How much does it cost to learn English? Difficult question. It all depends on several factors:

- The desired level.
There are 1000 and 1 ways to learn English, costing from 0 to infinity. Let's talk about the options for learning English and their costs?
Language school education
You can study at a language school both in your hometown and abroad. In the first case, you can find quite budget options: from 500 rubles per academic hour, depending on the city, the level of the language school, the qualifications of teachers, etc. If you decide to study at a foreign language school, allocate more for this business - and without taking into account the cost of the flight, accommodation, meals, etc. On the one hand, it is expensive, but if you imagine that a good language level will give you the opportunity to enter a prestigious foreign university - not so much, right?
Absolutely free training

The option is suitable for those who already have a base and those who decided to learn the language from scratch. Stock up on patience and perseverance - it will come in handy!
