    3. Any questions you have.
  3. I look forward to hearing from you is a good way to close an email if you want a reply.

I would like to go to English speaking countries to study English. There may be US, UK, Australia, Canada, Singapore, or India. English in each different country is a bit different about grammar, accent, pronunciation, and vocabulary. I really like American English so I hope I will have a trip to the US to practice my English.

As an English language learner, I would like to go to the UK. Honestly, it's my dream. I've been to many countries in Europe, like Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland, Austria, Hungary or France (Paris is incredibly beautiful, by the way) already. But England is something special I think. And it's not only because of my target language, you know, but it's also history, culture, literature and even sports (I'm a huge Arsenal fan) that engage me. I hope one day I could visit this country (for a month minimum) and make my dream come true.

I would like to go to study Korean in Korea. I have three reasons. First, I like K-POP music and Korean drama, so I want to understand Korean and I would like to go to see my favorite person in Korea such as go to music live or movie preview. Second, I want to work in Korea for future. I think Korean cosmetics and clothes are the best things in the world. I would like to learn something about that and I open my own brand. It is so big dream but I want to do. For that purpose, first, I have to get Korean language. Finally, I want a connection between Japan and Korea. Now, our relationship is getting worse, so I would like to do something a little to our relationship. If our relationship is getting better, I can work in Korea easily for future. Not just me, almost people who are Japanese and Korean will be easier to spend life. To sum up. I want to go to Korea to study Korean.

I want to go to England or Iceland to learn English. In fact, I plan to go to Malaysia to study next year, but if I can choose a place to study without considering the financial aspects, I thought that the home country of English would be good. I chose England because I wanted to learn English at home, but I think security is important as a condition for choosing a place to study. Iceland is famous for its good security among European countries. Not only is it safe to live in Iceland, but it is full of nature, so I wanted to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city I usually live in and live in. In Iceland, I would like to do a homestay, have my family teach me the good points of Iceland, and go with me to tourist spots. I love hot springs, so one of the reasons why I chose Iceland is famous for hot springs. Surrounded by nature, I wanted to learn English.

Dear I am a little worried about studying abroad, and I find it difficult to prepare. However, studying abroad is a great experience for me. Therefore, I would like to study abroad in Australia. There are two main reasons. The first reason is my parents' recommendation. My parents have been to Australia and I was able to know what kind of place it is. I also heard from them that the security was very good and the locals were very kind. The second reason is that there is little time difference. If the time difference was too large, I thought it would be difficult to go abroad for the first time. Of course, I think the southern and northern hemispheres have different seasons, but I think that is the same regardless of which country you go to. Based on the above, I am thinking of studying abroad in Australia and would like to study English there. So I have some questions. Is there anything in Australia that needs special attention? Are there any behaviors that are commonplace in Japan but rude in Australia? I would appreciate if you could answer the question. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

I would like to go to study English in Ireland because the curriculum of the department of my university includes short-term study abroad, I chose Ireland because one of the destinations is study abroad. In addition to this, I would like to learn not only English but also culture there that is why Ireland has its own developed culture, which is called Celtic culture, which has different characteristics from other European cultures and has various influences on other European cultures. This is a very interesting thing for me who originally liked European culture, so I would like to see for myself. Not only that, but in many cases Ireland's castles and churches are often preserved in their original shape, which makes me think that it is an environment where it is very easy to come into contact with those culture. I wonder if going to study abroad just to study English is a waste of money and time. I choose Ireland because I want to enrich my life by studying culture and studying abroad instead of just studying language because it is a huge expense and time consuming process.

I would like to go to study English in US. There are many advantage to studying English in the US. For example, it is that many choices for universities and language schools. Not only for those who want to learn English intensively in a short period of time, but also for those who want to study different subjects such as music and art using English, and those who want to further improve their specialization in a special course. It seems to correspond. It is also attractive to have international students from all over the world helped by such many options. There are many schools with excellent counseling and support services, and it can be said that the country is like an expert in accommodating foreign students. However, as a disadvantage, studying in the US can still be said to be high in terms of ease of studying abroad. Therefore, I think it would be a pity to have to prepare a reasonable cost. However, since the US id s very famous country for studying abroad, I would like to go to study English in the US if I can afford it. Well next year I am going to study abroad in Australia. Ha ha.

I would like to study English in New Zealand. I will go to study abroad to New Zealand. I decided to go to New Zealand, not other country. One of the reasons why I decided New Zealand is that cost is cheaper than many other countries, but it is not all. The main reason is my sister and my father recommended and I have been to New Zealand one time. My sister had been to New Zealand to study abroad one year. She says there are nice place and there is peaceful place. I thought there is nice place when I have gone to New Zealand so I would like to study English in New Zealand. I would like to study English in California too. Because my father had been to California to study abroad when he was young. He says it is really nice experience, there are very nice place. Furthermore, I would like to study Chinese in China. I am studying Chinese in university. Surprisingly Chinese is close my life. I often see Chinese many places. I feel fun when I can read Chinese and I think study Chinese more, it will fun.

  I think studying abroad is very tough. However, it’s also very precious experience for us. So, if I could study abroad anywhere I want to go, I would like to go to Republic of Malta. Malta seems to be getting more and more popular as the place to study abroad these days. Malta is a small island nation in the Mediterranean Sea. I have heard about Malta on TV and radio. Since then, I have been yearning for Malta. I have 2 reasons why I would like to go to Malta. First, because Malta is a historic nation. Valletta, the capital of Malta is surrounded by a wall which was built in the 16th century to prevent some attacks from neighboring countries. And the city is registered as UNESCO World Heritage. Even now, medieval cityscape has been being maintained. I love historic cityscape. So, it would be wonderful experience if I can study while touching it. Second, because the environment of Malta is excellent in various aspects. For example, although international students around the world gather in Malta, there are not many Japanese international students in Malta. So, I can meet people from different countries and focus on improving my English skills. And climate of Malta is excellent. Malta has a mild Mediterranean climate and very hot in the summer. But the humidity is low and comfortable. When the weather is nice, I can be positive about anything. Due to these reasons, I would like to try learning English in Malta if I can go anywhere. Studying abroad is very valuable. So, if I can get a chance to study abroad, I’ll do my best!
