Hello fellow travellers .
I am wondering which is the best place to go to improve my english skills or have a little of work experience abroad Brasil . What are the chances of getting a work or study visa or both in the US ?

I was willing to go Dallas TX or some city of Texas shoreline , I like the idea of texas because it is full of mexican culture and i could learn two languages at once " spanish and english ". Please tell me any good tips . I would like to stay like 6 months at the most , i am 26 years old , single and have never travelled out of Brazil yet. Thanks for your attention.

I have been to Houston, San Antonio, Dallas and Austin in Texas, and liked Austin the best. The University of Texas is there, along with a lot of high tech companies, so there is a lot of young people and good nightlife there. It's far from the coast (3 - 4 hours), but a lot closer to the coast than Dallas is.

Not sure on the job situation in any of those places.

Thanks for the information
I found few english school in Corpus christ , it is a city at texas coastline . Small but It looks very good place .
i don´t know about job . I went to "six flags park" site and they have an international students program for them to work at there . Looks nice too , i am just still a bit undecided .

I need some comments about Texas, such as " How hard is to get a job there " , " how is the cost of life in it ´s cities " , " If there are any place with good temporary international students or worker programs ".

Changing the subject :
