The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, otherwise known as the UK or Britain, is the birthplace of Shakespeare, The Beatles and David Beckham. With its long and fascinating history it homes the sites of Neolithic Stonehenge, Bath’s Roman Spa and the centuries-old, world renowned universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
As the capital of the UK London is a globally influential centre of business, finance and culture, where you can find red double-decker buses, black cabs, polite but cold people and bad weather. However, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland all have their own distinctive histories, cultures, traditions and identities – and exploring the great variety that exists within this compact land means that one trip is never enough!
If you want to speak the Queen’s English, or practise your British accent, then you must choose an English course in the UK. The difficult decision comes when selecting where to study. With so many interesting and culturally rich cities and towns to choose from, you will want to come back time and time again! These are our top 5 locations to take an English course in the UK:
London: the capital and city of great landmarks. Visit Big Ben, Buckingham Place, The London Eye, Westminster. You will never be bored and you will make friends from all over the world!
Brighton: often called ‘London-by-the-sea’ Brighton is liberal, arty, forward-thinking, on the beach and just 15 minutes from stunning countryside. A first choice for many English language students.
Oxford: with the university established in the 12th century taking an English course in Oxford is like stepping back in time. Nicknamed the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’ this is the place to be intellectually stimulated and inspired.
Manchester: possibly most famous for its football clubs, Manchester’s rich industrial heritage has made it one of the most important cities in the UK. And where would we be without Emmeline Pankhurst, the Manchester born mother of the Suffragette movement?
Edinburgh: Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat, The Royal Mile – Edinburgh is a fairy-tale-like city of magnificent architecture and an ambience of days gone by.
