These days people, especially teenagers, try too hard and spend too much to improve their spoken English. They go to Spoken English Academy, lend their ears to Unprofessional Trainers and finally end up losing their money for nothing more than a mere certificate. Moreover, barely can one digest the fact that the Fast track courses in English are doing good to the forward-looking learners. Seems a good subject to gossip!!!
