teacher online learning courses
I am happy to say that teaching English at the Shanghai Online Training Center (SHOTC) has made it increasingly convenient to connect with adult learners from all over China via an online classroom. The best part about online learning for the students is that they can either choose a prepared lesson, or they can make a custom request on a topic that might be relevant to their work or studies. Taking into account all of the changes that have occurred at the SHOTC, I am extremely optimistic about the future of this 21st century working environment.
