Comprehensive support in language learning
We are very glad that the method of language training, close to our heart, has gained momentum in Poland. 2020 has made the world follow technology much faster. Online trainings do not scare off as they did in the past but gain a broad audience thanks to saving students’ travel time and the availability of many materials.
What we offer to our BBT students are B-learning courses based on the hybrid learning method, which combines the interaction of the teacher in the traditional classroom with the activation and monitoring of the student’s work online. This division ensures a greater commitment to the learning process, a quick response and message, and attractive content of the lesson.
The materials we use during our BBT courses are digital and fully interactive sources and coursebooks, together with a set of additional audio and video materials and a number of further tools. They are ideal for working at home, in distance learning and in blended learning.
The exercises and platforms used in our classes are innovative online solutions that provide students with motivational material for self-study and revision, and teachers with tools for systematic monitoring of their efforts.
According to the ICAN Institute, it is not a discovery that half of the success is a good teacher, but the other half is self-study. B-learning increases self-efficiency by turning the coursebook into a multimedia, intelligent platform. It also increases the effectiveness of the sessions with the teacher, as it limits it to training what was self-done , while listening to dialogs, reading or grammar activities.
Modern technologies, including artificial intelligence, personalize the vocabulary and grammar learning process much better. Reading and listening are also much more effective on the platform and mobile application than working in the classroom.
Studies conducted by Professor Dongsong Zhang and J. Leon Zhao Can E-learning Replace Classroom Learning? showed in 2004 that the receptive skills can be gained faster due to a good e-learning platform than during traditional classroom training. A good example is doing listening tasks: you prefer a recording played by the teacher for the whole group, or the same recording on your mobile application which you play as many times as you need?
In the above research, students were divided into two groups: one attended traditional classes, the other an online course – they could see a lecture, read additional content, see the presentation, discuss in the forum, ask the teacher by sending an e-mail. At the end of the semester there was an exam. What happened? Each time the on-line learners received higher grades! The answer was in the sense of individualization of learning – it is the student, not the teacher, in the heart of the learning process. It is the student who controls the process, with magic keys at the disposal: stop, pause, reverse, go further, jump. Individualization increases efficiency.
Online – meaning mobile today – stands for greater convenience, dosing knowledge at the time and place chosen by the student, and no stress.
