Why Learn English in the UK
Every year, more than 600,000 students hit Britain’s shores to learn English. However, there are English language schools all over the world, even in the students’ own countries, so why come to Britain? Here’s our list of reasons why we think English schools in London and the rest of the UK should be your only choice.
The Home of English
The English language was born in England, so where better to learn it? Learning English in its native home is great because you’ll be learning the whole time. It doesn’t matter whether you attend a day course every day of the week or evening courses arranged around a part-time job, you’ll be learning outside of the language school as well as in the classroom. Unless, of course, you seek out others from your own country and remain exclusively with them, every experience you have will be conducted in English. This kind of ‘forced’ practice is one of the best ways to help you improve and get over your lack of confidence and nerves.
Internationally Recognised and Respected Qualifications
The UK has some of the world’s best and most prestigious universities. As such, the UK has gained a global reputation for academic excellence and saying that you have studied here is a credit to any CV. Many of the 600,000 students coming to the UK are also looking to attend university here, and we also offer university foundation courses to help you get the preparation you need in academic English.
We also offer IELTS courses, as preparation for another internationally recognised qualification.
Culture and History
For such a small country, the UK has a lot to offer in terms of culture and history. London itself is full of wonderful museums, parks, monuments, and entertainment, and has excellent transport links to give access to the rest of the country. Stratford-upon-Avon, the home of Shakespeare, isn’t too far away, and Cornwall, the Lake District and Scotland boast breathtakingly beautiful scenery.
Opportunities for Development and Progression
Learning English is just the start of an exciting journey which can lead you anywhere. English is the language of international business and globalisation, and improving your English language skills can really open doors for you in your career. However, learning in the UK, and in particular London, offers even more opportunities. London has been at the centre of much of this year’s high profile events and has been the place everyone wanted to be.
Make New Friends
You could argue that you might be able to make friends wherever you learnt English, but with so many international students flocking to the UK, you’ll have the opportunity to meet new people from all over the world. The capital is a melting pot of different cultures and meeting these people will give you the opportunity to share and learn from each other, as well as finding people to share your new experiences with.
