One note: sometimes some websites tend to use one ‘kind’ of English: American or British. It depends on the country of the web.

Why you should learn English online: it’s flexible (time  and place), you can control your own learning (speed  and need),  and it’s FREE!

Last words from me:

“Don’t waste your money & bandwidth for something useless & meaningless. Spend them wisely! Learn English online!”
