What general English courses including for self-study for each level can be most helpful to learners? I'm trying to explore this issue. Do you have any opinions in this regard?

Maybe self-study aids for learning English for all levels can serve as good effective English courses. As the name self-study implies learners can master English phonetics, grammar, vocabulary, conversation (listening and speaking), reading and writing on their own through clear easily understandable explanations and exercises. Can English self-study aids (books, software, websites, audio and video aids) be equally suitable for classroom teaching and learning of English? As you know there are English grammar practice books suitable for both self-study and classroom use with grammar rule explanations and exercises in English only for any level from total beginners to advanced students. What especially matters in effective teaching and learning English is how clearly and easily understandable all material is explained and what exercises (and with what content) are practised to master that material (to develop certain skills efficiently). I've prepared a list of English self-study aids. Maybe we can share information on English self-study aids and courses for all levels.
