One of the advantages of the online tutorial course is the role playing options a
student may engage in. He is able to choose a role that he would like to fulfill and
then begins to perform a dialogue with a video head. The student can record their
conversations as many times as he would like to, until the correct pronunciation is
nailed. The online tutorial course serves to build up the confidence of the student
as unlike in a classroom; he is able to go through lessons as many times as he needs
to. There is no pressure or competition from other students in a class.
For a teacher, the online course offers maximum efficiency and practicality. Lesson
guides are detailed and tracked down accordingly. Grades are recorded and computed
electronically so there is little room for mistake. A teacher is also given the
option to enroll in classes to sharpen their mastery of the English language further. Dubbed as Teacher Development Courses, they can enroll and log in at their
most convenient time to advance their studies in teaching English. The program has
been met with positive reviews by teachers and students alike.
The "English Interactive" ESL Program has been approved by the Statin Island, NY
School System and placed into a Pilot Program of 70 students. It has been running
for two months and with great success. The "English Interactive" Program
Developer Dr. Oscar Vasquez-Melendez is set to meet with more schools to contract a
regular schedule of this program. The ESL Program is set to be integrated in
learning modules in different universities, businesses and individuals on an
international scale. Students earn a certificate after completing all 4 levels.
This certificate may be used for advanced learning in a college or university.
