The advantages of studying English in England seem obvious. Firstly, you will be able to listen to the language all the time you are in the country. You will be surrounded completely by the language wherever you go. Another advantage is that you have to speak the language if you are with other people. In Italy, it is always possible, in the class, to speak Italian if you want to and the learning is slower.

 

What is one of the advantages of going to the UK to learn English?

 
 
 
 

33. Three-year-old Teddy Lasry was napping yesterday at his family’s apartment when he shot up in bed screaming. A 3-metre-long black-and-white snake was coiled around his left arm and had just bitten his pinky.

“The baby-sitter freaked out,” said Teddy’s father, David Lasry, who, along with his wife, Evelyn, was at work when the reptile showed up about 4 p.m.

The horrified nanny dialed the police and screamed for the building’s doorman. The doorman and two cable TV workers helped pry the snake off the boy’s arm and stow it in a garbage bag, Lasry said.

Police rushed Teddy to Mount Sinai Medical Center, where his parents said he spent two hours attached to a heart monitor as a precaution in case the snake was poisonous.
