    "I really love taking online courses, you can learn about anything and it's affordable and convenient. The thing is that somethimes things get slow and then you break your groove, so a good fast browser like Brave is necessary"

      "This app looks like a fairly solid assistant to learning a language. I don't know that it would be enough on its own, but to have as a supplement to another method, you could get a lot of practice with it. The idea of being connected with other users to learn the language is good, though I don't know how well it works. The reviews are fairly average, so it might not be perfect."

      "Busuu is a great app because it allows the user to pick the pace they want to learn. If there's someone that feels they aren't being challenged, they can step that up when they choose. If someone feels too challenged, they can slow it down so they aren't discouraged. Highly recommended."
