Last week, this city was so busy because Flooding.
However, my residence is located the high area in Oxford so I do not have any damage about Flooding. (Sorry! It's not you wanted)
Just... the train does not go to London directly. (Take the replacement bus from Oxford station and you can take the train at Didcot Parkway station to Reading or London // Detail info http://www.firstgreatwestern.co.uk/)
However, the weather is getting better now.

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

Hang on minute! What's the headline? 'Iraq market truck bomb kills 105'
Oh my dear... After two years, we see the massacre again?

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

1, I met my Korean friend on an Instant Messenger.
Friend: "I do not understand why people study at oversea country"
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...
