The chart shows the choices of migration destinations for British people over the course of 4 years. We can see how Australia seems to be the choice number one for a British migrant. Although the USA is also an English-speaking country, there are a few people who emigrate to live there. Observing New Zealand and Spain, it is noticeable how they have been less chosen by migrants over the years, particularly speaking, in 2006, when at the same time Australia and USA were chosen more. France also had a huge jump, being chosen, in 2005. However, the chart shows that British people were more satisfied with their country in 2007 as the number of migrants decreased to all selected destinations, well, or maybe they just emigrate to another new not listed country. The fluctuation of migrants to a specific destination reflects how good is this destination, we can see that with Australia and France most of all.

Speaking a language is an obtained skill, not a birth skill, all people know that. So that they agree on the possibility of learning a new language. However, they disagree on how this skill should be studied. Some argue that you can not learn a language such as English for example while you are speaking your native one. Others are convinced that they know the right way to learn a language without leaving their countries.
People who have learned a language, staying at home, obviously are the ones who argue that this result is possible. They believe that technology has brought to us all what we could ever need to study a language. Methods like using youtube courses, listening to music, and watching series in the desired language are available for almost anyone. These people have tried these methods themselves.
On the other hand, there are those people who studied English at school for their whole life, graduating without the ability to speak it. They deeply believe that the problem was not because of their weak skills, nor because of the school educational system, but because of them living in a not-English-speaking country. People who are convinced of that are also mostly those who moved to another country and started to speak English, learning it there.
If we look at these opinions more attentively, we can see how each one judges a scientific issue out of his experience. In my opinion, and away from my experience, learning a language is possible, no matter where you are if you have the skill of knowing how to learn, the tools for doing that, and the real desire to continue the process until the end.
