Hi everyone, I am Italian but I currently live in London. I relocated here with my husband two years ago. It was a brave choice and a great challenge for me. I never studied English in my country so at first everything was difficult. Anyway, after two years my balance is very positive. Living abroad is a great opportunity to learn many things, meet new people and know a different culture. I have to improve yet my English, but living in the UK is definitely the best way to do it.

Hi, I am a journalist and a TV-Reporter. My program is about films. I always take an interview from directors and actors. I would like to know some advantages about British journalism, and what kind of information, maybe sites you will advice me to look for. Thank you.

Hello Kinoman,

This isn't really something that we here at LearnEnglish have expertise in as we are not journalists ourselves and our focus is on the English language rather than journalism per se. However, this page might be of interest to you.

The British Council does work with journalists, and here are some links which you might find helpful:

Journalism for social good

Journalism for social good (wave 2)

I would also recommend that you contact some of the main British representatives of journalism, such as the BBC, the Guardian and the Independent.

I hope those links are helpful.

Best wishes,

Thank you, this information is really helpful.

I have never studied abroad.If I can I would like to study in Poland.It will be a great experience for me because I will have the opportunity to improve my English.During my study I would like to live with the other students from different countries because I want to have friends from different countries.
If I want to have a good job in my country I have to know English. That's why I learn English every day and use this beautiful site.

I just came back from Madrid I've been studied there since this January, it was an amazing experience, I stayed in an appartament with seven people, I had my own room but I shared the bath and the kitchen. I had the opportunity to improve my english with some of them but the most significant experience were when I went to a trip around europe.
At the very begining it was so difficult for me to stay in a different continent and by myself because it was the first time I was far away from my family, I tryed to enjoyed everything in order to not to feel sad or stressed and at the end I learnt many things being alone and I met many kind people. I hardly recomend to everyone to study abroad it has been the most unbelievable experience in my life so far.

she said we went everyday instead of we go everyday because here we have a daily habit i'm i right

Hello youssef sasuke,

Both of these can describe habits. The difference is that 'went' describes something in the past which is no longer true while 'go' describes something which is still true.
