    Talking Preposition

    Please, can you help me?

    In the sentence: "I study at Speak Now." (Suppose this is the name of the school, then I can't say "at the Speak Now, right?) , so how do some books bring sentences like: "Study at the London school"? Isn't it the name of the school?

    Thanks

    Right, you would say, "I study at Speak Now."

    If it was the name of the school it would be spelled London School.

    That's correct. Use 'the' if it's part of the school's name (A) or if specifying a location. If Speak Now is a chain school, has more than one location, then use 'the' (B).

    (A) I study English at the YMCA.
    (B) I study English at the Speak Now in Boston.
