Since our Autumn Sale began yesterday, we’ve been busy with our online lesson students rushing to sign up for lesson credits at a great price.
These are the regulars who’ve been studying with one of our online teachers for a while, some of them for years.
Mostly they take a lesson or two a week, but some are studying more intensively.
They know us, know their teacher, and know a great deal when one comes along!
But guys: before you pay for your next set of lessons, don’t forget to copy and paste the coupon code into the box in your shopping cart.
Then scroll down to check that the discount has been applied to the total.
Here’s the coupon code again, in case you missed it yesterday:
Remember, no coupon code, no 20% saving!
(Also not to forget is that the 20% discount is good for EVERYTHING in our shop – lessons, ebooks, the works!)
But OK, what if you’re NOT already taking online lessons with one of our club professionals?
Well, why on earth not??
You want to improve your Italian, right?
And unless you’re married to an Italian as I am, or live in Italy, or have Italian friends, practise can be the one piece of the puzzle that’s missing.
Practice makes perfect.
Online Italian lessons are NOT expensive (click here to view online lesson prices).
And they ARE effective in terms of improving your Italian (read reviews about online Italian lessons).
So maybe the issue is just that you don’t know how would work?
What technology you’d need?
Who your teacher would be?
And so on?
You might, therefore, find these ‘frequently asked questions’ from our FAQ page informative:
Who will my online Italian teacher be?
All our online Italian lesson teachers are professionals. They have significant teaching experience and usually speak reasonable English. Either they work (or have worked) at my Italian school in Bologna, or they write (or have written) materials for us. We interview new teachers online before accepting them, and brief them thoroughly regarding what our clients need and expect. In the unlikely event there is anything (at all) that you’re not happy with, our teaching manager Lucia is your first point of call. Whatever the problem is, she’ll sort it out for you.
Do I have to study at a regular day/time?
Nope, it’s flexible. But people do tend to end up having a regular day/time because it just works out like that once lessons become a routine for you. Not to say you can’t cancel a lesson you’ve booked. Just write to your teacher in advance to let him/her know.
Who decides the lesson content?
Normally, you do. Your lessons can include conversation, grammar, a mix, whatever you prefer. If you aren’t sure, ask your teacher for suggestions. She/he will be happy to advise you, or simply decide for you what you need.
Does the online teacher speak English?
It’s one of our requirements. But we’d strongly advise you not to use English as the ‘lingua franca’ for your lessons, as that rather defeats the point…
Why are lessons just 30 minutes long?
As a teacher I think that, while a one-hour individual lesson is ideal when face-to-face in a classroom, an hour online can be heavy, especially when you’re just starting out. So we offer a default of 30 minutes instead. If you’d rather have a longer session, just book two lessons to run one after another. The price of two half-hour lessons is comparable with one full-hour session offered by other quality schools, but offers you more flexibility.
What software/hardware do I need?
Obviously, a good broadband connection is a pre-requisite, and then you’ll need Skype, which is a free download. Most computers and tablets already have it installed. If you already use it to make video calls, the online lessons should work just fine for you. If you’re unsure about whether your computer/tablet is up for learning Italian online, let me know and I can organize a test call with you to check.
Why take lessons with OnlineItalianClub.com, rather than a cheaper alternative?
Our mission is to provide good quality online materials and online teaching, while at the same time providing work for Italian teachers. We’re about building a trusted team of professionals to provide the best possible learning and teaching. Read reviews.
How do I buy more than 10 lessons?
If you select the ‘10 lesson‘ option in our shop and add it to your cart, you can then change the quantity of the ‘product’ you’re purchasing, so instead of ‘1 x 10 lessons’ you modify that to ‘3 x 10 lessons’, or whatever. Regular clients wait for the offers (now, then again in January) to stock up on twenty or thirty lessons.
