Many of you already know some of the advantages of Skype, and here is a full list of the reasons why I think Skype is the best tool for us to use during our online Thai tutoring sessions:
- Skype is a free. And it provides excellent video and voice calling, with great features such as screen sharing.
- Skype eliminates the inconvenience of travel to and from our sessions, with no travel cost to you.
- You can save the history of our lessons, and if you would like to record them, you can download a Skype recorder.
- We can use free online tools during the lessons, e.g. online dictionaries and Google.
- You will get used to typing on the Thai keyboard since we no longer write by hand much in everyday life.
- Skype is the best classroom tool for people who travel often.
- Skype solves the problem that a lot of people have: they cannot easily find a professional Thai tutor in their area.
