The pandemic will have been only for a limited period of time in the end. Education and further training, however, are for life. There are many reasons why THIS is the right time to get ready to engage with foreign languages. Start now! 5 reasons to consider:
1. Trust and habituation
Until recently conference systems such as Skype or ZOOM have had problems with data protection and security, but they have considerably improved which is shown in their higher acceptance. The intuitive ease of use which is common with most conference platforms has also contributed to the fact that video chats are now part of our standard communication.
2. Time and planning
The switch to Home Office or working hyprid has initiated a change in the daily routine. This new time slots can be used for further education and online teaching. Whether in the morning, afternoon or evening , flexibility is what counts and what is available with online teaching.
Working life has changed rapidly and many have contemplated: Is my profession, my job still future-proof? What skills and which experience will be needed in the future? How can I acquire further knowledge? Foreign language skills should be included in your portfiolio of consideration. They are an essetial part of the business world as well as in private.
Online teaching is not more expensive than classroom instruction. It saves travel times and costs. Even though many miss the interaction and dynamics in a “real” classroom situation, it is definitely worth combining both forms of teaching. Flexible 1-to-1 online teaching with the private teacher matched with group lessons on-site, has turned out to be a motivating form of learning. In terms of costs many employers are still often willing to pay for language training of their employees.
Should that not be the case you are very likely to pay less taxes when you hand in an invoice covering further educaion at the tax office.
5. Future and development
Be fit and trim for the future. Develop your skills and qualifications. If you are in a professional re-orientation or in an application process, language skills can be an extra to make you stick out.
