I really like to go to school in the United States. It is really good chance to learn English, so you can speak fluently, without any problem. It's also good chance to get nice job, after you graduate because workers who speak English are good in international business.

Being in the United states, also a really great chance to meet other people and become friends with them. It is so easy to make friends in the U.S., because all Americans are very friendly.

Schools in the U.S. are really nice. You get to be in all kinds of sports activities, from fall till spring, all year long.

So, anybody who has a chance to go to the U.S., go ahead. You will have lots of fun, being here.
