When I discovered that people are using virtual worlds like SecondLife to learn languages, I got really excited. That’s when I discovered Language Lab, a virtual English school where students can improve speaking, listening, reading, and writing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in a place called English City.
Fun Lessons for Everybody
Do you want to know how to improve spoken English? Join a conversation in the park, or practice in an interactive pronunciation class.
Are you more interested in increasing your vocabulary? There are a lot of game like classes for learning new words.
If you are looking to improve your Business English, they also have courses designed to prepare you for any business situation.
In every lesson, you get the chance to learn from a qualified native teacher and interact with other students using a headset and microphone.
If you wish you had more confidence to speak everyday English with native speakers, simply studying more is not going to help. You’ve just got to get out and do it – throw yourself into new situations! With Language Lab, you can “get out” any time that is convenient for you and meet new people in a fun, video game like setting.
In my opinion, this is much more comfortable than meeting a stranger in a video chat! If you do meet a nice person and feel comfortable talking to them, you could ask to connect with them on Skype or in one of your social networks.
Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced student, there are a lot of lessons that will help you get to the next stage. To see how Language Lab has helped other students, see what they are saying here.
The courses are a monthly subscription, but you can now try it for 14 days for only $9.95. They also promise to give you a full refund if you are ever unhappy with your lessons. If it sounds interesting and fun to you, I hope you will go give LanguageLab.com lessons a try!
