I think there are advantages and disadvantages learning in the country where it is spoken.
In my case, I’m studying English in Canada, and I’m very satisfied with my decision.
First, I’m going to tell you about advantages. One advantage is that we can be taught grammar and pronunciation by a native speaker. In fact, I was able to catch myself many times. Another advantage is that we can make a lot of friends from other countries. I made many Brazilian friends. I’m so happy to have met them because they persuaded me to go to Brazil. On the other hand, there are also disadvantages. For me, the biggest disadvantage was concerned money. I had to save money for over 1 year to come to Vancouver. Even though there are disadvantages in terms of learning English in an English country, I recommend going to Vancouver, because there is a terrific school called “Inlingua” there!!
