Those wishing to learn English can purchase courses online through language sites such as Rosetta Stone or schools such as the University of Arizona. Some companies, such as Mango Languages, allow learners to access their courses online through their local library for free. Library patrons can check with their libraries to see if English language courses are available.

For example, as of 2015, Rosetta Stone has courses in over 30 languages, such as Spanish, Mandarin and Tagalog. Mango languages offers programs in over 60 languages. These courses are often self-paced.
