When it comes to choosing the best option, the class schedule, travel time, and price are usually negative features of any course.

One very good option, which more and more students from around the world have decided to try, is online learning.

By choosing an online English course, you can study from anywhere at any time you want. On top of that, online courses offer very competitive prices that don’t exist in the world of face-to-face classes.

This list of all the key points will help you choose the best learning method for your needs and expectations.

If you’ve decided to sign up for an online English course and have already started looking for the best online course, you know just how many options are out there. Don’t panic! We’re here to help you find the best option for you. To do so, you should keep these key points in mind during your search:

  • Find a digital English academy.

This will help you make sure that the course has been designed by educators and linguists and that it follows a curriculum that guarantees success.

  • Find a course that can prove its effectiveness.

There are studies that prove the effectiveness of online courses. If you truly want to learn, you should demand to see these studies. You can also look for testimonials from other students.

  • Find a course with teachers that help you learn.

One worry that many students have before choosing an online course is that they will be completely alone. Is there only a robot behind the computer screen? Will someone be there if they have a question?

Learning English online does not mean you have to give up on having the help and guidance of a teacher. You can learn at home at the time you choose and can contact your teacher whenever you need them. If that teacher is a native speaker, even better!

  • It’s important to get official certificates.

Learning effectively is the first objective. Demonstrating what you have learned should be the second. This is especially true if you are learning English for work, which is also where you’ll probably need an official certificate to prove your level.

  • The best online English courses include all levels.

Find a course that works with all of the levels in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). That means, it should go from A1 (Beginner) to C1 (Business). This will let you start from scratch and improve at your own pace.

  • Finally, we recommend practicing speaking.

The ultimate goal when learning a language course is communication. For that reason, expressing yourself orally is going to be one of the central points that you’ll need to work on. There is only one way to learn to speak English and that is through practice.

If the course offers the possibility of taking online English classes to practice conversation, you’ll have gained a lot.


Here is a checklist to help you find the best online English course so that you can achieve your goals in no time.

  • Try it. Free trial periods let you decide if you like a course without obligations. At ABA English, you can enjoy a 7-day free trial.
  • When you find the right course for you, decide when and where you are going to study. Create a study plan for yourself.. If you need help, ask for it. The same goes for advice.
  • Decide which device you are going to use to study. If the course is compatible with all of your devices (computer, mobile phone, and tablet), it’ll be easier for you to create a good study routine.
  • Take advantage of the help and guidance offered by your native teacher
  • Curiosity is your friend. Explore what the course has to offer you. 
  • English is everywhere, take advantage of it! Music, videos, and articles in English are easy to find. The internet offers an infinite number of free resources that you can use to practice your English. In addition to keeping up with your course, practice! 
  • Set a goal that you want to reach and go for it! If you are persistent and dedicated, you’ll achieve what you set out to do.

“I’m satisfied with the work I’ve done so far. The effort made has really paid off. I’m hooked on this enjoyable course. I now study whenever I have free time instead of doing a crossword or sudoku. I used to think I needed a physical academy and this course has TOTALLY changed my opinion. To sum up, this method is the best one. This time I’ll really speak English!
