EF Englishtown, an EF Education First company, is the world's best consumer website for learning English, according to TopTenReviews (TTR), one of the world's leading sites specialising in independent and impartial product reviews. EF Englishtown operates using the same online platform and learning methodology as EF's Online School for businesses and professionals.
"If you want to learn English online, Englishtown is your best option", says TopTenReviews, which gives it the Gold Award in its 'Learn English' category for the third year running.
"Englishtown.com offers better instruction, more learning options, and more opportunities to connect with other students than any other learn English web service we reviewed."
EF Englishtown scored higher than other services such as Livemocha and Rosetta Stone. The website was boosted by a ten out of ten score for both 'Quality of Instruction' and 'Variety of Offerings'.
In its impartial assessment of language sites, TopTenReviews said it had rated EF Englishtown as number one because of its "comprehensive course offerings, speech-recognition technology and live tutors".
The voice-recognition technology "coaches you on pronunciation by showing you right and wrong sounds, and it lets you keep trying until you say a word perfectly", says the review.
President Christoph Wilfert, President at EF Corporate Language Learning Solutions, commented: "We are delighted that EF Englishtown has been recognized for its excellence in English language learning for the third year in a row. The users of our Online School benefit from all the features that have singled out EF Englishtown as the clear leader in language learning technology."
