If you want 1:1 coaching with me / ask a pronunciation question, then join my online classroom sessions. These are not structured classes, but an opportunity to get live support.
These take place regularly (usually one hour per week on a weekday – but this depends on my schedule) and at different times (to suit different time zones). After subscribing to the course, you will be able to see the next dates and register by clicking Bookmarks -> Online Classroom in the sidebar.
When you enter the online classroom, type in the chat window what you would like (e.g. I’d like to get some coaching / read a text and get feedback / know what to focus on / ask a question via video) or simply type a pronunciation question.
The online classroom works on a first-come first-served basis. For coaching, each student will receive approximately 10 minutes. I can’t guarantee that I will have time to talk to everyone, but I will try to prioritise people who have not had a chance to speak to me before.
Access is through your internet browser so you don’t need to download any special software, but ensure your internet browser is updated.
If you’d like to chat via video you’ll need to use a computer or laptop (not a tablet or phone). Check your webcam/mic are working and that you have a good internet connection.
The online classroom is open to all course subscribers. Your personal details (name, email, native language) will not be revealed to other attendees during the class. But if you post a question in the chat, your first name will be visible to other attendees.
Your webcam/microphone will be switched off by default when you enter. But if you choose to chat to Luke via video, then other attendees will be able to see/hear you and are likely to find out your first name and native language. Of course, you are free to watch other students being coached and learn from them.
The online classroom is not recorded or stored in the course in any way.
If you feel uncomfortable turning on your webcam, you can request to turn on your mic only.
