    Smile Duolingo

    I can already read a lot in English, I'm only having trouble with pronouncements.

    I've found Pimsleur courses to be helpful in learning Spanish because they focus on spoken conversation. We have Spanish, German and French, though those are all intended for English speakers to learn the respective language. I have only completed the Spanish one so far, but it has helped. They won't make you sound like a native speaker on their own, but I'm able to converse in general conversations and follow a large part of what is said (though still slow). Anyhow, I've paid around 100 USD for the full 5 box set courses used on ebay.

    All that said, I don't know if they make a Learn English course.

    I personally like Duolingo, but not as my main learning tool. I always use it as an extra, for practice. Grammar notes do exist for most courses, but you have to use the website to see them. I use other educational resources like https://writinguniverse.com/free-ess...ahatma-gandhi/ . I always go to the website to read the notes for a new skill, but I use the app the rest of the time.

    I play around with Duolingo as well. My girlfriend and I will do German, Italian and Russian on it.

    I like it. The German and Italian ones are pretty straight forward, but I'm constantly having to explain to my old lady things that aren't very clear in Russian.

    I don't think you can ever actually learn a language entirely off it, but it's something to do.
