First of all thanks for a great forum. I'm wondering where the best place to continue (advanced) studies of English would be in America? West coast or East coast as a general rule?

You don't have to travel to America to learn to speak English like a native Speaker. One of the best schools to learn English one-on-one is Dalton Language Institute. You can learn English with a native English teacher from the USA online through video conference on Skype. Search for Dalton Language Institute and you'll see our amazing rates.
