Okay, okay. I was in a hurry…you know.  Got up a little later than usual. Skipped breakfast.  Dashed between meetings. So I stopped off at a local McDonald’s for an early lunch.  A side salad with low fat balsamic vinaigrette dressing and a cup of coffee would do.

Then I realized a trip to McDonald’s is like studying online English. I know.  I know. You just think that because I am the CEO of TalkToCanada.com, a large online English company that I’m always trying to pitch English learning.  That’s not it.  I do other stuff.  I have a wife and a wonderful baby son, and a pet goldfish. I shoot baskets and go to the beach. But, really, eating at McDonald’s and learning English online both share the same 3-C’s.

You might be thinking. Just what are the 3-C’s?  Well, let me tell you. I’ve got a few minutes to spare ‘til my next meeting. The 3-C’s…convenience, choices and cost. I’m pretty confident You’ll enjoy the difference between learning English online and McDonalds!
