I want to say thank you to all the teachers of Canterbury College in Kent . I have never had any special talent for the language, but my ancestors are sure that without them there is nowhere. Have sent.

And it turned out! At the end of the course (they chose the A-Level course), he spoke with the English guys quite freely. Now I'm going to enter the university. They also teach interesting things, and not the way they do in our school. In a word, I liked it, only the orders are very strict. And so - you can live. Even tried to read in the original "Three in a boat," although the movie still liked it more.
