Learning English

One must take into consideration several factors when it comes to learning English. Dedication is an undeniable element in the aid in learning any language and we must not allow the routine in our lives to trouble the necessary commitment to learning. It is possible to learn attending a few hours a month and doing some extra work.

Gavin's English Course offers an individualised programme to assist in learning. English must become part of one's routine.

English is a traditional language by nature. Words are articulated to give emphasis to a sequence or to be straight forward with simple words. Once this outstanding feature of the language has been made clear, anyone is ready to start learning. All you need is to accept the fact that you are learning a completely new language.

Even though dedication is an undeniable element in the aid in learning any language, there are some obstacles in our lives, which are very difficult to dribble. Routine is one of them. In order to learn English, we must be committed to the challenge and make it part of our routine. The time it takes to learn is very subjective because some people do learn faster than others and can develop a feeling and understanding of the language with ease. It is possible to learn attending a few hours a month and doing some extra work. The point is to make sure that this time is well distributed. The hours in class must be followed by hours of study.

Gavin's English Course can offers an exclusive individual programme to assist people with time limitations. English must become part of one's routine. The more one is in touch with the language and the shorter the intervals, the faster one will learn.

It is common for learners to say that they don't have a good vocabulary level. This is no excuse. Vocabulary is developed over a period of time and it is one of those things that gets forgotten if not practised. You do not need a profound knowledge of vocabulary to lead a conversation. Use what you know to learn more. Avoid associating new words with any other language.

When it comes to structures, a simple question: "What's your name?" can be the base to many other questions. There are so many variations for this structure that students never realise the simplicity in the number of alternatives which can be applied to this one structure in order to lead a conversation. Of course a little vocabulary does, indeed, help.

Observe how many variations can be derived from a basic, well known structure. The base question is: "What is your name?"

  • What is your name?
  • What is your address?
  • What is your phone number?
  • What is your problem?

And if we change the person, we can repeat all the questions just by selecting the right possessive pronoun. The same is valid for other interrogative formats, the verb for the plural, and so on. Naturally, the answers to each of these questions are structurally the same. It is common for people to not realise how simple it is to make alterations to basic structures. Gavin's English Course assists people to develop this feeling.

English, however, is not so easy to learn because there are many words that that have more than one meaning. Also some words, like have, for example, may be a verb, a causative, or a grammatical function.

What we do at Gavin's English Course is to blend all of this into an understandable format. We use a pre developed situation which can be reproduced in our routines and adapt the structures in order to make one simple structure become flexible and applicable in more than one situation. There are many different schools in town. What we offer at Gavin's English Course is a fun way of learning and an exclusive programme made to fit the individual's rhythm and need.
