Let’s find out today with our special guest Turgay Evren.

Turgay is an English instructor from Turkey and also an author of more than 60 best-selling ESL books.

Turgay is going to tell us about the differences between learning English in a traditional classroom versus learning English online.

Consider the location:

  • Are you going to be in a traffic jam commuting to your class? When you learn online you don’t need to sit in traffic to get to a physical school. Sitting in traffic can be a waste of time. You can also consider this when it comes to test preparation such as IELTS or TOEFL.
  • Choose your location based on your everyday needs and your life.


Does online learning work better in terms of psychology?

  • If you feel shy or awkward when you are learning with a teacher in person then maybe online education is a better option for you. You will feel more confident.
  • If you learn online you can visit different websites or podcasts. You’ll have more access to real English.
