Lots of students, from all over the world, come to Britain each year to study. Nick visits Oxford University and the London School of Economics and talks to some students to find out what it's like to study in the UK.

Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.

Thank you very much Kirk


thanks just I want to suggest from learning English team to use more phrase and pro-verbs

I attended Rapid Results College, for GCE Maths, while doing return to school, at six form college called Gymnasium.

Before I began to study at Open University.

Hi! I don't understand how can i put prepositions to a window? Guess, The link doesn't work, right?
I only see white hand which stand in front of prepositions
Could you help what doest it mean?

Hi Albisha,

You should be able to drag the prepositions (the blue words at the top) into the gaps in each sentence. Just click and hold one of the blue words and drag it across with your mouse. When you've finished click 'Check answers' to see how you did, or 'Finish' to see the correct answers.

Best wishes,

Hello Amar,

Our purpose at LearnEnglish is to help our users improve their English through helping them navigate and use the site and answer questions about the language. I'm afraid that we can't help with the kinds of questions you ask us here. I expect that somewhere on Oxford University's site, there is a place where you can find such information or ask such questions.

Good luck!

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

maybe you don't have informations about that , is there anyone from the team can help ? or you just guide me where can i find the answers

thanks mr kirk ..
