Mobiledu offers users the opportunity to learn English inexpensively, on their own time and even on the move. Users who study ETS content through Mobiledu can obtain scientific and systematic learning materials and methods, which are more convenient, effective, targeted and comprehensive than those users might search for on the Internet.
