How do I get high school credit?
If you have not met your high school graduation requirements for world language, we recommend you talk to your school counselor and let them know you would like to take a LanguageBird® course. Most college-prep high schools require 2 years of world language. Some high schools will have you fill out a concurrent enrollment form or ask you to send a transcript once your LanguageBird® course is complete. We are happy to work with your high school administrator and counselors!

COURSES FOR CREDIT
Accredited high school ESL courses with a private instructor at your pace and convenience.
Students build upon and increase listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in the target language. Students develop their ESL proficiency through extensive, spontaneous interaction with a native speaker in the language.
Students develop cultural awareness and become prepared to encounter real life situations outside of the classroom through discussions of cultural customs and behavior, videos, Internet research and by reading authentic materials written in the target language.
TUTORING & TEST PREP
Students receive private, one-to-one, live tutoring sessions geared toward reiterating concepts covered in their school classroom.
Tutors address any difficulties students may be having and help with homework and test preparation. Regularly scheduled lessons are recommended, rather than just for “emergency” situations. It’s best if the student consistently builds skills as well as a personal relationship with their tutor.
The lessons can also be geared toward helping students prepare for exams, including but not limited to: SAT Subject Tests, AP and fluency exams.
This is live, one-to-one communicative ESL lessons to cover elementary and intermediate grammatical structures of the ESL language, as well as vocabulary and cultural situations with a native speaker.
These lessons are designed to help students develop and mature foundational communicative skills to prepare them for everyday conversations in ESL. In addition, the student will master their fluency through the stylized nature of the course. Conversation lessons are open to students of all ages.

Our approach to education is personal, dynamic.
Innovative learning activities, unique assessments, and student directed projects engage students. Instructors take notes during each session to share with students and evaluate students over time based on personal progress. We don’t believe in timed exams. We do believe in giving students the opportunity to present what they have learned in a format and environment in which they are comfortable. Final projects are presented to the instructor during the final session of the course along with any required written components.
Why Choose an Online High School Language Program?
Enrolling your student in a LanguageBird course offers greater freedom and flexibility for their learning than what is typically found in a traditional brick-and-mortar high school environment. All of our faculty are experienced instructors in the field of education, not just native speakers. Our trained, experienced teachers love to work with high school students. Students meet with the same teacher building a relationship and skills. Students use our courses to make more room in their daily school schedule, to get ahead, make-up a class or study a language not offered at their school.
We provide students with the most personalized, one-to-one, learning experience.

Integration and multiculturalism are key elements of LanguageBird’s identity. We see languages as a way to unite people and enrich our students’ lives not only by the technical teaching of online language courses but also promoting cultural discovery. In this matter, ESL is no different than any of the languages we teach. In fact, we see English as a Second Language as a skill that is useful for everyone; even those who were born in the USA.
The Importance of Learning English as a Second Language
Learning English as a second language can be a life changer for your child’s life; both academically and personally. As for academics, ESL can give your child full knowledge of the English language to participate in school, college and university equally with native speakers. Furthermore, a full comprehension of the English language will have a positive impact on his or her life opportunities.
ESL allows your child to develop reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills in English. But it doesn’t stop there. English as a Second Language affects the mastery of mathematics, science and social studies, as an integral part of your child’s academic goals. This is particularly fundamental in the earliest levels of education and has an influence on higher education and future career opportunities.
We shouldn’t ignore socialization and the development of interpersonal skills as they go hand in hand with learning English as a Second Language. With the guidance and support of good ESL tutoring, students can achieve personal and academic success. This success leads to confidence that is necessary to build relationships, communicate with teachers and participate in their communities.

An Online ESL Tutor Lets Students Learn on their Time.
The life of high school students is actually a full-time job. Between attending classes, studying, participating in sports, partaking in other extra curricular activities like playing an instrument or participating on the debate team, and doing volunteer work (many do), there are also family obligations that play into life. This means a window of time to meet with an online ESL tutor can be minimal, and this is why high school students need an online ESL tutor who will teach them, on their time, whether that is at 6AM, 10PM or on weekends. When you invest in a high-quality online ESL tutor, you get the freedom of learning at your convenience.
