There a many ways you can practise and improve your English and here are some of them:
book an English course at a language school in your country or abroad
go on a trip to the US/UK/Australia
buy a language software program
sign up for an online English course at EnglishTown or any other website
book Skype sessions with an English teacher
I'm sure you know a number of things you could add to this list but what do these options have in common? Yes, they all cost money! For example, you can only learn English at a language school if you pay for the course. As soon as you stop paying the school, it stops teaching you. Since learning and practising a language is a life-long process, you need to pay all your life if you want an English teacher to teach you.
Now, how much money are you planning to spend on improving your English? Let's say you want to learn English in an English class. Did you know that this method of learning could easily cost you several hundred dollars or Euros every month? Can you afford that? clearly not if you don't have a well-paid job. And if you do have a well-paid job, you actually might not need a paid English class because your English is already good enough to read articles, watch movies and listen to audio books in English.
You might know the saying 'The best things in life are free'. So what are your alternatives to paid English courses? Free materials, services and resources of course! And where do you find them? You probably already know the answer: at www.english-test.net
