I would just like to make a few comments about how happy I am with the new “free online mini English lessons” we have been uploading to the Smiths School of English website and using in our classrooms on a weekly basis. （英語オンライン無料レッスン）
These days with the Internet, it seems that any kind of information is readily available at our fingertips, including information for those who are looking for free online English lessons. Looking to learn English online is… a worthwhile cause and I myself have also studied Japanese online from time to time but what is missing is that there is no teacher sitting down in front of me who can listen to me and make comments and corrections on the spot. （英語 オンライン 無料 レッスン）
There is no teacher who can encourage me to expand my sentences, perhaps add a few more thoughts, and make a more interesting story in the end. There is also no teacher who can encourage me to include some elements of past lessons, so in my opinion free English lessons online are ok for a starting point but will never provide the level of improvement in English language speaking as coupling those lessons with a real teacher will.
Here at Smiths School of English we upload a new “free online English lesson” for our students on a weekly basis. It’s basically a new sentence pattern and an example of a sentence using that grammar, both of which are provided in English and Japanese. By themselves, it would be a stretch to call these complete lessons; they were never intended as such.
I began by saying that I would like to explain why I like this new format of weekly “free online English lessons” we have been using now for roughly 7 months or so here at Smiths School of English. 英語 オンライン 無料 レッスン
The reason I like these is because they provide a platform from which we can begin an interesting lesson each time. Each student takes a look at the new sentence pattern prior to their next lesson and then creates a sentence based on their own personal information. It brings the sentences to life!
Depending on the individual student’s level, some may simply fill in one word for the “A” slot, “B” slot and so on, while others use the sentence pattern as the cornerstone of a story. These sentence patterns provide all students, regardless of their levels, something short, manageable and which they can quickly adopt into their English conversations. We upload the “skeleton” basically and then the students, with their teacher’s assistance in a Smiths School of English classroom, bring it to life whether as a short sentence or as part of an extended story.
Several of my students at Smiths School of English in Fuse regularly print them out, bring them to class, write down the other student’s examples, then file them away into a plastic binder which they bring with them to class every time. These provide my students at Smiths School of English in Fuse with an opportunity to quickly review a list of useful sentence patterns used in everyday English conversations.
In addition to having these free online English lessons up for reading and printing, we also upload a short video every week which the students can view and improve their listening abilities. These free online English lesson videos are thanks to the work of Al Bartle from Smiths School of English in Okamoto. In addition to these videos, Al has also made some very useful TOEIC listening practice videos which can be viewed on the Smiths School of English YouTube Channel.（英語 オンライン 無料 レッスン）
Thank you Al, we all appreciate the extra efforts you make!
That sums it up for me in regards to the Smiths School of English Free Online English Lessons.
I like them. （スミス英会話の 英語オンライン無料レッスン）
