You should also have an iPod or equivalent MP3 player and a headset/microphone for taking part in online voice chats.
How much time do I need to learn to speak good English?
Our students speak English during each lesson. If you are a Beginner, you will start with simple greetings and short phrases, and by the end of your first lesson you will already be speaking.
Time that you will need to become fluent in English depends completely on you. If you are active during your lessons, if you are responsible about doing your homework, you will quickly get ahead.
The advantage of education at “Language Live .Net” is that every lesson is conducted exclusively in English. Your audition and speech skills are trained every minute, which means your improvement is going to be much faster.
Do I have to do homework?
Yes, you do. However some people may not have time for homework or their
only goal of the course is a conversation with the teacher – native speaker,
then they opt not to have homework. Homework is optional.
I have a few friends and we would like to take classes together, is it possible?
Yes, it is. Your group cannot exceed 4 people. The cost of group lessons you can find out in our section ‘Lessons”. Group organizer receives a 10% discount for the entire course of education.
If I skip a lesson…
If you can’t be present for class for any reason, it is not a big deal. We will reschedule your class to the time that’s convenient for you. However, you should notify your coordinator 24 hours in advance.
What is better: a headset or external speakers with microphone?
We recommend purchasing a reliable USB headset. It is more convenient; it helps
reduce the outside noise and allows to avoid echoing. With this option your teacher
has the ability to hear your speech in the best quality and correct your pronunciation mistakes.
