The amount of resources is simply... well, overwhelming ;)

So let's put some order in place.

You want to learn English – great!

Where do you start?

There are many FREE resources, such as this site, where you can learn new things and improve your English.

The benefits?

It's free :)

In other words, very accessible.

FREE resources

The downsides?

A website typically needs funding to run, and so you will probably get some advertisement in your way.

Another point I've noticed on free English resource sites is that they tend to be more general.

What I mean is that you have many different pages, on many different subjects – which can be very helpful. However, they are rarely organized into a path. And when I say path, I mean a structured series of lessons, divided into levels, which you can follow at your own pace. You can advance from one lesson to the next, and in the end achieve your goal: a very natural, usable English.

So as I was saying, the main downside of the many wonderful free English resource sites is that they lack this detailed plan.

a path

So where to find this structured series of lessons?

A good place to go to is the online English course.

Fully featured online courses usually require a subscription fee (for example $10 per month). This can seem like a downside, but I actually think there is something really good about it. I know that if I pay for something, rather than getting it for free, then there are much more chances I would actually be using it. And courses don't work unless you use them, right? ;)

The next thing to know about paid online courses is that they tend to be more advanced: interactive lessons, audio lessons, video lessons, exercises, your own member's area where you can track progress, and much much more.

All these things are very nice, but there is one major issue that is the key point:

Because these are actual courses, you get to learn and practice LESSON AFTER LESSON, and so gradually improve your level of English. It is harder to get distracted that way ;)

So this was a rather long introduction, and now we get to the actual Reviews Section. In this section you can find reviews for different English sites, to help you find the best one for you!
