These days you can learn English online. In fact it is one of the most efficient ways to learn the language when combined with real world practice, as some of the best English courses now exist in “the cloud.”
With the growth in internet television, it is also possible to learn to speak English online and achieve a neutral Standard English accent in the process. SpeechSchool.TV has an acclaimed English Accent course which has taught students from over 60 countries to speak English naturally and well.
SpeechSchool says that the best way to learn English speech is by going back to the 50 individual phonetic sounds in Standard English and learning them one by one and then in context. In particular, for migrants to English speaking countries, one of the key factors in how well they integrate and work in their new society, is their ability to pick up good spoken English that can be easily understood by others.
Learning good spoken English means that migrants do not feel so isolated and do not need to keep within existing ethnic groups. Being able to speak to people in the general population has huge benefits, because migrants can join clubs, Churches, societies and other groups along with having a much wider selection of job prospects.
An investment of time now in online English speech learning can make a huge difference to a migrant’s chance of success in their new country.
In addition, even when English is not the main language of a country, it is most often the main second or business language of these countries meaning that good spoken English is the fall back position when people do not speak the same language.
