I've been to London and Oxford. I was enchanted when saw that splendid cities, the nature, people.. And the best part was when I could actually hear the real British accent. I like it so much and I think that American English can't compare with British accent, it's so sophisticated and I'd like to have such an accent. I've got a friend from England and her accent is wonderful, clear and it's a pleasantry to listen to her.

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..

Though,I've never been to UK............ I'm an 'Anglophile'! I'd really be honoured to be a student at the 'Cambridge University':-)

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!
