Yes, I would like to. Studying in the UK is a big chance to learn new cultures from new people. I would like to go some beautiful places and eat their local food. I would like to experience their cold weather as well.

Hi! Can study in UK? It must be a very wonderful experience. I can meet a lot of foreign friend. Also I'll learn in a really different place to my native country. Despite living in UK, can benefit many things, you have to have a nice profile and a emotional writing skills. Having a nice profile seems easy but you'all don't. It's a real challenge! if the truth be told you also must have a high meaning brain to write lots of essay, composition for UK school. However, if you're smart enough and own a immense wealth. I'm sure you can go to United Kingdom and study the way easy, though! I still believe we should training hard. 'Cause it'll bring you a major amount of experience. Like you'll study how hard can things be, how you achive and pass a rocky road in your life,... You'll have a further sight which really teaches you somethings. On the path to the winning, don't frightened of the ones who use one thousand methods, you should scared of people who use a methods one thousand times!
