yes, i would like to study in the UK and i woul like to speak english language perfectly. I want to improve my english but for me it is very difficult. It is difficult to speaking and to tell others what i think and what i want. And also, it is very difficult for me to understand what the others are saying.

To study English in the UK is my big dream! I would like so much taking a three-month English course. I need to improve my English skills, and it is more difficult to do this when you live in a country where people are non-native English. One day I will realize my dream!

Yes, I would like to study in the United Kingdom. I think the UK is one of the best countries to study. On the other hand, the UK has become a place for many people all around the world come, meet and share their thoughts. I like that multicultural atmosphere. I like the rainy weather too. However, the cost of living is really higher that my country. I guess that is going to be a problem.

Dear Sir, If you want that we have great progress in writing, my suggestion is to specify a topic so we write about it, and then you will correct it. Clearly, this is a very hard and time consuming task for you.
