鈥淭he English language is so elastic that you can find another word to say the same thing.鈥 -Mahatma Gandhi

English is not going anywhere. Why do we say that? Well, for many reasons such as the fact that English is constantly quoted as the international language and is being taught and learned by millions of people across the globe every day. With over 1.5 billion, that鈥檚 about 20% the world鈥檚 population, people that are fluent in English, there is no other language that has a more far-reaching effect than Britain鈥檚 mother tongue. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that people everywhere still want to continue learning English. English tutors are popping like mushrooms in and around Derby and other UK-based cities to meet the demands of students who need to brush up on their skills.

The Benefits of Learning English

You could say that before you learned English a major part of the world was locked and unavailable to you. English is everywhere. All of the most popular songs, movies, and TV shows are in English. When traveling, the language in common among travelers is almost always English. In commerce and finance, companies recognize the fact that to become a global industry, they must market themselves in the English language. Also, employers greatly value applicants who are fluent in English, even if their company isn鈥檛 international, since it can open doors for workers and help their employers succeed in potential situations. Additionally, some of the most interesting people from other cultures and backgrounds can be met when the language in common is English. All in all, when you learn English as a second language, you become a Swiss Army Knife with many tools that are capable of unlocking various things previously unavailable.

Why People in the UK are Learning English

It might sound quite silly to offer English lessons in cities across the United Kingdom since after all it is the birthplace of the English language. However, in the past 20-30 years or so the UK has become increasingly cosmopolitan welcoming foreigners from many different countries such as India, Poland, Pakistan, China, etc. The sheer number of foreign-born citizens living in large cities in England is so impressive that various trusted resources have London as one of the top ten most cosmopolitan cities in the world. So, as a result of people immigrating to the UK from countries that do not speak English, the demand of English as a Second Language teachers is quite high. However, that is not the primary reason of people taking English classes. Many English natives need to receive additional knowledge of the English language. How鈥檚 that? Various primary and secondary school students in the UK seek the assistance of School English tutors to help them improve their grades and prepare for GCSE or A-Level exams. It鈥檚 important to state that just because you鈥檙e born speaking a language, doesn鈥檛 mean you鈥檒l do well with it academically. Therefore, School English tutors have experience and a thorough knowledge of the ins and outs of the English language to help native students master their exams. It鈥檚 important to state that a lot of native speakers often seek the help of an English tutor to master grammar, reading comprehension, and writing essays.

Online or Face to Face Lessons: Which is Best for You?

Are you on the fence about deciding whether you should take English classes online or in-person at a recommended academic institute? If you are, you definitely aren鈥檛 alone. Before the age of the internet, it wasn鈥檛 even a possibility to learn a language remotely and 鈥渙nline.鈥 However, since the 2010s the learning experience has gone online and become increasingly popular. People can learn everything from hat making to rock climbing and French to drawing via e-learning with only an electronic device and an internet connection. Nonetheless, although learning new academic disciplines online such as English is growing in popularity, that doesn鈥檛 mean it鈥檚 for everybody鈥檚 learning style. For example, if you like the idea of learning essential concepts from the comfort of your own home in your jammies, online lessons are perfect for you. Also, if you are a tech savvy independent learner who wants to save money and time on transportation and parking fees, online tuition is a fit. Furthermore, if you like a more hands-on approach, close direction and motivation from the teacher, the opportunity to meet new people from group classes, and don鈥檛 like the idea of using video calling to acquire a new language, in-person learning is for you! It is important to state that there are still very many schools across the UK, and in Derby, that offer School English classes for students of all ages and learning levels. In the end, it really comes down to your learning preference, and if you鈥檙e still unsure why not try both face-to-face and online courses? There鈥檚 really nothing to lose!
