Is it ‘squash’, ‘quash’ or ‘cosh’? Do you mean ‘here’, ‘hair’ or ‘hare’? How can ‘flat’ have two very different meanings? Yes, English is a strange language full of quirky spellings and weird pronunciations that can make it hard for a non-speaker to master it. Why are ‘threw’ and ‘through’ said the same way when they are spelt differently and mean totally different things? Our free English language courses will help you get to grips with sentence structure, spelling, idioms and much more around this complex tongue.

It is beneficial to have a basic understanding of English because so much of the modern world uses it. The majority of websites on the Internet are written in English as well as many academic journals. If you want to further your career or work outside your home country, then knowing as much English as possible is very helpful.
Some people say it is difficult because while it has lots of rules for spelling, syntax, grammar and pronunciation, there are many exceptions to these rules that speakers have to remember. We say that English is much easier to learn if you start with basic courses specially designed to help newcomers and if you practice what you’ve learnt every day. Because courses are free, there is no limit to the number of English modules you can do on Alison.
