Abstract

First of all, this research project is a descriptive one, because only two matters have been selected in order to be measured: previous English knowledge and academic achievement. The issue having to do with previous knowledge is going to be measured by asking the students if they have already had contact with English or not. It is going to be reported how many people did it, where they did it, and how long that took, for instance. The other issue is about academic achievement, and it will be described by taking into account the mere grades students have obtained in the five intensive courses of English. It is thought that the students who had already had a previous contact with the English language are the most successful ones when they make up their minds to study the degree in English language, because of the knowledge they could have acquired during the contact with the language, either where English is officially spoken or at academies of free courses for language learning. A student with a previous knowledge is supposed to have better grades, in fact, more than 7.0. He/She is supposed to pronounce in a better way, read better, and is able to understand more when having a conversation. A student like that has to be one of the best in certain subjects dealing with English language. On the other hand, it is thought that the students who have never had a previous knowledge of English are those who face academic failure in their learning process, since they do not have good language background. As a result, they do not understand well when reading or listening. In the case of listening, that might be only noise to them. Moreover, they are not able to write or speak properly. But, what If they really wish to deepen into the language? They could reach a very good level of English as time goes by.
