I think english is easy to speak,and becouse that is most widely in word but also becouse big tradition of UK...Advantages of learning english in some english country have a lot:
1.Faster learning english on most easily way like native learner
2.You learn evry second becouse you are surrounded with english speaker and differente type of accent
3.You will hear some words who are not in dictionary slang 
 
I would like to learn english in UK,precisly in London,becouse i love your accent...
And one qustions for learning english team...Are the LBC 97.3 radio from London good  for larning english before go to sleep...

Hello Armand,
I'm afraid I don't know this station very well, but I just listened to it for a few minutes to see what it was like. If you can understand it, I think listening to any speech radio will be very helpful for your English. However, after you get comfortable with one channel or presenter, it might be a good idea to try listening to something else, to get used to a different style of speaking, different accents etc.

HI,
JeremyBee I need you're help , In my home country I given muck test after end of my IELTS preparation course. I got 13 marks out of 40 in listening and and 14 out of 40 in reading . So my question is "what 'll be the brand score out of 9?
Hope will get replies  from you soon.

Hello sinti!

That's an impossible question to answer without seeing the test! IELTS practice tests aren't all the same difficulty, so I recommend either asking your teacher or looking at the course book; they will usually give you an idea of the band.

Sorry I can't be more helpful!

I think English is the most important language for business and travel abroad because in an international language of communication. It happened because United States since the latest years of 19th. century became in  the most important country in  business, commerce, politics and industry.
To study English in an  English speaking country is very important because all time you need to speak in this language because is it the only way to communicate with people. I would like to study English in  London because is a beautiful city  and british accent is perfect because is the original.
