Today, I show you a past question of TOEFL. That is …
Learning through online courses is more effective than learning in the traditional classroom settingTOEFL
That is a speaking test. You must answer the question within 60 seconds.
That sounds difficult. I’m worried if I can answer that question correctly.
It is no exaggeration to say that the TOEFL score is essential for those studying abroad. This time, I will present the opinions of the pros and cons to this question. I want you to use it for studying TOEFL.
Thoughts I AGREE with this
Online classes have the following benefits:
- A learning environment where you can study without worrying about your surroundings
- A learning environment where you can take good teacher classes at low cost
I see! Please explain in detail!
A learning environment where you can study without worrying about your surroundings
For example, reading aloud is important when studying English (reading comprehension, listening, etc.). However, some people may be embarrassed to practice speaking while with their classmates. Others may not be able to concentrate on studying while listening to others. With online lessons, you can practice pronunciation at home or concentrate on your own lessons.
I see! You can freely devise an environment where you can concentrate at home!
Another advantage of online classes is that you don’t have to go to school.
A learning environment where you can take good teacher classes at low cost
Unfortunately, some school teachers are good at teaching and others are not. School teachers often change once a year, so if a teacher who isn’t good at teaching takes charge of that year, that year would be wasted. One year of school lessons is very important. In that year, you would not be good at that subject.
In the case of online classes, you can take classes from teachers who are good at teaching. Not only can they teach students in an easy-to-understand manner, but they also arouse the interest of the discipline. Interesting lessons are more efficient because you can quickly learn what you are studying.
At ordinary high schools, there are few teachers who are interested in studying. It’s nice to be able to come into contact with many classes of interest when I was a student.
Yeah. Online lessons also help close regional educational disparities.
There are not many cram schools in rural areas. As a result, there is a gap in learning opportunities between urban and rural students. And it also makes a difference in the universities that you can go to. Online lessons can be taken anywhere you have the internet, so you can close the gap.
Thoughts I AGREE with this
There will be an educational gap between families who can use the Internet and those who do not.
I am a high school student. I don’t have an internet computer or a mobile phone.
While online lessons can close the educational gap between regions, they create another problem. That is, there is a difference in educational opportunities between students who can use the Internet and those who do not.
Some may argue that there are few homes in the IT society that cannot use the Internet. However, the amount of traffic that can be used on the Internet varies depending on the student. It takes a lot of gigs when watching a video. What else would happen if a family with multiple siblings had only one computer? While one child is using it, the other child cannot study. I think it’s a problem that you can study with the traditional learning method in the classroom, but you lose the opportunity to study because of the online lessons.
