Learn English in England

Take an English course in England, home of traditional villages, modern cities and a unique cultural heritage.   

England combines beautiful rural landscapes with fast-paced cities, incredible architecture and a unique culture. Here you can visit ancient monuments such as Stonehenge, explore the historical cobbled streets of towns like Bath and Canterbury, follow in the footsteps of The Beatles in the trendy city of Liverpool or trek through beautiful national parks in the Lake District, New Forest or Exmoor. Of course, many visitors are drawn to the capital, London, home to Buckingham Palace, the Big Ben, Oxford Street and an incredible arts and music scene.

Although not always well-loved, the classics of British cuisine have become famous around the world. Whether it's afternoon tea at the Ritz, fish and chips at the seaside, a pint of real ale in a traditional pub or a classic full English breakfast, there are plenty of things to try! Having formerly been a colonial power, British cuisine is influenced by exotic spices that were brought to the UK from far flung places. For example, although it originated in India, curry is considered a national dish and you will easily find a curry house in any town.

English culture mixes the country's historical roots with a love of sport and a dark sense of humor. With world famous universities, thinkers and artists, England is a great place for those interested in history and culture. Many of the country's fantastic museums are completely free to visit so you can learn a lot without spending a thing! In terms of sport, football has been played here since the medieval period so it's no wonder that it's become part of British culture. However, other sports like cricket, rugby, tennis and cycling are also very popular. And as for that sense of humor, you just need to watch Monty Python, Black Books, Ricky Gervais or Rowan Atkinson to get a taste of British sarcasm and self-deprecation.

England - Travel Guide


Find out about the required documentation for entry into your destination country. It is mandatory to have appropriate medical insurance during the entire duration of your stay abroad.

Safety and security
England is considered a very safe country for travellers. However, it is advisable to be cautious on the road, because whether you are a motorist or a pedestrian, traffic on the left can be tricky in the first few days if you're not used to it. As weather conditions can change suddenly, we advise you to check out the right equipment before you go hiking.

The security situation is subject to changes over time. We therefore recommend that you visit the website travel.state.gov for further information.

Health
The following vaccinations are recommended for everyone travelling to England: Diphtheria, Tetanus, Poliomyelitis & Measles. For general health information we recommend travelhealthpro.org.uk and fitfortravel.nhs.uk.

Currency: Pound sterling (GBP)
For longer journeys it can be worthwhile to open a bank account locally, in order to be able to receive also small amounts free of charge.

Tip
In some restaurants, the tip is already included in the bill. Otherwise, the tip for good service is about 10%. If you are staying in a hotel, you can thank the chambermaid or porter with 1 or 2 GBP per night or per piece of luggage. For the taxi driver, round up the final amount.

On the website numbeo you can find more information about the cost of living in England.
