English is the key to the gate of the World. For me, English is the means to get to know the whole world and make friends endlessly. Through teaching I can pass on my experience and help others stop being afraid of ordering coffee on holidays, asking for directions or leading an important meeting or telephone call with their foreign partners.
My opinions regarding teaching languages via Skype
As far as I am concerned, I can only recommend learning via Skype. For many of us, working with computer is an absolute innate action. And when accompanied by comfort of home and entertaining interactive environment, it leaves the student looking forward to very intensive and engaging lessons. I also value the saved commuting time for both parties and the consequent increase in flexibility of the course offers available to clients beyond their town boundary :-).
