Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.

Learning English - App for absolute beginner

    Would anyone be able to recommend an app (or something else) for an absolute beginner who wants to learn English? The lady in question speaks Portuguese (mother tongue) and Spanish (Second language). I read the reviews for Babbel (speech recognition isn't reliable) and Duolingo (virtually unusable because of all the ads). I suggested she take a few classes, but with Covid there's very little to be found. She's not in Ireland and her budget is very limited

    Any suggestions would be very welcome.
