At the moment, I'm too young for leaving home. Then, I must have the permission of my parents when I'm older and I have to find a house to live in. But I think that I'm welcomed here in my parents house as long as possible. Or maybe...

well, a day or another, we have to leave home, as comfortable as it is. of course we'll feel nostalgic and homesick, but these pain will be exchanged by our success. and of course, the only happiness we can feel is seeing our parents proud of us, not fed up with a jobless adult who's acting like a teenager living in their house... eveything has its pros and cons, life is ups and downs :)

I never have to looking forward to leaving home, because in a temper, my mother said that she would let me go out of the house at once if I didn't obey her ! In a day, she feels annoyed some times and in those cases, I always visit my neighbor's house and even have lunch there. Okay, " moving house" seems great to me. ( A small secret : The cuisine is so tasty ?!")

I would like to go as soon as possible for studying, but I think my parents are going to have hard time adapting to changes. I'll take it even worse probably, but I wouldn't miss a good chance when it comes to education.

In my opinion, really,I would like to leave the house as soon as possible,because parents always shout and yelling at us.But second thought,i will not want to be older,because I want to stay with my parents. I will leave because of studying,but not leaving permanently.

I have many dreams, and one of them is being a student in University of Oxford. I'm Indonesian, I thought that it's difficult for me. Beause Indonesia just learning English language as additional subject not as a second language like our neighbour Malaysia.
I wish someday I'll be able to being a student over there. And by this website, i'll learn more of english language. Wish me luck^^

Well, yes. I really think that this is the best way to find the succes in you future career. Why? It is easy. These universities, especially the ones from Great Britain have the best teachers, the best programme of studying and the best offers. If I compare my country with GB, I'll definitely go on with the second one. There are a lot more opportunities for me and I have always looked for the best in my education and my life.

Sometimes, I want to leave my home and live on my own. I imagined about my freedom life that I can eat anything I like, do anything I want to do and not have to wake up so early.

I've planning to go on Oxford College. I want to finish my studies where it has a lot of good choices. I think that on Oxford it has a good teaching. My parents agree with that, so after I grow to those years I would go.
