The chart provides information on British migration to five countries (namely Australia, Spain, New Zealand, USA and France) from 2004 to 2007.

Overall, it is clear from the chart that, of the five destinations, Australia received the highest British migrants, whereas New Zealand and USA welcomed the lowest British migration, for the whole 5-year period. Additionally, Spain and France had a moderate number of British migration, from 2004 to 2007.

Over the years, it has become popular for foreigners to learn the English language by studying in an English-speaking country such as England and Australia. While most people find this as the best method, I believe that there are other options of learning the language aside from going to schools. This essay will explain how interactions with the locals are better than studying in English-speaking countries for learning the English language.

Students from foreign backgrounds mostly choose to attend schools in English-speaking countries to learn or improve their english. Learning English in schools provides students the knowledge of theories and structures through books and lectures , and it also provides them with activities such as tests and assignments wherein they can practice their English knowledge and skills. A research conducted in Australia, highlighted that over 60 per cent of foreigners that opted to learn english in Australian schools gained a proficient level of English.

However, I disagree that studying English is the only way foreigners can learn the language. Engaging and communicating with the local English speakers can also be an option for mastering the English language. Although studying provides foreign students an organised learning, this does not prepare them for the interactions they will have in their everyday lives living in an English-speaking country. Therefore, it makes sense that foreigners learn from the locals. Communicating with locals gives students practical experience and also additional English lingo that is not taught in schools. Foreigners can learn English by opting to live with locals so that they can practice their English in an intimate manner or they can also participate in community events wherein they can absorb the language in a fun and interesting way.

In conclusion, gaining knowledge of the English language by studying in countries such as Australia and England is not the only efficient way to grasp the language. I believe that by participating in conversations with Locals on a daily basis or through special events can also foster learning for the language.
