I would like to live in the U.K. because there are a lot of great skateparks, for example Ramp 1 in Warrington. I like to go with my stuntscooter riding there. Except I can Not speak English very well. I could learn ist there. I also like to meet different people from different countrys and made new friendships. I have heard the english people like fish and chips. I too. I could eat it there how often I will.

I would like to live in the U.K., because there are a lot of big skateparks for stuntscooter riding. For example the „Woodward Skatepark“. It will be very good for ne, because I speak German much better than English. It will be also good for me, because I can meet lots of different people from different countrys. It will very great for me to eat fish and chips three times a week. I have heard that ist happens a lot here.

Regarding living in UK I think the best part is that you are in the capital of football and also you have a lot of opportunities to study at prestigious universities. the saddest thing is the weather which is mostly dark and rainy

I like the Premier League is the best thing associated to the UK.
People are so nice and friendly as I have some British friends.
Bad things for me like the shops close early so the only option for you is to spend the night in a bar or a nightclub or at home and I personally like to spend nights out but not in closed places

Hi Paul and Michal from Poland here. We would like to live in the UK because of the nice countryside. We agree that the British accent is amazing. It's nice that there's no discrimination. The education is good. We think the UK is good for new friends and speaking English. The architecture could be better. There could be nicer buildings.

Well, many cities in the United Kingdom are known to be the centers of fashion, technology and commerce. On the other hand, despite the financial opportunities available, many immigrants still worry about the high cost of living in the United Kingdom.

I agree, that is an amazing country with nice customs and people. Weather is changing all the time but it is not so bad. Problem is that you have to wait for the visa, and that can be very annoying. Everything else is so nice...
