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?

Why do I learn English in the UK where has lots of incidents?

The answer is Oh My GOD...
