    Loonking for English courses in London (focused on pronunciation and heardind)

    Hi there,
    I am moving to London next month, I am learning english since I was 10 years old, but my problem is that, here in Spain english courses most of the time are focused on reading and writing, so there is a big gap between my reading/writing skills and my
    pronunciation and herading skills, so I am looking for some English course in London focused on pronunciation and on hearding.

    I have seen that Callan method, it's nice, but I dont like the idea of spending the whole hour just repeating a phrase that a teacher says. I want a course in which I have to think a little bit more, for example, teacher says a phrase, and you have
    to say it in an interreogative form, past , present , conditional, or you have to ask that question to some other person.
    So I think I am looking for an English course that is a mix of Callan and classic methods.
    It will be a good idea if the teachers know spanish, because they can contrast and highlightme the differences between both languages (english and spanish)
    Where can I find schools or places in wich
    I can learn with that mix I mean? (not very expensives :) )

    Hello and welcome to the forum. I will leave the question of what may or may not be a good course in London to others, as I don't live there. However, I have made some corrections to your post. The corrections include some things that it is important for you to note and to practice before you get here.

    - Remember to capitalise the names of languages at all times (English, Spanish etc)
    - Don't put a space before a comma
    - Throughout your post, I have changed "hearding", "herading" to "listening". I assume that you meant to type "hearing" (from the verb "to hear") but that's not the appropriate verb. With language, we talk about "listening skills".

    I hope you have a great time in London!
