There is no right or wrong. I learned English when I was a child, and I still think children can learn it better. However, adults can understand the process better so either will work. Some say Continental is faster, but since I've knit English so long, any other way doesn't feel like 'knitting' to me.
Try both and see which feels more comfortable to you. Crocheters often like continental because the yarn is held in the left hand for both.
