Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

🌆 How to learn English in Ottawa and what does it take in terms of commitment?

Besides self-study using mobile applications, you have a few primary options for learning English interactively in Ottawa. First, universities and community colleges are an especially good idea for in-state residents. Also, read about centers for continuing education and professional studies (they are less pricey.) Your second possibility can be local specialized language academies that are better priced and flexible in schedule and requirements. Third, not-for-profit learning centers usually offer cheaper group and more expensive in-person courses. Last, you can choose a private English tutor in Ottawa. If flexibility is key, you can compare local Ottawa and online English tutors.

🎟 Is it cheap to learn English and what does a lesson with a tutor of English cost?

For university and college courses you can estimate English course cost as 1/10th of the yearly tuition (one course is usually 3 out of 30 credit hours offered) to get the price of fifty or so class hours each semester. Language schools and individual English tutors charge $30-55 an hourly group lesson, with private classes starting around $50 or more. Some of the less pricey English tutors can be found online, with costs on Preply averaging 15 and tutor rates varying widely based on tutor geography, availability and student demand. Customer review average for English lessons on Preply is 4.89 out of 5 stars.

📚 What are the requirements for English language skill level to sign up for a course?

When considering college and learning center classes be prepared to show a language test profeciency score or take an entrance test to determine your level. 'Canned' classes vary widely in terms of textbook quality, homework commitment and exams, so research all such requirements in advance. With personal English tutors you can find reviews for whom the tutor is effective with and which other expertise they make available (like instruction for beginners, etc.) For better flexibility, choose a tutor from a wide selection of those teaching online.

🔥 Why is English not easy and are there ways to learn it more effectively?

One-size-fits-all language instruction practiced in schools is not the most effective way to learn English. In reality, you can gain basic English fluency in 300 hours from zero knowledge. Studying and getting feedback 5 hours a week you will be able to understand many expressions, speak on some level, do most everyday tasks in about a year. Relocating is not a practical option for everyone, so online classes are a fast and fun way of acquiring the basic knowledge of English. After gaining basic skills, online marketplaces like Preply have English tutors who specialize in intensive classes for intermediate and advanced learners.

🤷 How long does it take to get better at speaking English?

Some people have a natural ability and learn languages quickly, but for most to go beyond the basics and gain working fluency in English will take at least 600 hours of active use. The amount of time can differ a lot depending on your current level of English or knowledge of other languages in the same group. After alphabet and basic reading it is advised to use the language as often as possible: watch videos, start a journal or write posts and comments using your new language skills, find native speakers to speak with, try other ways to think and speak in English out loud. If you're struggling when starting a discusssion you can also take conversational English classes online.

🤳 How many possibilities do I choose among when I select the right English teacher?

In colleges and universities, there's a chance you can choose your own tutor (from the ones who already work there). Online, certainly! The largest selection of verified English tutors with detailed profiles and true reviews is available on online language learning resources like Preply.

🗓 What's the best time to schedule classes?

Colleges usually run classes two times weekly over a semester (75-day period). Language schools as a rule have shorter, 8-week, 12-week, and 16-week course sessions. Online, you can take as few as one lesson a year, as many as several a day - and as many (or as few) as you want during any time of day, on weekdays and/or weekends.
