British national character

English02 Chat Style
me :

Hi Katie.

The other day, I wrote about differences in national character in online English lessons.

This diary is here.
differences-in-national-character-in-english-lessons

basically, if lesson time is 25 minutes.
Japanese tutor will start closing after 25 minutes, but tutor overseas will start closing around 24 minutes and 30 seconds.

Is this culture the same at school?
For Example, do teachers in the UK leave the class room before the end of class chime?

tutor :

Hi, I think I saw your tweet about this.
I think it is common for people working to finish up their work within the time set.
For example, shop keepers start telling customers they need to finish shopping 15 to 30 minutes before the actual closing time.

However, I have not seen school teachers do the same.
They take responsibility in finishing the class properly.
I think for some online lesson tutors, they don’t see their work as a proper education but just a part time job.
As a result, they try to finish everything within the set time.

me :

Really?

I was suspecting that. That’s the mindset of an online English tutor!
Thanks for the really valuable view!

According your theory, If you want to learn English properly academically, I feel that online English lesson are not suitable.

tutor :

Yeah I agree. They are not a proper teacher and when the pay is not too good, they are probably not too motivated to do it properly. There are good teachers sometimes, but it could be hit and miss.


イギリス人の国民性

先日、オンライン英会話における、英会話レッスンの国民性の違いについて書いたんだよね。
その内容がこれなんだけどね。

具体的には、レッスンの時間が25分としたら、日本人講師は 25分過ぎてからクロージングに入るけど、外国人講師は 24分30秒あたりからクロージングに入るって話。

これって、学校の授業でも同じ感じなの?
例えばイギリスとかでは、学校の先生は授業終了のチャイムが鳴る前に、さっさと授業を切り上げて教室から出たりするの?

うすうすそんな気はしていたけど、オンライン英会話の先生って、そんな意識なんだね!
ものすごい貴重な意見をありがとう!

その話を聞くと、英語をちゃんと「学問」として学びたい場合は、オンライン英会話レッスンは不向きな気がするね。
