Speaking

I don’t know if I have a chance to study abroad. I plan to study abroad after two years. I’m confident about my English. I checked the application from the internet, I need to pass 6.5 IELTS. I think it’s a little hard for me to get this grade. I don’t know if I spend two years to study English hard. The first problem is language, the second problem is about money. If you want to study abroad, you need to prepare a large sum of money, especially for the major of MBA. MBA you need a lot of money, you need to be a manager level for many years, so it’s hard. I will not consider MBA. I want to study accounting, continue my major.
