4. Self-paced learning
Most of the people who learn English as a second language probably went through compulsory schools. You were forced to sit in a classroom repeating and memorizing vocabulary and phrases.

After years of compulsory learning, you finally completed your studies and you stopped practising your English. As expected, your English prowess became sloppy. What do you do now when you need to improve your English for business or personal reasons? Do you go back to the classroom system you detested?
