I really would like to study abroad. I think there are so many advantages in it. Firstly, I could improve my English skills, because I think I would speak there only in English. Secondly, it`s perfect opportunity to meet new people and make friends. And finally, I could see a lot of new places, find out much new information about this country, city, culture, cuisine, history and so on. So I really hope, that I`ll have an opportunity to study abroad, at least for a while

As I am graduating in a few years, I would like to study abroad, because I have been in the same school in Korea since first grade. Due to family relations, I will most likely be studying in France, however, I would prefer going to Canada, despite never visiting the country.

Dear Mr.Black, I read this morning newspaper and saw the advertisement, so I write this letter in order to ask you to give me more information about the "World Teens Today". So, how many lessons will I learn in a week? How much is a course cost? Do we need to test before we learn. I would like to hear from you, John

I really want to go language study abroad. My mother and father both was studying classical music and operas in Italy, and they are still famous for classical musician and opera singer. I want to be a musical star, too, but I want to study in US and debut in there. I don't care any foreing languages, but, for the future, I think I have to prepare it and use it in usual conversation. So I think it is the most important thing which learn foreing languages when I am young. I am 13 years old now, and I want to go study in USA or Singapore for English. Personally, I can't understand the British English pronounce well. So I want to go foreign country for study. For foreign language, I'll introduce why I want to go USA. Firstly, I can use the right pharases on grammer in usual conversation with the other people, and I can learn how to pronounce some complex words. And secondly, I can learn the cultures of that country, like the Halloween and the Independense Day. And also, I can spend other country's own holidays with there native traditions. Finally, I can test my English speaking and vocabulary by staying with my host families. Also, I can travel all around the country with my family and friends on my vacation. At last, My dream is become a world-famous musical stars who is not defeated by the K-POP stars and the other senior actors. So, I am going to study and practice singing, dancing and English, from now on. I will, I MUST be a famous world star, who can speak English very well as a native speakers.
