People have greater need for communication today. This need is existing so broadly, in science, technology, finance, and many other areas. This is because we are living more tightly together than any time before.

In English speaking countries, learners have opportunities to experience how the language is used lively in different situations. I used to regard English as a subject, like physics or chemistry. What is printed in the text books is the rule and is always true and correct. But now I see English as a language which is used by people, and people can be different. So English has a set of rules which is grammar and spelling, above that most people following a customed pattern, but very creative writers or users or pioneers in internet or youth language using them out of the boundaries.

I passed my FCE, at Anglschool in London, where I also repeated my CAE after attending Mercers College in Ware, Hertfordshire.

Most country’s language is English without it people cannot communicate well. I think the advantages of studying English in an English-speaking country would be learning faster, doors of opportunities and priority in terms of business or applying for a job. Yes, I’d love to study English in the UK and I prefer in London.

Thank you for your resources. English is widely used. Almost all of the important articles and works are written in English. It's very lucky for students to study English in an English-speaking country because we can have conversations with native speakers. And we can also well understand English culture in an English-speaking country. If I have the opportunity to learn English in England, I'd like to go to London. Because it's the capital or center of England.

Hello again Ilana,

Answering users' questions is an important part of our work, but other tasks keep us very busy as well. We respond as quickly as we can, but sometimes it can take a few days.

Hi Kirk,
Thanks for your reply but I think I couldn't explain my doubt correctly.
How can I know that you have answered my questions? where do I have to look for them?
thanks again,
Ilana

Hello ilanabeim,

I'm afraid I'm not sure I understood, nor understand, what you mean. Our answers, like this one and my previous, appear just under your questions. Do you mean that you asked a question on another page that we haven't answered yet?

Best wishes,
Kirk
