ELC Blog | How to choose a good English language school - Part 1

Date Added: | Comments: | Category: | Tags:

Looking for an English language school is a tough task; there are a lot of things to consider in order to make sure you receive the best possible teaching and learn as much as possible! Everybody is different, with different likes, goals and needs, so a school that may suit one person may not necessarily suit another.

In this post we attempt to give some advice to help you in your search for the right language school for you. In part 1 we explain why the choice of location is important to consider:

Country 

English is taught in many countries such as the US, Canada, Malta, Australia, Philippines and the UK. Despite all the choice we believe Cream Teathat the UK is the perfect place to study English, after all it is the home of the language! The UK also has a rich cultural history with various famous destinations and world renowned literature, cinema and music coming from the UK. Its proximity to other European destinations is also a benefit to anyone studying here. Students can take time out from studying and easily visit many European destinations, including Paris by the Eurostar in just over 2 hours from London.

Town/City

Everyone has heard of London, Oxford or Cambridge but the UK has so many unique and distinct locations that is worth looking at other options and considering what would suit you best. Eastbourne, for example, is a seaside town, just 90 minutes by train from London on the south-coast of England which is in easy reach of some of the most iconic and beautiful countryside in England and some of the most important places in English history.

Check back soon for part 2 in which we consider other important factors!
