With so many options available to learn a language, the Museum of Knowledge explores the benefits of developing this key skill via traditional Universities.
Face-to-face- The majority of language learning course programmes in Universities are face-to-face. Some students may prefer this type of learning and the opportunity to engage in regular dialogues with a teacher, participate in live sessions and ask questions whilst they learn.
Group classes– Classes within Universities normally consist of 15-20 students at a time. This factor alone may present another supportive element for students learning a language who can exchange ideas in classes with fellow students who have reached the same level of language competency as them.
Additional teacher support- As part of the student’s tuition fees within Universities, students can access professors on an appointment basis after class time for additional support. Any work completed such as assignments receives additional support including grading on a regular basis so that students can track their progress.
Accreditation- Universities are able to offer students accreditation via Honours degrees, a recognizable qualification that can be used to assist in their progression in the world of work.
There are clearly advantages for those who wish to learn a language via a formal University education and/or undertake online courses via language institutions such as the Museum of Knowledge. Both routes can generate excellent results for students. With all language learning programmes, it is important to embrace various resources so that a holistic understanding of the language is attained.
