Personal impression

The site is very neat and welcoming. It has clear navigation, and the speakers in the audio files sound really friendly, so the atmosphere is very nice.

The English language they are using is up-to-date and modern.

There are plenty of lessons to improve your level of English, step by step.

However, I did see some problems:

The pronunciation recording software didn't seem to work for me, but maybe it has something to do with my own software.

Another problem I encountered was that the videos took a long time to load. So it wasn't so convenient. (The audio files, on the other hand, worked perfectly well...)

The lessons themselves are pretty good, with the following exceptions:

If you hardly know anything in English – it seems to be of too high level for you. You should have some basic knowledge in English to start.

Also, in some cases I noticed the teachers using vocabulary that was a bit too advanced for the level of the lesson. So you really need to make sure you understand what they say, and use a good dictionary when you don't.

Other than that, englishclass101.com seems like a fun place for learning English online, and of course you have the FREE trial period to judge for yourself.
