1. ENROLL IN AN ONLINE CLASS THAT PROVIDES “REAL” COURSE We understand that you are paying to take this online course, but you have to make sure of getting the real value out of your class. Also, make sure that the curriculum would give you a clear direction of improvement.
2. SET YOUR GOALS Set goals at the beginning of your course, do a self-check weekly. In a face-to-face setting, your teacher always reminds you about your homework to be done, to pass the test and frequent checking of your knowledge about the lessons. In online learning, make sure that you do the same to achieve your goals.
3. PRACTICE TIME MANAGEMENT Your flexible schedule is your advantage at the moment, but it does not mean that you are free from time management! One secret to use your time effectively is by avoiding distractors. Post a schedule of your classes or make a task-to-do list each day, to ensure that you do not miss even a single class and you finish your homework on time.
4. ASSESS YOUR IMPROVEMENT Online classes are an excellent option to fulfill your goals as an English learner. In your free time, scan your lessons for a thorough review. Assess your improvement with your teacher and repeat the learning process if necessary. Though challenges are still evident, following the above advice can help you be successful throughout your course.
