Want to go to England?

It is logical that England is the reference for language courses. Universities such as Oxford, Cambridge or London give it absolute legitimacy. Students have the opportunity to learn authentic British English.

In London, you live to the rhythm of Big Ben. Strolling along the Thames, in Hyde Park, visiting the soccer stadiums, shopping in Camden Town or in the covered gallery in Covent Garden, there is something for everyone. Piccadilly Circus – not far from the M&Ms store – is the logical place for young people to hang out in the afternoon. It’s better if you enroll directly with an international school rather than through a travel agency: you’ll have the opportunity to stay more easily in central London.

Not far from London, we find Bristol, a hidden treasure and more affordable. England has always been considered one of the best places to learn English abroad and here you can certainly do it. With an independent spirit that has captivated visitors for decades, Bristol is now considered one of the most culturally important cities in the south of England.

Want to go to Australia?

In Australia, surfing, soccer (Australian) and rugby (7-a-side, 13-a-side or 15-a-side) are very popular sports. For those who want to combine learning English with physical activities, the country of the kangaroos is a very interesting option.

Port Douglas (Queensland, Australia), a sports marina 70 km north of Cairns, is a small coastal town with just over a thousand inhabitants. It welcomes many young people in language courses in summer. Four Mile Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia. It is ideal for kitesurfing and diving. During the jellyfish season (not in summer, of course), a net is installed to prevent the proliferation of these rubbery predators.

It should be noted that the schools offer intensive and general courses adapted to your level of English and exam preparation programs for advanced students.

Want to go to the U.S.?

What if you spoke Wall Street English like a New York trader? Better than Los Angeles or Miami – where Hispanic culture is still very present – New York is the ideal American city for (future) business-banking-finance students.

Don’t hesitate to go on a language course. Some of the things to do in New York are playing soccer in Central Park, eating a hot dog or a slice of pizza around the illuminated Times Square, and strolling across the Brooklyn Bridge to relive the best scenes of American cinema (Batman, I am Legend, etc.). Those who want to see the Statue of Liberty up close can take a boat ride on the Hudson River (about $25 for a 3-hour trip). Finally, you have to go shopping on the main streets (Broadway) to bring back some “NY” souvenirs for your friends. You can also visit the Lego store in Rockefeller Plaza, which is very impressive.

Want to go to Ireland?

Dublin offers an interesting alternative with its strong cultural identity. The Irish accent is inimitable. Vowels are softened, consonants are hardened (especially the R) and the G is dropped. “Morning” becomes “Mornin.” With an Irish accent, you can boast of speaking very different English.

The Irish capital has everything to attract young French people. For shopping lovers, the pedestrian Grafton Street stretches between Trinity College and Saint Stephen’s Green. There are shoe shops, clothing stores and florists. For book lovers, the Chester Beatty Library is a museum with original books on display.

Another good option is Kilkenny. In the southeast. It is considered a cultural center of the country, with a population of less than 30,000 inhabitants and a strong historical background that gives this destination numerous castles and churches. Located 90 minutes from Dublin, Kilkenny is a very special place, which has retained much of the medieval culture and has become a different part of the Irish landscape.

Do you want to go to Malta?

Malta is an ideal place to improve your English while enjoying the sun and the charms of the Mediterranean. It is usually half the price of London. Of course, the Maltese sometimes speak Shakespeare’s language with a strange accent, so a quality charter, called Feltom, has been created to guarantee the seriousness of the local courses.

If you want to improve your English, go to Malta. Rocks, sandy beaches -very crowded in summer-, turquoise blue sea, pasta and antipasti await you in St. Julian’s. It is also one of the most festive destinations in the Mediterranean. The neighborhood of Paceville lives to the rhythm of the party: from the racket of the bars to the deafening sound of the discotheques. Ideal for students. Sliema is more suitable for window shopping, with a three-story shopping mall (The Point).

Want to go to Canada?

Canada is a destination with modern and cosmopolitan cities surrounded by nature where you can live many adventures. Montreal can be unbeatable as it is listed in the top 10 student cities by QS University and you find an important student community because McGill University is located here.

This destination is multilingual. During your trip to study English in Canada, take the opportunity to learn a few words in French, the language of love.

Canada is one of the most adventurous countries to learn English. Just outside every city, there are parks and small towns to ski, hike, climb or connect with nature. The people welcome you warmly, as this is a country open to immigration. It is true that some Canadians seem a bit distant, but let them get to know you.

Now also, if studying in a safe city with a mild climate, plenty of outdoor activities at any time of the year, spectacular views, good coffee and some of the best Asian food in North America sounds ideal, Vancouver may be perfect for you. This Canadian city has protected its natural environment by strategically limiting urban sprawl and taking care of green spaces, including the 405-hectare Stanley Park (famous for its totem poles, a fine example of traditional art).
