I've taken well over 1000 language lessons online, so I've had a wide variety of teachers, and experienced a lot of different teaching styles. I study aspect of a language except for conversation by myself, so when I talk to a teacher I just want a casual chat. I state my preferences when I request a lesson, and let the teacher decide if they are comfortable teaching me. I type "I'd like a 100% L2 conversation, no corrections and no fixed topics, if possible."
Stating "no corrections" causes concerns with some teachers. Some even try to draw me into a debate about learning styles before they have even accepted the class. That being said, I haven't had a single person reject my class because I ask for no corrections. Unfortunately, some teachers forget when we finally have our class, and some will even try to debate me again during our class time, Gasp!
It's a very small percentage of teachers who oppose my method like this; maybe 1%. But many others would prefer to correct me. I've explained why I do it this way, but regardless of my reasons most people disagree with me. That's the nice thing about one-on-one classes. I am the boss, and as long as the teacher agrees beforehand, they are required to do things my way.
Rather than explain why I don't get corrected in my lessons, and losing the argument again, I'd like to hear from you. Do you ever take online, one-on-one classes? What kind of corrections, if any, do your prefer?
