Yes having my opportunity to study in the UK, is my biggest dream. I had it since I finished high school, but I couldn't afford to move to London to do my Bachelor's. Now that i finished my master, i hope to save some money by doing a second job, in order to go in London for my Ph.D. The UK is providing one of the best education in world, and excellent labor for qualified people. I hope it to doesn't stay only a dream. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Simona I have seen your website and I would like to know more about your English courses. I'm interested to attend an English course for two months during the summer, in July and August. Do you offer courses during these months and do you have an available places for two people? What are the starts dates? Could you tell me about the price per month, and do you offer any discount if we come as group from 5 people. Also I'm interested in accommodation? I heard that you provide also accommodation at a reasonable price. Could you send me more information about it relate to price and what is included in the price? I would like to book in advance, but im looking to have it with two meals. Dear Rona Thank you for being interested in our summer school. Yes we have free place for those months. The start dates are from 1s and 15th August, you can choose which suits you. The regulat price is 100 per month, but if will come as group from 5 people i will make you a discount in total price for 20%, that mean you have to pay just 160 per two month.

Im attaching more photos, and other detail information about the acoomodation. Please leave me know if you want to book acoomodation, because we have just few place available.

I don't think studying in the UK is the option for me but I badly want to visit that country with all your history, architecture, literature and of course Premier League. I'm a huge fan of this stuff and a trip to England is my dream.

Dear Sir or Madam, I've seen the website of your Japanese courses for beginners. I've been studying Japanese by myself for three months, and now I would like to get into contact with real teachers. Your course seems perfect for my aims, notably because of the importance you give to conversation (even between beginners) and writing as ways of having a better understanding of the language's structure. Would you still have any places for the course starting the 1rst June? If yes, could you give me some instructions about the preparation tasks that are mentioned at the website? Thank you for your help, Regards, Clarissa

It is difficult to speaking and to tell others what i think and what i want. And also, it is very difficult for me to understand what the others are saying.

Yes, I would like to study in the United Kingdom. I think the UK is one of the best countries to study. On the other hand, the UK has become a place for many people all around the world come, meet and share their thoughts. I like that multicultural atmosphere. I like the rainy weather too. However, the cost of living is really higher that my country. I guess that is going to be a problem.

Dear Sir, If you want that we have great progress in writing, my suggestion is to specify a topic so we write about it, and then you will correct it. Clearly, this is a very hard and time consuming task for you.
