Studying abroad is a dream for me. But studying in the UK is too expensive for me. If I really have the opportunity to study oversea, I think I have to choose a location where the cost of living is cheaper!

Yes, I do. I'd like to study English in the UK because of their accent. Also, studying in a English-speaking country is an opportunity to practice efficiently. Finally, the UK is amazing place that everyone will enjoy visiting, I think.

I would like to study in the uk if I have a chance to do, especially in Oxford and cambridge. What I meant by this is all the books I have read to learn english since I was young are coming from these two countries which are very famous in non-english speaking country. I am familiar with these countries, so I would like to come and learn there because they are like educational cities which teach english learners an english thankfully and benevolently.

Of course, who wouldn't. For the sake of sharing best practice and solution, I have always wanted to enter The Core Training of Internal Medicine in NHS , however, sadly, this will not happen anytime soon because of the pandemic. I would like to savour each and every popular destinations starting from the 400-feet high London Eye to Lake District. Spending an evening cruising the famous Thames river, gazing at the Big Bang and Tower Bridge whilst the european wind is dishelving your hair, will be truly nostalgic. Moreover, the fact that the century-old architecture as well as lavender fields of the England Isle will provide fascinating instagram photos is crystal clear. Last but not least, one should set sail for The Oxford University which is one of the world's ivy league universities before setting your foot off the United Kingdom.

Yes. I would like to study in UK because I want to learn English there. In recent years, American English has been regarded as the mainstream, and it has been taught in Japanese school education, and many people mistakenly think that English was born in the United States. However, English was originally born in England. I think that learning English in the country in which it was born can help you learn more about the origin of the language, and thus improve your understanding of English. In addition to that, I like soccer very much. My favorite team is Liverpool FC, watching a Liverpool FC match locally is one of my childhood dreams. Additionally, it is said that the Premier League is currently the highest league in the world, and soccer fans around the world want to watch the game at least once. Because of these things, I would like to study in the UK.

Yes. I want to study in the UK. Because the intonation of English is very beautiful in the UK. I learned American English intonation in middle and high school. But I've always been fascinated by British intonation and wanted to learn it too. I've been to New Zealand. New Zealand is a British-speaking country, so we have the same pronunciation. I was in high school at the time, and I was feeling a little uncomfortable with the pronunciation. It wasn't very strange, but it was not a word I had heard before and it took me a while to understand it. After I got used to it, I realized that British English is a beautiful language, and I started to be attracted to it. I won't have the chance to go to New Zealand again, but my current university program includes a short-term study abroad program where students study abroad for three months at a pre-determined location. One of them was to study abroad in Ireland. I decided to study abroad in Ireland because I thought it would be a great opportunity for me. I heard that Ireland is a very historic city and is known as a very friendly city in the UK. However, I heard that they have an accent. It might not be a good lesson in intonation, but beautiful pronunciation is not the only way to learn English. So I feel that this study abroad program in Ireland is a good opportunity to get to know the local English pronunciation.
