The chart depicts the changes of british emigration population to certain five countries, which are Austrailia, Spain, New Zealand, USA, and, France. Austrailia has been the all time number one destination among five countries in the chart.

Spain came next as the emigration destination over four years. From 2004 to 2006, the number of british emigration to Spain hovered around early 30K, but it dropped to 25K in 2007.

I agree with the statment that it is the best to study Engilsh in an English-speaking country but alternative ways can exist to learn.

It is because what important to learn English is to create an English-speaking environment. As long as a student can be exposed enough to English-speaking environment, the physical location of a student doesn't matter as much as some people think. There are lots of living proofs that support the notion.

One of the examplary figures is Kang Kyung-hwa, the former minister of Foreign Affairs of Korea. She was applauded with her flawless and elegant English speeches and interviews that address the extremely subtle diplomatic nuances in English. Considering that foreign affairs is where a selection of a vocabulary can affect the relations with others immensely, it is very difficult to choose the right language in English while being asked important questions on sensitive diplomatic issues as a non-native English speaker. However, she has established a perfect example of a minister of Foreign affairs in a non-English-speaking country with her eloquent use of English. To the surprise of most people who have listened to or watched her English conversations, she had studied and improvd English in Korea first before she started her career as the staff in the UN. Once during an interview, she was asked about the secret of her English study, and answered that she created a daily routine of exposing herself to English and followed it. She made sure that all inputs that came from the outside of her to be in English and practiced to react to those inputs in English too.

The other example is Aran, one of the famous YouTubers who teaches English as a non-native speaker on YouTube. She was born and grown up in Korea, and spent most of her life in Korea. However, she has the English fluency that usual English speakers would think her as a native speaker. In one of her YouTube clips, she mentioned that she used to watch the same English series ten times until the moment she memorized the entire dialogue of episodes. She often highlights that it is more important to be immersed in an environment that you can listen to and speak English more than certain hours a day than go to English-speaking countries such as Canada, UK, or New Zealand.

Other than the two examples that I depicted, there are many more people who haven't even been abroad but can manage to speak Engilsh fluently. Due to the fact, I strongly believe that going abroad to an English-sepaking country isn't the only way to become a better Engilsh speaker.
