from years ago ,i want to live with the host family in the uk to explore the hapits,the landscape,and the culture for this countray,also i will learn the speaking english language fastly without conuming alot of time in the training for awhile ,but i think now its too late to take this decition because i have alot of responsibilities and i cant leave my family to go any where ,
i will trying to learn in this way (online)specially i have the passion to learn more and more

i think it will be very exciting .because sure its new experience and it will be added value to the person life experience

That is a nice experience about abroad students. I from Mexico but I have never traveled to another country, I hope some day I'll do. It would be exciting!
Best regards.

is this true ? i mean written based on true experiences ? i just got an idea u can make a page for ur members to record themselves from their experiences and stories and other can watch and learn more and you the teacher correct the mistakes i think it is a great idea though ur sit is doing great on it`s own.... Best wishes :)

Hello StrangeGr,

That's a nice idea but on a free and open-access site like LearnEnglish we don't have the time to correct users' errors, I'm afraid. For that you need a local teacher to work with you.

I came to the UK about two and an half year ago. I spent a lot great times and my life in the UK is still going well but with hard working. Because if you would like to live here ,especially London, you have to cope with the competition. Every year most of people from other countries come to live in London. Some of them can handle it well but many of them choose to return their countries. Besides all these difficulties , living in London is a great experience :)

i choose to live with my fellow student in dormitory if i studied overseas, because i think it makes me more comfortable cause we have same age, maybe have same hobbies and can do many things together without any shy, but live with a host family not bad either cause we can have new families, and they can make our homesick gone, i think.......

Good evening,
I want to be more fluent in speaking English. I want partner(s) who will talk to me in English. I have Skype account. If you join me I will be very happy. If you are interested mail me at xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and I will give you my Skype id.
So is there anyone can help me?

Hello IamShah,

It's great that you want to practise your English. However, please remember that our House Rules ask users not to give or request any personal contact information such as email addresses, Skype names etc. This is because some of our users may be under 18 years of age and so we must be very careful with personal data.
