What does one need to know in order to start-up an online language school? What kind of communication strategy do you need to deploy? What marketing tools suit best? Where do you find students? How about advertisement? Pricing policy?
All of these questions are in the minds of many who see a chance of using ICT to realise their dream of an own school.
About Monica Thomas
Monica Thomas is the director of online English language schools Ad_Lib English and Ad_Lib Business. The company came to existence in September 2008. Initially, its services were directed at the Polish community in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. In July 2009, Ad_Lib English opened up to the world accepting students from countries as diverse as Saudi Arabia and the Russian Federation. With over 1,200 registered users, we believe that Ad_Lib English is at the beginning of a difficult but exciting journey.
