Have you ever considered spending a year in Britain to improve your English? As an au pair maybe, or in some other way? And did you? Why not? Or if you did, what was it like? Would you recommend it? and what would be your 'tip of the day' for a successful experience. :?:

I used to teach a lot of au pairs from central Europe when I was working in a college in the UK, and they certainly learned a lot during their stay- most were studying for upper-intermediate or advanced exams to take back as qualifications.

You'll find extremely different versions of English spoken in London, Liverpool and Leeds. ;-)

Hi,

I am thinking to do a languistic trip in England, but I don't how to proceed.

Are there some families who welcome people from all over the world just during their staying? and how much money does it cost for staying a month for example?

Regards.

I just want to correct something, instead of writing "a stay abroad" I wrote "a languistic trip" i think what I wrote it's wrong.

Should be 'linguistic'

I haven't been to Uk, and I didn't think about it, not because I don't want to but maybe I'm not interested yet. Any way I've met lots of people whu had been to there but unfortunately I didn't see that they have achieved something and I have no idea why!!!
