NEW YORK, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- EF Englishtown is the world's best website for learning English, according to TopTenReviews, one of the world's leading sites specializing in independent and impartial product reviews.

"If you want to learn English online, Englishtown is your best option," says TopTenReviews, which gives it the Gold Award in its "Learn English" category for the third straight year. "Englishtown.com offers better instruction, more learning options, and more opportunities to connect with other students than any other learn English web service we reviewed."

EF Englishtown - www.englishtown.com - scored higher than other services including LiveMocha and Rosetta Stone. The website was boosted by a ten out of ten score for both "Quality of Instruction" and "Variety of Offerings". In its impartial assessment of language sites, TopTenReviews said it had rated EF Englishtown Number One because of its "comprehensive course offerings, speech-recognition technology and live tutors." The voice-recognition technology "coaches you on pronunciation by showing you right and wrong sounds, and it lets you keep trying until you say a word perfectly," says the review.

"The combination of social media, mobile and game functions is making it ever easier to achieve real progress in learning English, and to have fun and make friends at the same time," said Dr. Enio Ohmaye, CTO of EF Englishtown. "But the opportunities unleashed by the internet's growing sophistication also make it ever more challenging for language websites to stay at the top. We're delighted that a leading independent review site has once more recognized our efforts to remain at the cutting edge of learning technology."

TopTenReviews also mentions EF Englishtown as the best website for both beginners and advanced students trying to pass standard tests.
