Hi, i am sanjeev from India. i have been visited many times in uk for my business purpose. i felt very excited to meet some new people,new places and also new culture there. i went many places in uk like Bourne Mouth,Birmingham,London,Brighton.there is no pollution in uk.if you want to learn good English there. first of all you have to speak and speak only if you are speaking wrongly,don't bother about it.because after some times you will feel,you are speaking with correction and time to time your English fluency will be much much better and end of the day you will really feel. now you are a perfect speaker for English Language.its my personal openion for learning a new language.

Hello everyone, I have never studied abroad before and it is good experiment to learn English. I come here for 10 weeks. My 6 weeks left and I think, I have progress in English, because I live in a host family and studying with the students from another country. So, living in a host family it is better to live in the resident. With the host family I can talk,ask all things in English. But sometimes host families are not talkative. My first family were nice, but they don`t talk a lot and house wasn`t clear. Now i am living in my third host family and they very good people and they love purity.
I am studying in Cavendish school of English in Bournemouth. It is very good school with very good teachers. My main problem in English is grammar. It is hard to understand ,but teachers are always helping me and now it is my turn to continue my studies.

Hello, my name is Gaia, i will talk about my experience in England. I think that Bournemouth is a very interesting place, has a lot of green parks. This is my first year in Bournemouth, but last year i went to Brighton. I stayed there for three weeks, this year i will stay here for one month.
I love my host family, they are very friendly and both cook very well! I think that stay in a host family is better than stay with your friends of your same country,because it is the best way to improve your English faster. I love the school because we do a lot of projects together, it`s very funny. Every day during the morning we go to visit different places and from 13:30 to 17:35 we go to lessons. In Italy lessons are quite good but it`s not enough to talk well the language. i Love my leaders too, because they are very friendly and if you need help they are ready to help you. At the start you will have to do a test to know your level, and than they will choose a class good for your level. I hope i will came back to Bournemouth next year. .

Hello, everyone. I have not studied abroad yet, but I really want to go to other countries for study. If I have a chance to study abroad, I would like to live with fellow students in a dormitory. Because we are of similar age, we can have many common interest to talk, and I also can learn many things about the culture of their country.
You can make friends with foreigners and your countrymen. They can help you overcome these negative feelings.

I have never studied abroad but I wish I could.
I would choose to live with a host family because i can learn more from them about the culture of the country and by them i involved with his lives .
people when they travel for the the first time may have difficulties but i'm sure if they truly want to success they will concentrate about the pros (advantages) only.
