Learning English

I have been trying to improve my English, it is one of my 2020 new year resolutions. I consider my reading and vocabulary adequate, but my grammar and speaking still need to be improved. I have decided to upgrade my grammar first.

I started with Duolingo. Duolingo is fun but doesn’t provide explanation about the grammar. They only gives questions and tells us the right answer. Duolingo was uninstalled a few weeks later.

After several searching, I found BBC Learning English app. You can find the Android application here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=uk.co.bbc.learningenglish&hl=en_US. BBC Learning English has several programs, one of which is grammar (yes!). We can freely choose topics that interest us. Unfortunately they don’t provide structured learning steps.

Despite completing most of the interesting grammar lessons, I still have BBC Learning English on my mobile for future reference. In addition, almost every day they post new articles.

I’m currently taking an online course from the British Council on the Future Learn website. You can check the courses here: https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/short-courses-futurelearn. Since it is a course, they provide structured steps.
