Who are we? We are a group of volunteer teachers from all over the United States with years of experience and are native English speakers.
What happens during a lesson? Before the lesson, you will read the online assignment in English and listen to the audio MP3 to hear how to say the words. You may also read the Chinese translation if you want to understand the meaning more clearly. The lessons are usually held each week for about one hour on skype, qq, or in person near where you live. You will read the lesson with your teacher and discuss it. The teacher will help you to improve your English usage and answer questions you may have about the subject being discussed. After the lesson you may also ask for a written essay assignment, which the teacher will later review and correct.
What will you learn? You will learn principles that can help you to have a happy and successful life. You will also learn about the history of the Bible and the Bible's influence in the past, present, and future.
Will you be able to practice everyday conversation? Yes. Even though the main subject is the Bible, the Bible is a book that talks about all activities of everyday life. So during the lesson you will be able to talk about many things from your life and how the Bible relates to these.
Will you be asked to become a member of something? No. The lessons are free, there are no obligations, and you can choose to do whatever you want with the information you learn.
