Going Native: Are English Lessons with a Native Speaker Right for You?

If you are thinking about taking English lessons, there are a few things to consider. Before you decide to go ahead with a program such as AJ Hoge’s Effortless English Club[1], you have to take a number of different factors into account. One of the first things to think about, and perhaps the most obvious, is whether you should take lessons with a native speaker or someone who has more skill in your own language. There are pros and cons to having a native speaker as your teacher and I’ll elaborate on them in this article.

Before you decide if a native speaker will be the right type of teacher for you, you should know what qualities make a native speaker a good teacher.

With those things in mind, now is the time to decide if lessons with a native speaker are right for you. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you decide.

As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, there are no hard and fast rules when choosing a teacher that is right for you. These rules will apply to some and not to others. However, generally, these tips should help guide you in making a good decision concerning whether or not a native teacher is right for you.

If you’ve had experiences with a native speaker, I’d love to hear about it. Let me know in the comments and, of course, I’m always available for questions.
