal and empower yourself, you will be able to develop your skills in English plus the efficiency and productivity needed in the class. Also, do not bring your personal problems to the class; try to set them aside to avoid negative feelings while you are studying.
2. FOR THE TEACHER
3. FOR THE CLASS
A positive attitude in the class can be achieved through a good student-teacher relationship. What I mean by this is, when the teacher is professional and supportive, the class will be valued by the student in return. The readiness to learn the subject everyday will result in a more effective and productive class. In short, a positive outcome for learning English will be achieved by the positive attitude of the teacher and the student.
