      Nowadays, more and more foreign students are going to English-Speaking countries to learn the “international language – English”. It is undoubtedly true that studying English in an English-speaking country is the best way, but it is not the only way to learn it.
      Do you agree or disagree with the above statement?
      You should write at least 250 words.

      15.55 ( 304 words in 33 mins.)
      Overtime, English has almost become the language of the world. For many students learning English is a way to be globally acceptable in the job scenario as well as an important addition for an entrepreneur. Does it mean that going to an english speaking country the only way to learn it? It can very well be done in ones home country.
      Merely going to another country to learn a language is most certainly not essential. One can certainly find a variety of different language teaching courses in their own country. These courses are many times affiliated with another reputed english speaking course from a very professional Institute, therfore can impart good language skills. Apart from this there are many online courses which one can easily opt for, from the comfort of their home.
      Going to an English speaking country merely to learn the language is not really economical. One could easily spend about an year to get the required fluency. Unless one takes a specific course to learn the language it can be a daunting task, morever if one had to ultimately take a course it could very well be done back home. People cant learn a perfect language simply by staying in a foriegn country, all that they can get is the working knowledge of the language for their day today use. For example, many immigrants in an english speaking country fail to master the language in the true sense despite their long years of stay.
      In my opinion its needless to travel to a country where English is a native language purely with an intent of learning it. With an easy availability of professional courses as well as the availability of online courses the learning can well be accomplished in a much more economical way from the comfort of your home country.
