I've never been in UK but my dream is to study in Cambridge. We have a Welsh teacher in our school, and he told us a lot about the UK. We learned a lot about UK in our world geography classes, and I know quite lot about it. I really want to visit London, and I hope I will..

I have been to England. It was five years ago, and this year I won a contest for knowing English. The grand prize was a trip to England for two weeks, you only had to buy plane tickets. But they are really expensive... I couldn't go this year. I'd LOVE to study in England. My dream is to study at Oxford University... I hope that someday my dream will come true, because I'd like to live and study in England! :)

Hi Bosnianchild, You can do it! The first step is to improve all your English skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) and maybe you could go to a British university in the future! There are many students from all over the world studying in the UK! Hope this website helps you!
