Simplified Speech #111 – Online learning

In the last year, online learning has become one of the most convenient ways to learn a new skill or teach a class. In this episode, Andrew and Kassy talk about the advantages and disadvantages to online learning and share what they’ve been studying online. . This episode is a Simplified Speech episode. Simplified Speech is the Culips series that features completely 100% totally natural English conversations, the only difference being that they are slowed down just a little bit. And we hope that by listening to the slowed-down conversation, you can really focus and hone in on the vocabulary and sentence patterns that you will hear Kassy and Andrew use today.

Fun facts

In 1986, before the internet, the Electronic University Network (EUN) offered the first so‑called “online” course; students ran EUN software on their computers and spoke with each other over the phone. It wasn’t until 1994 that the world saw the first truly online course run by the Computer Assisted Learning Center (CALCampus).
