Our English school Oxford English Academy has a branch in Oxford. And it is here that you can learn English. I know the world we live in today is becoming smaller and smaller. Travelling is cheaper and easier; the internet has probably been the biggest game changer since the invention of the wheel! So why bother to learn a new language when you have things such as Google Translate at your fingertips?
Why Learn English at our English School Oxford English Academy?
According to Experience English, “English is the most commonly spoken language in the world. One out of five people can speak or at least understand English!” Master the English language so that your job prospects increase as well. Maybe a promotion is on the cards. Or that you get a position that includes travel!
But there is another reason to learn English at our English school Oxford. Apparently approximately one new word is added every two hours to the English language. Meaning about 4380 words are added to the language every year. Currently the Oxford English Corpus contains over 2 billion words, of which the average person only knows about 50000. So tell me. Do we really know English?
Our English School Oxford English Academy will help you to Master all the Vocabulary
The most common base form of words in English only make up 25% of all the words used. The question that rises from all this information is whether it is really necessary to know most of the words in English language. Considering how many times I have written the word beautiful on my previous blog posts I would say maybe a tad bit necessary. However, if I also consider that every year 4380 words are added to the billions I already don’t know, would I really catch up? I guess it’s not really about catching up or knowing all the words in the language. It’s about being able to say you are lethargic instead of saying very tired.
Take an Intensive English Course at our one of our English School Oxford English Academy
Luckily if I’m looking to try, Oxford English Academy offers an intensive English course which might just widen ones vocabulary. This will enable you to not only learn basic general English but also choose certain electives such as the IELTS Exam Preparation. This is an International English Language Testing System that assesses the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication. Meaning that it should be something that we should all be learning.
Why is an English School Oxford the Best for Learning English
I did some investigating and yes, I found lots of fun classes and courses for you to take. Dance Near You offers a variety of different styles of dance classes! Whether you sign up for fitness dance classes or want to learn a bit of street dancing, tap dancing, ballroom dancing, Latin dancing or even good old line dancing, they have it all. Why not try them all and see where your talent lies? You may surprise yourself!
Learn an Instrument
Perhaps you rather consider yourself a bit of a muso? When your English lessons are done for the day and you are feeling inspired, I would suggest checking out the First Tutors website. They will find a tutor for just about anything you can think of and I found piano and guitar lessons. Guitar lessons spiked my interest, as this is a hobby that can travel with you wherever you find yourself in the world! We know English is an important language to acquire. But the language of music is perhaps the most widely ‘spoken’ language in the world. So why not join this world of endless ‘dialects’ by learning to create your own?
Become a Lifeguard
I truly admire people who put their lives on the line for others. If you are one of these remarkable souls who have received the calling or the need to be in service of other people’s safety, a lifeguard course is just the thing for you. Leisurecentre offers this and many more water-based courses. Even if you have always wanted to learn how to swim, they also offer adult swimming lessons. It’s never too late to learn!
At Oxford English Academy we choose carefully when we decide on the location of our schools. This is because we want to offer students a holistic English-learning experience.
