Telecommunications helps in the learning of language for people or groups of people who would not normally have access to the resources that would allow them to learn the English language, and can be very beneficial to those in the US or outside with limited English language skills. Exposure, however, is key to improving language in those who already have a grasp on it.
Telecommunications, like online classes or language resource websites, can provide learning that better allows for students to set a schedule that fits their unique situation. This is because they do not require a physical meeting place at a specific time. In addition telecommunications can allow for communication that would otherwise be impossible or not practical. With video technology, people can also learn language by speaking to others and seeing their face.
