Where do Chinese Students Study English Online? from 0 – 500 Chinese Yuan
Chinese students in Social Media: Ten years ago, Chinese students learned English in traditional ways like reading books, listening to tapes and going to English corner. It’s the digital era now! The way that Chinese students learn English has changed greatly! They are now much more inclined to learn English online.
In addition to the cheap price, the most important advantage of online learning is convenience. With a computer or mobile phone, everyone is ready to learn English, and the quality of learning isn’t much different from offline learning.
Mastering English can be regarded as an investment. Students invest in themselves so that they can become more competitive. I’ll introduce a variety of platforms and methods for Chinese students to learn English online, broken down by budget range.
Most high school students and college students don’t have a lot of money to invest in learning English. They prefer to use free courses on the Internet, watch TV shows and use free Apps. They rely on their own learning abilities and get less support.
