What are the true benefits of distance language learning?

If you’ve already decided to take up a language training course, but still don’t know whether to do this face-to-face or remotely, this article will help you make your mind up.
We tell you about the true benefits of distance language learning, helping you take the best course of action.

Opt for high-quality & hassle-free courses

Do you think we reinventing the wheel? Nah! For the vast majority of people, online language learning means bottom-of-the-range training. And yet, for several years already, training organisations such as 1to1PROGRESS, have been delivering distance language training courses that are just as qualitative (if not more) than those offered face-to-face.

Distance language learning has nothing to envy so-called conventional language lessons. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. A broad range of educational materials, native speakers in the language they teach, tutoring and coaching systems, personalised follow-up… Everything is carefully thought out to ensure each learner benefits from the best training in the best conditions.

By choosing distance learning, you will free yourself from the burden of travel constraints without having to settle for a lower quality course. In these times of health crisis, that’s pretty good news, don’t you think?

Choose your own learning environment

Not having to travel also means more freedom in terms of your work environment. If you undertake your language training within the framework of the CPF for example, you can choose to take your lessons during your working hours ( subject to your employer’s agreement) or outside of them.

Learning a language remotely requires very little equipment: a terminal (computer, tablet or smartphone) and an internet connection. You can also choose to learn from the comfort of your sofa, from your desk, or even while commuting, the possibilities are endless.

The most important factor is that you get to choose the most suitable environment to facilitate your learning.

Reduce your expenses with distance language learning

The costs are usually lower in distance language learning. Not only do you save on travel costs, of course, but that’s not all.

As distance learning providers tend to have lower overall operating costs, this impacts on the average price of training courses.

A high quality language training that meets your needs, at a reasonable price. What could be better?

Distance language learning: flexibility first and foremost!

The greatest benefit of distance language learning is undoubtedly flexibility.

In contrast to face-to-face language classes, which take place at fixed times, distance learning enables you to adapt your sessions to your needs and expectations, even in terms of scheduling.


This is especially true with what is known as blended learning. This method allows you to combine lessons with a trainer via videoconferencing or telephone, and periods of self-study with e-learning or microlearning modules.

It is you alone who is in charge of determining when and how you organise your lessons. At 1to1 PROGRESS, for example, you can book sessions 24/7. For maximum flexibility, cancellations are possible up to 60 minutes before the start of the lesson. Not enough time for an hour-long lesson? No big deal, simply book a 30-minute long session instead!

A wider range of foreign language courses

Distance learning makes language training courses more varied and more interesting. This variety is reflected in the choice of the language(s) on offer. Instead of being limited to those available at your nearest training centre, thanks to the Internet, you can train in any language. At 1to1 PROGRESS alone, you can learn 8 different languages.

Distance language learning also means a richer range of teaching materials: dedicated applications and platforms, videos, interactive quizzes, podcasts, e-books, etc. You’re bound to find something to quench your thirst for learning!

Distance language learning means freeing yourself from many constraints and hurdles, without compromising on the quality of the training. With solutions such as blended learning, it is even possible to enjoy the benefits of lessons with a native trainer of the language you are learning, wherever you are and whenever you want.
