Some may think that while there are many ways to study English, living in an English-speaking country is the most favorable way. I totally agree with this statement as the frequency to speak English is the most pivotal factor to acquire the language.
To begin with, nowadays, thanks to development of the internet, those who wish to learn English can easily find out the effective and cheap ways to study the language. Especially, interactive courses such as speaking lessons through video calls contribute to improving their efficiency of study. For instance, before the internet, there were mainly two ways to learn English in non-native countries; one is to buy materials and to learn by themselves and the other is to find a native teacher to teach them. While the former was cheap but not effective because they cannot ask anyone when they have any questions, the latter is vice versa: effective but expensive. Online lessons using the internet solved this trade-off. As this shows, there is also the other ways to master English than living in an English native contry.
This, however, does not mean that learning online is the best way. Although online lessons bring benefits to those who live in non-native countries, the efficacy still does not outcompete that of living in an English native country. The biggest difference is the frequency of speaking in English. By living in these countries, one has to speak whole a day from going out to coming back, or from waking up to going to bed if he or she lives with host families. By doing this, he or she has clealy more opportunities to speak English than those who learn by the internet lessons few hours a day even utmost.
In conclusion, even though there are some fascinating ways to learn English in non-English-speaking countries such as online lessons, considering the density of learning, I believe that the best way is to live in an English-speaking country.
