Fedor Solovyev, 15, a school student from St Petersburg in Russia, spent two weeks improving his English at Elizabeth Johnson Organisation, Bristol on a Let Your English Grow scholarship in 2008.
Because it's cool - and I won this prize. I've been learning English in my school for ten years, with my first words in the kindergarten.
Yes I enjoyed it! Most of all I liked teachers (how they taught me), my freedom and my friends from other countries. And your shops were little and very cosy and have a lot of things to buy.
My first surprise was when I came to the centre of Bristol and I saw 'the magic red booth' - where I can send free my photos and e-mails.
I like to play computer games like World of Warcraft and I have the Great Britain version so English helps me in the game. I am keeping on writing with my friends in Spain and teachers in Bristol. And, I forgot - English helps me in my school. I'm doing my homework task for English and my trip to Great Britain helps me."
I think it has because many people in the countries may understand me and I understand them- English is the world language.
Yeah, I recommended it to my best friend, and my mum recommended it to her friends' children.
