7 Reasons Why Learning English 1-2-1 is More Effective Than Being in a Group

There are may advantages to learning English on a 1-2-1 basis, and in this article, we are going to explore some of them. While some people benefit more from a group learning environment, most people thrive in a 1-2-1 situation. Ultimately, it very much comes down to your preference and individual learning style, though we would advise having a read through some of the following points so that you can make an informed decision from there about whether 1-2-1 might be best for you or not.

1 – Lessons Are Tailored to You

What are you learning English for? Do you want to improve your business capabilities? Or is it purely for social reasons? Whatever the case, with a 1-2-1 English class your lessons will be tailored to you specifically and your language requirements.

2 – It’s All About You

While a group learning Environment can be nourishing, in a 1-2-1 it’s all about you, and with the undivided attention of your tutor you are quite literally learning all the time.

3 – You Can Relax

If you lack confidence or feel shy, you might not speak up when you don’t understand something in a group environment out of fear of annoying the other students. In a 1-2-1 environment you won’t have to worry about anything like that, which means you’ll be able to completely relax and focus on learning.

4 – The Lessons Will Be at Your Pace

In a group environment, it’s very much sink or swim as there will be a certain pace that you’ll have to keep up with. Sure, any competent teacher will ensure that everyone is ‘up to speed’ before moving on, but again, some people might not have the confidence to speak up and invariably they end up falling behind.

5 – ZERO Distractions

In a group environment, you never know what you’re going to get. You might be lucky and have a respectful class of students, though you could end up being in a group with someone who you find rather distracting, regularly trying to joke and show off. Obviously, in a 1-2-1 scenario there will be no distractions from other students, only you and your teacher.

6 – It’s Private & Confidential

You may wish to work on sensitive or private material which you wouldn’t want other people to know about. When working directly with your teacher you don’t have to worry about other people knowing your business, particularly if it’s something work-related. Privacy and confidentiality are highly important to some people and so any reputable language school will respect that.

7 – You Do the Talking

In a 1-2-1 environment you, and your teacher, are doing all of the talking, rather than sharing your time with other students. This allows you to work on new vocabulary and go over older material of your choosing, and it’s always you who is doing the learning. To get the same amount of speaking time you’d have to significantly increase the number of group lessons.

Covid-19: Update

King’s English จะดำเนินการต่อและให้ตัวเลือกต่อไปนี้แก่นักเรียนของเราทุกคน:

นักเรียนสามารถทำแบบฝึกหัดผ่านอินเทอร์เฟซการเรียนรู้ออนไลน์เช่น Skype หรือ Zoom

As of Sunday, 17th May, the Thai Government is relaxing its rules regarding the opening of certain establishments: one of those kinds of businesses is "Tutorial Schools".

As of Monday, 18th May, GK Consultants will once again open its doors to welcome current students and also new students. Strict safety procedures will remain in effect: cleaning hands upon entry and exit and regular hand-washing with soap and water and/or cleaning hands with alcohol-based disinfectant gel which we provide as needed.

Those students who prefer to continue learning with us via the online platforms, Skype and Zoom, will be able to do that for as long as they wish. I have been very heartened by the success of our online teaching procedure and our students and their parents have been delighted that the learning process has been able to make such a seamless transition to this kind of study.

Best wishes and continue to stay safe!
