If you want to learn to speak another language, you’ve probably wondered whether it’s better to learn languages online or in person. In this article we will answer you according to our experience as an academy and that of our students.

In general, both methods have their own characteristics, which could be considered advantages and disadvantages. The choice between one or the other will depend mainly on your personal needs and preferences.

In any case, many studies suggest that both methods are equally effective. However, others point out that in-person learning may be more effective for certain types of learners or situations.

But let’s review the advantages of each modality.

Learn languages online or in person?

To learn more about the characteristics of each of these forms of teaching, we decided to focus on the advantages, so that the disadvantages are implicit. However, as a language school, at Lingua Language Center, we do not consider that there are disadvantages between one way of learning or the other, but simply that they are different ways.

Sales of online language learning

  • Flexibility: Online language learning tends to be much more flexible than in-person alternatives because of the freedom it offers you when you study. In-person learning opportunities provide you with a limited degree of flexibility, as you must attend classes on a specific schedule. Online learning, on the other hand, allows you to study from anywhere at any time, making it ideal for those with busy or unpredictable schedules.
  • Increased access to resources: Online language learning can also provide access to a wide variety of educational resources, such as videos, games and mobile applications. These resources can help you learn the language in a more interactive and entertaining way.
  • Increased interaction: Although it may seem otherwise, online language learning can offer increased interaction with teachers and other students. Online learning platforms often have tools for real-time communication, such as chats and videoconferencing, allowing for more fluid communication between students and teachers 2.

Advantages of learning languages in person

  • Greater immersion: In-person language learning can provide greater language immersion than online learning. By being surrounded by the language all the time, you can improve your ability to understand and speak the language more fluently.
  • Increased motivation: In-person language learning can also be more motivating than online learning. By being surrounded by other students and teachers, you can feel more motivated to learn the language and improve your language skills.
  • Increased feedback: Teachers can provide more detailed and personalized feedback when teaching in person. This is because they can directly observe your pronunciation, grammar and other aspects of language that are difficult to assess through a screen.

So, learning languages online or in person?

In conclusion, whether you are going to learn languages online or in person, each system has its own characteristics.

The choice between one or the other will depend mainly on your personal needs and preferences.

However, at Lingua Language Center, we have been searching for more than 20 years for efficient alternatives to make both modalities extraordinarily useful for our students.

Because we understand the differences between going to a classroom and sitting in front of a computer, we apply mechanisms to minimize attention spans and teach our students as efficiently as possible.
