    learn or study / arrive

    Hi again,

    I have some difficulties with other words, too.

    You learn a language, for example English, but when can you say that one studies English?

    I have come across with both uses.

    The other word which gives me a hard time is arrive.

    arrive at places
    arrive in towns/countries
    arrive home


    What about : arrive at school or arrive school? Is it correct without a preposition?

    Thanks for your answer very much.
