Let’s list the other stereotypes of learning English. Make sure you forget them as soon as you finish reading this post.
According to some educators, a school gives us basic knowledge that will help us throughout life. Surely you remember school English texts about all sorts of unknown characters that you had to learn by heart. How much effort you might have made to remember all words and texts that your teacher assigned.
If you are still a beginner, it will be difficult for you in a Skype class. There is a misconception that a native speaker is "cool", better than a local teacher. In general, students are rather sceptical about their teachers: "They are boring, they have been teaching the language for 15-20 years with obsolete textbooks, they do not master modern vocabulary".
Life does not stand still: people have been always looking for the best language courses, and today, the study of English via Skype is very popular. The main question with this method is which instructor to choose: a local one or a native speaker. One can argue that it may be expensive, and there can be time zone differences, etc.
