Why study English in Belfast?

The best way to learn a language is to surround yourself with native speakers. That means to learn English, you should spend time in an English speaking country.

Of course, the obvious destinations might be London or New York.

However, it’s worth thinking about what makes a city great for international students. Belfast has the perfect combination of culture, affordability and a laid back lifestyle. After all, you want to have a great experience outside your English class.

Learning English is also much easier when you can get out and meet locals. These interactions will help to build your confidence, as well as improving your listening and speaking skills.

English lessons for work and study

Of course, many people have more specific language learning goals. We offer a number of other courses which are aimed at these students. For example, we have courses which are specifically aimed at helping you pass your IELTS. We also offer bespoke one-to-one English courses for learners with other goals.

If you are unsure which English course is right for you, don’t hesitate to get in touch by phone or email.
