Sometimes I get asked about German lessons by people who live too far away for me to travel. If I then suggest online lessons via Skype, they shy away. They want the personal touch, they say, and in a way, I agree. I rather teach with the student in the same room.
But what if that’s not possible? What if you’ve looked for a tutor and cannot find one in your area?
This is what happened to one of my students.
Last year he was looking for a German tutor but could not find anybody where he lived.
Fast forward one year and the lessons are still going strong. In all that time we had 2 small internet problems which interrupted the lessons for a short while.
During the same time I had other lesson cancellations because of bad weather and broken down cars. Not a worry with online lessons.
So, if you are looking for German lessons and can’t find a tutor, then consider learning via Skype. Give it a try – you may be pleasantly surprised….. and, if your tutor has a nasty cold like I have at the moment, you can’t catch it either ;-))
