You´re welcome, buddy.
I am not saying that by using a given method or course, A, B or C, one isn´t going to learn. If someone has some money on him, that´s okay, even desirable to learn more things and trying/combining some methods.
What I don´t subscribe to, is the idea of the learner going from zero to, say, pre-intermediate (wich would be recommendable if to match a good standard).
Well, I know these days English is everywhere, I am not to say that somebody has to learn at my or anyone´s of eons ago. But, I do think there´s many things to cover, so it´s not a cinch as many would think, unless the guy makes some immersion, studies abroad, live with some native, etc.
Anyway regard my comments, current and the previous one, just as an opinion.
Others are free to say about their experience and and may disagree or offer let us know about other ways/course/methods etc.
And excuse me, if my previous commentary may seem pushy or "patronizing", wich I didn´t mean at all. Indeed what I meant was to incentive the discussion, you know, sometimes we don´t express ourselves well.
