Yesterday, I just thought 'Live Earth' Concert.

Yes.. It's very amazing concert.

Lots of musician sing for a serious problem, 'Global Warming'.

Also, I am watching South Africa concert live streaming now.

Anyway, today is one of the sad historical day in the UK.

About two years ago, some of London transports were attracted by bomb.

It didn't pass 24 hours when London hold 2012 Olympic.

(Relative site : In Depth London Attacks [BBC NEWS])

After two years, most of people look like to forget this incident.

Okay... After two year, which newses are listed on BBC news web site?

We have enjoyed the 'Live Earth' Concert and thought 'Climate change' with lots of people. Good.

Also, BBC Gaza correspond, Alan Johnston, who was kidnapped by an armed group in Gaza, returned to his house. Good.

Wow.. After two years, our world finds the peace finally, doesn't it?

Hang on minute! What's the headline? 'Iraq market truck bomb kills 105'

Oh my dear... After two years, we see the massacre again?

Why am I in England.

OK... I want to discuss about this news article with you.
Please read this article before when you read this post.

English Is The Golden Tongue for S. Koreans
SEOUL -- Just a week into his summer vacation, 15-year-old Min-Kyu Kim
already has a tight schedule and ambitious goals: On this particular day, he
intends to memorize 600 words of English vocabulary, solve 10 pages of SSAT math
problems and take practice tests for English. He estimates the tests... more – by Joohee Cho

From (The Washington Post)

1, I met my Korean friend on an Instant Messenger.
Friend: "I do not understand why people study at oversea country"
Me: "Why?"
Friend: "Because I think if someone study more incentive, it's enough in my country"
I did not answer that because I agree with him.

2, Some months ago, my sister couple traveled some European countries and I traveled France and Italy with them.
The one thing that I surprised to them was they communicated better than me in there. Of course, they speak a bit of English and don't speak other languages.
My sister husband said "Simply the best"

3, I serious consider to attend Pre-sessional course from 23rd, July at Oxford Brookes University.
The problem is money. The course fee and housing fee are quiet expensive for me. (About... more than £2500 together)
If I got IELTS overall 6 (with Reading and Writing over 6), I do not need to attend that course. But...

How much have I spended money and time for learning English?
And, how much improve my English?
Why do I learn English in the UK where has lots of incidents?

The answer is Oh My GOD...

(P.S.) I want to share another news article form South Korea. This news article is about a man who has been rejected his UK student visa from embassy of United Kingdom in South Korea. This article is written by Korean and I show the article is translated to English by Google Translate tool.
From CBS NoCut News ( [Korean])

(P.S.2) Anyway What's your opinion about this news article?
Is it good for Korean or not? Please write your comment here.
