    Living in other country..

    Hello everyone!
    Many people say that if you want to speak English fluently,the best way is live in a place which all speak English.

    I want to ask if I go to Australia just several months.
    Does it will have effect on my English speaking?
    Or how long do you think is better? Thanks:)

    You should learn a lot in that time, as long as you use the time to practise and expose yourself to a lot of language.

    I've been living in Ireland for two years. That was fantastic time for pratice, actually, irish accent is quite complicated but I was speaking every day in eglish, great practice. The best way to learn english, live with it!

    One year is a proper period, as I heard from many of my friends.

    It should, but that depends on you. There are people who live for many years in a country and don't make much progress with the language. If you immerse yourself in the life around you and use the opportunity to improve your language, a year or two can make a huge difference.
