9. No fixed schedules
→ We are always far more motivated when we have the freedom to choose. At Oxinity, each student can decide when they want to take their class; which time suits them best, as it is not very useful to attend a class in times of stress. On the other hand, it is possible that unforeseen events may arise, such as a meeting taking too long, or we may simply be tired. → Not being ready is not the best state for proper learning. We must attend a class when we have the initiative to do so, when we are ready, there is no need to push ourselves.
With Oxinity students have the freedom to postpone their class within the current month, which favors their study and avoids them from losing money. It's a system that gives you control over your schedule; you are free to decide when you want to learn (and where as well!).
10. Teacher rotation
Incredible as it may seem, this is the key to the Oxinity system. As I mentioned at the beginning, it is the most anti-academic, the most anti-traditional, and the one aspect that mostly discourages potential students. But, at the same time, it is what makes the method so effective.
The flexible scheduling implies teacher rotation. As we saw, → natural learning takes place with different interlocutors, which is how we learned our native language and how we are going to use our new language. It is the way we relate with others in real life. With teacher rotation → we will be exposed to different accents of properly qualified teachers. This variable gives a level of richness that is impossible to obtain in an academy or with a private teacher. When I worked at the academy, students often commented:
On the other hand, exposure to multiple teachers nurtures the student with different techniques, strategies and approaches when it comes to learning. The pedagogical scope is much higher since some teachers emphasize more on pronunciation, others on vocabulary or others have more capacity when it comes to modeling or exemplifying.
This is the most innovative aspect and, at the same time, the one that makes new students worry about the most. → But don’t forget that what will guide the student's progress is the material, which is tailor-designed thanks to Big Data. It will be provided based on each student’s individual progress and his/her results from the previous session. Therefore, → the instructor is not linked to the content, and does not limit the classes but enriches them. This is one of the most brilliant aspects of the Oxinity method.
11. Avoiding the comfort zone
The comfort zone is precisely what it is: the space where we feel comfortable. And it is there where we tend to relax, wander and possibly get distracted much more easily. Therefore, → there is not much room left for learning, and this is the dynamic that tends to be established between the same teacher and the same students over a long period of time. Everyone ends up predicting each other's reaction.
Having a different teacher keeps us alert, not panicked, and provides a new challenge. From this alertness we are more attentive, we tend to listen more, and the capacity to absorb information is greater. → Alertness leads us to a more receptive state; we will be much more stimulated and absorb more content, as much of our learning is basically overcoming new challenges.
12. Surprise classes!
All these elements: teacher rotation, meeting new classmates and not following a synchronous program, make each class new. Therefore, → there is a point of expectation, as each session will be different. It is a pleasant surprise to see how both students and teachers meet again after a few weeks.
→ This way, there are no boring routines, nor do we find the same repetitive program year after year: present simple, present continuous, past simple, past continuous, and a long etcetera that both teachers and students would perfectly know how to fill out.
13. Only one click away
The best thing about Oxinity's system is that → everything is integrated in the same platform. With one single click you can access the virtual classrooms, additional materials, the calendar to book classes and even a simple (but effective) game to complement the work done in class. Like this, students can review more technical aspects and check on their grammar and vocabulary in a more enjoyable way. Both the game and the activities are synchronized through Big Data to feed the acceleration engine. Students access their classes directly on their app through a video conference tool with their teacher present in real time.
→ There is a support team always accessible through instant chat, reachable before, during and after the class, to make sure we have everything we need. The most convenient factor is that no additional downloads are required; you can access all conten
ts with one single click from either PC, mobile phone or tablet.
What's the outcome of all of this?
The best language teachers
There are many, many language teachers out there. But what makes a teacher better than another is essentially motivation. As with any activity: a good motivation will determine better results. The best thing about the whole Oxinity system is the quality of its teachers, because a → happy teacher will give better classes. The flexibility they also benefit from, the freedom to teach when it suits them best and the possibility of adjusting their personal schedules gives them a life quality that is rarely found in other models. They can operate freely as they are not subject to fixed schedules. This condition motivates practically anyone, and in this case it is directly perceived in the classes and the outcomes; it is noticeable in the quality of the teaching.
But most important of all, at Oxinity, teachers do not compete with each other to offer the cheapest price. Buying at low prices will always be expensive, because → a teacher who is demotivated by low pay will never be able to sustain high quality over time. And what must always come first is quality.
