"I've never done any English course at all."

"I never took any English course."


Is these sentences right?

Yes, they are, but it would depend on the context ad the time periods you are referring to. In the second, does never refer to a specific period in your life or do you mean at no time in your life?

I was using Never in this case, to show that in my entire life, I haven't done such thing. (Which in this case is "studied English at courses")

So the time period that I'm referring to is my entire past life.


Thank you for your answer Tdol!

It's a fairly common in colloquial usage, but the present perfect sounds better to me.
