The Advantages of Using One Computer for Two Students

Spend Less Money and Increase Your Advantage!
Online interactive programs that teach English are expensive for many students. They need to have a computer that can access the content within a reasonable period of time. They must also buy the program to be downloaded onto their computer. The expense for all of this can be reduced if the students plan to work with a friend. This article discusses the advantages plus some things to be considered before buying a program.

Learning English alone can be a little overwhelming. Perhaps working with a friend would be more relaxing, more fun, and more effective. You could support each other through the complexities of the language and laugh together at the content. Even as you begin, you could talk together, asking each other, “How are you?” or “How are you doing?” Although this may sound like a very limited conversation, you would need to have many answers ready to meet all of the situations.

Here Are Some Suggestions as to How this Might Be Arranged
A convenient computer location for both parties would be the first decision. This might be possible for:
– two members of the same family
– two students sharing a room in a university dormitory
– students who live in the same building
– high school students who can use a computer in the school’s language lab

Working Together Would Require Planning
– if students decide to work together they would need to plan the times that would be available to both of them
– they would need to be working at the same English level
– they would need to have a similar approach to learning a language – visual – auditory or using both modalities

Another Possibility Would Be for Several Students to Have Access
to the Computer Containing the Downloaded Program.

– with careful planning, they could use the computer individually or they could study together.
– using the same computer but working individually would reduce the need to be working at exactly the same level, as several levels can be purchased at one time.
– whether working together or individually, they would need to plan their times carefully

How Could an Interactive Program Accommodate Two Students at the Same Time?
An interactive language program where the answers are provided by a click of the mouse, likely includes many of the following activities that can be effectively shared:
– listening and repeating
– answering questions in sentences
– completing dialogues
– matching words and definitions
– role-playing
– understanding and following directions
– written work
– completing paragraphs using the correct tense
– asking questions

We suggest that you consider these suggestions before purchasing an online interactive English second language program. Careful planning before you begin could save you a lot of time and money. It will also help you to choose the program best suited to your learning style. Try to find a program that is interesting – something that you will enjoy.

About brian_mu8dft39

Successful ESL was created out of our first company, Learning English With Laughter which began in 1990 when we, George and Daisy Stocker, traveled to the historic city of Karlovy Vary in Czechoslovakia, to teach English in a private language school. Communism was over and the people were embarking along the road to democracy. There were hundreds of students eager to learn the English Language, but suitable textbooks were non-existent. Consequently, we wrote as we taught, making countless revisions as we listened to the students' special needs. Upon returning to our home in Victoria, Canada, we have adapted the Teen-adult Series to meet the cultural needs of students in a number of different countries. A variety of adaptations have been achieved through contacts with many countries. Thousands of students have encouraged us to use a conversational approach to English that stresses communication in a variety of everyday situations.
