Welcome everyone. I'm Canadian but living in Scotland. The last time I studied anything was forty years ago … I'm a bit nervous! Good luck, everyone!

If a online course is high quality and very well managed, it can save both money and time.

It's a great opportunity to be able to study online, as you can easily do it during your free time, and this will not affect your main job.

I think that online studying is easier and save money and time to students. So, any person can learn more by registration in many courses and improve his skills and knowledge. Also, you can meet a lot of people from different countries. You can make new friends, and you'll know more about the traditions and habits of other societies.
