BUT PLEASE REMEMBER:

The Course is Usually NOT the Problem...


The problem with language courses, in general, is that they create a great sense of hope and promise in people.

"If you buy this product, you WILL learn English".

It sounds so great doesn't it? The trick is that they omit your role in the equation.

It should say, "With our program and your effort, persistence, devotion and consistency you will learn English...with time!”

Doesn't sound the same does it? Sounds much more real...and like work!
