Dear Sir or Madam,

I have started to learn English on this website and I would like to know how to do it with maximum efficiency?

Do you have some tips about how to learn languages or how to learn in general?

Thank you for your help.

Regards,
K

Hello klshnkv,

I'd recommend you first spend some time looking around the site to see what's available and that you take the level test, unless you already have a good idea of your level.

After exploring the site, start with whatever looks best to you. If nothing in particular appealed to you, I'd suggest our Skills section as a good place to start. Some of our users really like the Podcasts as well, so those might be worth trying as well.

We also have some (paid) Online courses that are quite popular that might be worth checking out.

I hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to ask us more questions.

All the best,
Kirk
