Cavendish’s tips to learn English

Learning doesn’t have a time limit. It doesn’t matter if you are 9 years old or 90, it’s always a good moment to learn new skills. Our school, Cavendish School of English, has been teaching English for 36 years and we offer a wide range of programmes for all ages, all year round. Not too many schools can say the same!

If learning English is your new goal, we would like to give you some tips in order to help you with your English-learning process.

C – CULTURE. Learning a language is not just about grammar and vocabulary. It’s about communicating with people who have different ways of thinking as well as speaking

A – A SESSION OF 15 MINUTES EVERY DAY to study English will give you better results than if you try to study for 3 hours in one session. Take breaks!

V – VOCABULARY. Try to learn a new word every day. Don’t be shy and try to use every new word you learn, too.

E – EXPERIENCE.  Study English abroad in a native English environment. You will learn quicker and you will also have a fantastic experience that you won’t forget.

N – NOW.  Don’t leave it for later. Learning a language takes a long time, so the sooner you start, the better.

D – DON’T TRANSLATE EVERYTHING.  Avoid this temptation. The reason is that if you literally translate every single word of a sentence, it will probably sound terrible to a native speaker.

I – IDENTIFY YOUR MOTIVATION.  Like any goal, learning a language is always easier and more fun if you have a reason to do so. For example to get a job, travel or impress someone special…

S – SURROUND YOURSELF WITH ENGLISH. Make English friends, watch movies or series in English, listen to English music and try to understand the lyrics, read in English…

H – HAVE FUN.  Learning a language does take work, but you’ll be more likely to stick to it if you are enjoying yourself.
