Model Answer 1:
Learning the English language in a country where people speak English is a very advantageous option, although not the only way. Personally, I completely agree with this statement, because living in English spoken country has a lot of benefits in terms of mastering this language.

Learning English is easier in an English-speaking country because the people around you are speaking English and makes it easy to adjust to English accent and also sentence patterns. For instance, it is very hard to learn English accent without listening to English. Besides living in English speaking country will enrich your vocabulary and grammar and that enhancement will occur spontaneously. And you can ask anything about the language that you have doubts about. You are bound to speak in this language and that would give you an excellent opportunity to enhance your speaking skill.

On the other hand, it is not the only way to learn a language. There are a lot of books that you can utilise. English radio programmes or TV shows are best options to learn the language. So, it will help you increasing your listening skills. In addition, nowadays, the internet is widespread and also a superiority in our world. Thereby, the internet comprises all kind of information and it will help you about your doubts. It is evident that there are enough programmes for speaking with somebody in which it will improve your speaking skills.

I would agree that people who live in a country like Canada, USA, UK or Australia, where English is used as the primary way of communication, would help them master this language pretty quickly and accurately. But not always you need to live there to learn this language. It is not uncommon for people who have never been in an English speaking country to have an excellent command over this language. Some of the poets and writers who wrote successful English literature have been born and raised and lived in non-English- speaking countries.  

To sum up, learning English in an English spoken language will make it easy to study but there are a lot of ways that can be used for learning this language.

Model Answer 2:
The English language is an international language which dominates almost all relationships between countries. Therefore important people need to speak the English language fluently. In addition, simple people should know English. Firstly it is good to be able to speak another language as well as your mother tongue. And also when you visit an English-speaking country, you will need to know English. Learning English while living in a country like UK, USA, Australia, Canada etc. is a very good option but in my opinion, there are other effective ways to learn it as well.

I think studying the English language is now more different than studying other languages. In these days English is educated in most countries across the world. Furthermore, every person, who has the internet accessibility at their house, has a great alternative to acquiring knowledge of speaking English. The internet provides a great deal of opportunity to study English on the chair you sit. Moreover today the English lessons are taught on the internet as efficient as they are taught in the class.
But of course, the best and the most efficient way of studying the English language is still to live and spend most of your time in an English-speaking environment. By this way, you are induced to speak and study English with its actual speakers. If there is a chance to study English in an English-speaking country, it is the best scope that a person can ever have.

However, in my opinion, it is not the only opportunity to study English. Because there are good enough programs that are applied by well-educated teachers all around the world. All you need is the perseverance that induces to hardworking. Thereby you can study whatever you want wherever you are by trying hard.

Model Answer 3:
There is no doubt that large numbers of people are travelling English speaking countries to pursue their education. Some people argue that foreign countries have more modern and latest teaching methodologies and have trained and professional staff to educate students. Students also get an opportunity to interact with local people that will help them to improve their communication skills in English. Others claim that people can also learn English in their country effectively and efficiently by using online resources, exploring books, visiting libraries and taking help from teachers. I believe that foreign countries immensely help to achieve desired langue skills.

Nowadays, English has become an essentials constituent of the educational curriculum in non-English speaking countries, all institutions have adopted this change because of its undeniable benefits. Government and private sectors are making efforts to train their people in English by providing them various learning options that are easy and cheaply available within the country.

On the other hand, learning in foreign countries is more convenient. One of the reasons is that being pioneer, they are well aware of the art of delivering knowledge and other learning techniques. Furthermore, people will get the chance to meet and communicate with local people and explore their cultures, that will help them in understanding language more.

To sum up, I would like to say that studying and living in foreign country dramatically increased their knowledge and information about the language, which would be rather difficult and less effective in their native nation. However, accommodation, food and medical expenses could impede one’s dedications towards learning in English speaking country.

No doubt, individual can learn English in an English speaking nation more efficiently, but it is not only single way to improve English skills. In my opinion, there are several ways to be a good English speaker.

The most important consideration is that, people of every region makes efforts to improve their English skills. Moreover, they are in habit of working hard to reach their destination. In touch of this they perform various activities to gain knowledge about English.

In many countries English is the second language and the students of these countries read English as part of their daily lessons. Thus they gain the language skill and later on increase their proficiency in English through practices.

In the same vein, there are some well experienced teachers who give particular knowledge about English. Despite of this, it is totally dependent on our practice. As it is a well known proverb that 'practice makes a man perfect'. A country where people are habituated of speaking English get an environment regarding English. So, if we will create an English speaking environment only in our home then we will be good English communicator.

In many countries students in university level have to read text books in English and their habit of watching Hollywood movies, TV serials and other TV programs also help them to gain better skill in English. Many students find that knowing English would enhance their career and that is why they learn the language.

Thus a combination of effort and practice make many nonnative English speakers to be very fluent in English. Many News channels in countries where

I pen down by saying that English can be learnt everywhere in the world. It totally depends on hard work and passions of an individual. As per my perceptions people do not lose their hope by saying that English can only be learnt in an English speaking country.
