you know English very well, we expect you to be able to make good progress in your fluency level, using these books as a self-study course, in about 3 months.
this doesnt mean that everybody will take exactly 3
months to learn from the self-study books or that nobody
will take more than 3 months. That is, theres nothing
really rigid about the 3-month period. You see, the kind of
study youll be doing with these self-study books is
self-directed self-study, and so youre free to learn
from the self-study books at your own pace. Within a few days
with the self-study books, most learners would be able to
find their own speed and rhythm for the study. But the way
some learners pace themselves would be different from the
way other learners would. And so the exact period in which
a learner is able to complete the self-directed teaching-cum-learning
process would vary from learner to learner.
a great extent, the duration of the self-study course you
do on your own also depends on how well you know English at
present. If your present knowledge of English is very
good, youre likely to make good progress in your fluency
level even before the 3-month period is up. But if
your present knowledge of English cannot be called very
good, but is just fairly good or average,
youre likely to take 3 months or perhaps longer to make good progress.
also depends on the amount of time you spend in learning from
the self-study books. To get quick results, some learners
need to spend about 3 hours a day (on an average) in
2 or 3 sittings. But some learners would find that they need
to spend only about an hour or two a day.
you see, the 3-month period is the median period that
most learners who know good English would find necessary.
