Of course, who wouldn't. For the sake of sharing best practice and solution, I have always wanted to enter The Core Training of Internal Medicine in NHS , however, sadly, this will not happen anytime soon because of the pandemic. I would like to savour each and every popular destinations starting from the 400-feet high London Eye to Lake District. Spending an evening cruising the famous Thames river, gazing at the Big Bang and Tower Bridge whilst the european wind is dishelving your hair, will be truly nostalgic. Moreover, the fact that the century-old architecture as well as lavender fields of the England Isle will provide fascinating instagram photos is crystal clear. Last but not least, one should set sail for The Oxford University which is one of the world's ivy league universities before setting your foot off the United Kingdom.

Yes. I would like to study in UK because I want to learn English there. In recent years, American English has been regarded as the mainstream, and it has been taught in Japanese school education, and many people mistakenly think that English was born in the United States. However, English was originally born in England. I think that learning English in the country in which it was born can help you learn more about the origin of the language, and thus improve your understanding of English. In addition to that, I like soccer very much. My favorite team is Liverpool FC, watching a Liverpool FC match locally is one of my childhood dreams. Additionally, it is said that the Premier League is currently the highest league in the world, and soccer fans around the world want to watch the game at least once. Because of these things, I would like to study in the UK.

Yes. I want to study in the UK. Because the intonation of English is very beautiful in the UK. I learned American English intonation in middle and high school. But I've always been fascinated by British intonation and wanted to learn it too. I've been to New Zealand. New Zealand is a British-speaking country, so we have the same pronunciation. I was in high school at the time, and I was feeling a little uncomfortable with the pronunciation. It wasn't very strange, but it was not a word I had heard before and it took me a while to understand it. After I got used to it, I realized that British English is a beautiful language, and I started to be attracted to it. I won't have the chance to go to New Zealand again, but my current university program includes a short-term study abroad program where students study abroad for three months at a pre-determined location. One of them was to study abroad in Ireland. I decided to study abroad in Ireland because I thought it would be a great opportunity for me. I heard that Ireland is a very historic city and is known as a very friendly city in the UK. However, I heard that they have an accent. It might not be a good lesson in intonation, but beautiful pronunciation is not the only way to learn English. So I feel that this study abroad program in Ireland is a good opportunity to get to know the local English pronunciation.

I'm really looking forward to study in the UK, especially at University of Surrey. I've been practicing my English to take IELTS Tests and some scholarship test. Please wish me luck.

Yes having my opportunity to study in the UK, is my biggest dream. I had it since I finished high school, but I couldn't afford to move to London to do my Bachelor's. Now that i finished my master, i hope to save some money by doing a second job, in order to go in London for my Ph.D. The UK is providing one of the best education in world, and excellent labor for qualified people. I hope it to doesn't stay only a dream. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Simona I have seen your website and I would like to know more about your English courses. I'm interested to attend an English course for two months during the summer, in July and August. Do you offer courses during these months and do you have an available places for two people? What are the starts dates? Could you tell me about the price per month, and do you offer any discount if we come as group from 5 people. Also I'm interested in accommodation? I heard that you provide also accommodation at a reasonable price. Could you send me more information about it relate to price and what is included in the price? I would like to book in advance, but im looking to have it with two meals. Dear Rona Thank you for being interested in our summer school. Yes we have free place for those months. The start dates are from 1s and 15th August, you can choose which suits you. The regulat price is 100 per month, but if will come as group from 5 people i will make you a discount in total price for 20%, that mean you have to pay just 160 per two month.

I don't think studying in the UK is the option for me but I badly want to visit that country with all your history, architecture, literature and of course Premier League. I'm a huge fan of this stuff and a trip to England is my dream.

It would be my pleasure to study in UK not only that but also it is a chance for me to practice English with fluent people. Also I can identify one of the greatest culture in the world.
