The first dilemma that a student of English must face is to study an intensive English course or an extensive course. This brief article will clarify each point and benefit of each option to be able to choose the most appropriate decision for yourself. About – Intensive Courses Espanol stated not "officially" but considered that a course is intensive when comprises a duration of five hours a week or more. Language schools in Spain tend to have at your disposal with intensive programs containing about two hours per day. For this intensity, the course will extend over a period of time shorter than the extended language course. About – Extensive Courses Espanol extensive courses lasts less than five hours a week, usually consist of one or two sessions a week for two hours in total. A course of this caliber will study many weeks to begin to take effect.

The term "extensive" derives from the fact that the course is spread over a time longer or extended from time. So what course I choose to learn English? An individual is able to learn English in an intensive or extensive, but all vary depending on the circumstances of each student. If an individual intends to learn English sooner the better and do not mind carrying out big efforts, an intensive course is undoubtedly the best choice. Not only will you learn quickly, the concentration is not weakened during the course and student progress is more noticeable after a short time and their motivation remains. An extensive course is good to maintain a previously acquired language. Anyone residing outside the UK or a country wants to maintain the Anglo-Saxon English without making much effort, could make an extensive course. In England, an extensive course be ideal if the student's English is more than acceptable and use it constantly at work or in social life. Under these conditions, weekly lessons in English are efficient for questions, correct certain errors and to incorporate the grammatical rules in which the student had not noticed.

In turn, an extensive course might be the best option for students who, quite simply, are not long enough to project commitment to an intensive course. Finally, an extensive course appears as a cheaper option and is suitable for more modest budgets. However, short-term offers no real advantage to take the cheap option because, ultimately, the student will progress according to the number of hours spent on the classes and the same number of classes cost the same amount of money whether do a course in a short period of time (intensive course) or a longer period (extensive course). In conclusion, the decision solely up to you: if you can, choose an intensive English course to learn the maximum in minimum time. If the intensive course is not suitable to you for any reason, an extensive course will give you the same benefits but after a period of time extensive.
