F.A.Q.

How long does it take to learn the English language?

It is possible to learn in four years if you study at least three hours a week. This way you will develop a satisfactory conversation level. But remember that it is easier for some people to learn than others. Three hours a week is a minimum for learning in four years and the process should not be interrupted. A short break at holiday times is always good. Just don´t exagerate on the time off because things can get forgotten.

What are auxiliary verbs?

Auxiliary verbs are words that have a grammatical function. We use them in some verb structures, to express negative sentences, interrogative formats for answers in the predicate, short answers, tag questions, and emphatic expressions.

Which is the best way to learn, study and develop a language?

Try to make it part of your life. Study hard and pay attention in class, do homeworks, and try to develop your own texts using similar structures that you already know and selecting vocabulary from, again, a list of words you already know. Remember that this must become part of your life and routine. Try to identify things that are in your day to day which you would like to express in English and try to do so.

Which is the best learning method?

There is no best method. The points to be taken into consideration are whether the planning suits your needs and if you feel comfortable following a certain method. At Gavin's English Course we tailor the course for you.

Where to go abroad?

"Where would you like to go?". Actually, it's not quite that simple, is it? The anwer is to first choose the country and/or institution which best attends your needs, conditions, benefits and so on. Second, make sure it is a rational decision. Do not go moved by a nice place or status. And, most important, do not go in a group of people you know. The tendency is to stick together and speak the common language and you won't take full advantage of being abroad to improve your language skills. There are many specialised institutions that can recommend courses abroad.

Which is the best school?

There is no best school. The question is which one suits your needs. The points to be taken into consideration are whether the planning suits your needs and if you feel comfortable following a certain method. At Gavin's English Course we tailor the course for you.

Which are the best books and dictionaries?

The best ones are the oes that are easily understood. Avoid any kind of books with translated phrases and with examples of what would be incorrect. Books that contain exaples of mistakes call a lot of attention to mistakes and students often remember an incorrect format rather than a correct format because the wrong one is usually a direct translation or a common learner's mistake.
