English Language Classes For Ibadan Students

You might ask: What is English? The English language is ranked the 2nd most spoken language in the world after Mandarin Chinese. An estimated number of 983 million people (native speakers estimate: 371 million, non-native speakers estimate: 611 million) speak this language, making it the most widespread language in the world. Its profile also includes being the official language of more than 60 countries in the world.

It's an open secret that people who learn English in Nigeria are placed on a higher pedestal. In fact, you can profile a person by how well they speak English. When you take the time to learn how to speak English fluently, you are better-connected to jobs, good education, networking and a better life in general. Learning how to speak English fluently grants you access to a diverse range of opportunities in the business (a wider range of job offers) and academic world (scholarships within Nigeria and English speaking countries in Africa and abroad). As a student who is learning how to speak good English, you can harness your language skills for several purposes.

There are so many opportunities (asides jobs and academics) when you take English classes. Joining the English learning experience early will offer you so many great results. Let's take a look at primary things you should know about the English language and why taking English lessons is so important.

Why Learn English?

You may be perplexed as to why you should learn the English language. Besides, it's already the official language in Nigeria so why bother? Taking English classes goes beyond just communicating; it has become the pass to success in every field you may encounter. It is also the language of business, science and technology.

As a Nigerian looking for a higher-paying job or a better education abroad, you will need to know how to speak good English. For instance, a student looking to study any course abroad will be required to take the IELTS English language exam. You may also be required to do some English tests before getting a job offer abroad.

Additionally, more than half of the countries in the world are English speaking countries. While your basic knowledge of English may allow you to communicate, you need a more advanced version to get you approved for business, networking and academics. Since it is the most widely spread language in the world, arming yourself with substantial knowledge will help you a lot in the long run.

Different Methods of English Tutorials

There are several approved ways you can learn English. The first most common way is through classroom teaching. English is the primary mode of communication in schools in Ibadan capital and Oyo state, as it is in other states in Nigeria. As such, you will learn English grammar and its functions, English pronunciation, English tenses etc at primary level. As you advance, your level of learning English courses expands a lot more.

Another way is through private tutoring or home tutoring. Unlike some international countries where parents can choose to home school their children, Nigerian parents or guardians use after-school or face to face home lessons to complement what students have learned in school. Parents and learners usually hire the services of a private English teacher to help them learn English.

With the rise of technology, beginners and students looking to advance their knowledge of the language can take online English lessons. Online English classes can take two major forms:

  • The first form involves video lessons where an approved or certified teacher or native speaker teaches a general audience. Platforms like Youtube offer a lot of free online English classes for interested learners. The downside to having a free English tutorial experience is that it isn't narrowed down specifically to your needs.  A free online class is widespread and it can sometimes be detrimental to your learning process especially when you're a beginner.
  • The second type of online class is webcam class. A student hires approved English tutors online via certified teaching websites and lessons are held with the use of a webcam. Your approved English teacher is expected to have a teaching plan and work according to the approved curriculum. You also get to experience individualised learning while you and your tutors are working on a scheduled time.

Of course, just like mathematics and other subjects, taking this subject may appear tough. However, constant reviews of your progress, consistency and dedication will pay off. Also, if your approved teacher is doing a proper job at teaching you, be rest assured of a faster and easier learning process.

English Lessons For Primary And Secondary School Students In Ibadan

Primary and secondary schools in places like Ibadan, Lagos and other parts of Nigeria follow an approved national curriculum for their English lesson. Montessori schools, for example, offer jolly phonics and sometimes visual phonics for primary learners during their study of English. It involves singing along and using familiar materials to identify English words and sounds. It also helps build a strong foundation in boosting their diction to international standards.

A secondary level English lesson focuses a lot more on English tenses and the English sentence structure. Every learner is expected to do private reviews of their lesson, profile their progress, read comprehensive passages and improve their reading, writing and expressionism in English. Just like mathematics, English is an approved compulsory subject for science, art and commercial pupils at the secondary level.  You will be required to take the subject during your WAEC examination and pass it before qualifying for university admission.

Taking an after-school face to face lesson can allow secondary level learners to increase their understanding and prepare them for their national exams required for university admission.

Choosing The Best English Teachers For Online English Classes and Face To Face Lessons

Ibadan students can benefit from both the Online English lesson via webcam and the face to face class. But it all balls down to one thing - research. There are several approved English teachers (webcam and face to face lesson) teaching this Language. A lot of these teachers can help you study English and prepare for your exams. However, getting the approved tutor for your level is what is most important. The principal job of a private English tutor is to teach a student through individualised teaching methods. If a tutor is in sync with his/her learner, then their teaching method will aid a better understanding. The tutor's expertise years may also affect how they teach and the overall quality of education they offer while doing their job.

Approved tutoring platforms like Superprof offer webcam and face to face home tutorials. Superprof allows teachers or tutors under the platform to profile themselves. In their profile view, past students also leave reviews and you have access to 95% of teachers offering their first hour of lesson for free. Furthermore, you can always contact your tutor if you'd like to have a webcam class rather than face to face home lesson. In terms of tuition fees, location, years of expertise and number of hours can affect pricing. People located in Ibadan, Lagos and other metropolitan states in Nigeria may pay higher for per hour classes than less populated cities or cities with low education training. In any case, tuition fees are affordable and are investment worth a lifetime. So, whether it's for university admission, after-school hour tutorials, jobs or any other purpose, let Superprof assist you to achieve success.
