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
What about : arrive at school or arrive school? Is it correct without a preposition?
Thanks for your answer very much.
study a language....thatīs what you do at university
and I'd say: I arrive at school
