Hi! I am MBAIRANE from Chad. I love ever learning english as foreign language. I got my high school diploma in 2014 and the same year I was admitted at university of N'Djamena. But I unfortunately dropped out my major program which is Letters and English Studies. In my country, all good study domains are only at the University of N'Djamena. So if any student has problems with a tutor perhaps, he or she will move to neighbour country to achieve his or her further studies. Despite its beauty and its characteristics as national capital of Chad. Moreover, whether you are graduated or having not any professional training you will get life hard.

Good evening! I am MBAIRANE from N'Djamena. I have been living in this city since 2014. It's a larger city with so much more people. And it's unique beautiful city that you can see good buildings. But N'Djamena is better to those who are graduated and managed any business. And then in rainy season there's nothing good I mean no good way to pass because of lack of infrastructures. Anyway, I love it because it's my home place better than anywhere.

I am MBAIRANE from the national capital of Chad. I have found him so fast but I can't blame him because speaking fast is already included his second manner. I hope I can do exactly as well as he does now. Thank you.

Hi, my name is Mauricio, I'm from Colombia and living in Cali city. Living in Cali has a lot of advantages but disadvantages, too. The main and most important feature regarding Cali is the enormous diversity and different environments such as parks amid the city for taking lunch or if you want to go out and feeling the breeze on your face, you can do it because there're are different choices, for instance, Pance or 'El Kilometro 18'.

Hi.I live in a city.I have been living here since i was born.
The thing i like about my city is that there are a lot of old palaces to see.There is a long river at the center of my city surrounded by trees and parks, and that is why it is one of the most beautiful cities.
The thing that really annoys me is the way our people behave.
they disobey rules.Their driving habits are awful.
Although,they are kind,they are so curious about what you do,what you wear,how you look, and etc.
Despite all these, I love it.

I live in a big city. I love it speed and a lot of different events being arranging every day wherever you go. But sometimes I'm really tired from its constant tension on traffic and crowded public transport. So many peole on every place don't afford just to relax. For some times I'd like to live in a more quiet and small town but I still love place where I live though it has disadvantages.

Yes, I lived in Europe, I am from Mexico City.
Bilbao is a great city. But it is a small city. It´s like a little village. So, sometimes it was boring.
For the morning, I went to school, in the afternoon back to my home, but in night don't have many things to do.
Mex City is a big city, actually is the bigger city in the Latin American. It's good. Here you have to many things for to do. But, the city is very very dangerous.

I live in a downside. It is quite near of Frankfurt. There is many advantages. For example, when you want to visit city center, you are very closed. And also if you want a bit quitenes, you have of course. Both you can arrive what you are needing easily, and you can live slightly quite and calm life. In addition this, you may attend different events in downside and city. Besides you can reach your basic goals and objectives in the city. For example you have a kide,

I live in the city. The best thing about where I live is that the area is lively, commercialized and infrastructured with sophisticated facilities, while the bad side about it just like London, there's constant rush hour mostly in the morning, afternoon and evening, as well as fullness of buses which sometimes keep someone waiting.

To live in a central city or village, it seems related to ages. Older people love quietness and they like to live in a village where young people may feel boring to live in. Anyway, I yearn for rural life.
