Yes, I would to study in the UK. In my opinion it's a wonderful opportunity for studying. Firstly, you have a time to concentrate on English in classroom. Secondly, after lessons you have time to practice new knowledge in the native environment. Thirdly, you can meet interesting people with common interests.
