Come to Birmingham!
It is the ideal location to learn English giving you the change to live and study in a truly multicultural environment with a wide range of leisure facilities.
Birmingham is the second biggest city in the UK and while it offers services, venues and cultural opportunities equal to any large European city, you will find living expenses much cheaper than in London. There are a wide variety of museums, theatres and music venues as well as thriving nightlife, world-class sports events and venues and excellent shopping facilities.
Birmingham has unrivalled transport links with the rest of the UK. London is 90 minutes away by train and major tourist destinations like Stratford-upon-Avon (the birthplace of William Shakespeare) and Warwick Castle are less that 1 hour away. Birmingham International Airport, with flights to destinations all over Europe, is a ten-minute train journey from the city centre.
