Why

Thinking of studying, working or just living in London? My advice: go for it. London has so many fantastic things to offer, from breathtaking cityscapes to its rich culture, music and art (not to mention the British accent).

There’s nothing quite like the excitement and variety that this buzzing city offers. Here are just five of the many reasons why you should study English in London.

As a matter of fact, one-third of all Londoners are foreign-born, and over 200 languages are spoken throughout its many streets and neighborhoods. London is the perfect placeto make international friends and get in touch with different cultures within the same city.

2. Diverse scenery

Speaking of neighborhoods, every area of the city has its own distinct style and atmosphere.

3. Food, food, food

As a hub of ethnic and cultural diversity, London’s culinary scene is an eclectic mix of many foods and flavors. There are markets serving delicious dishes, restaurants with many gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options and cute coffee shops all around the city. Borough Market is also a fan-favorite, with vendors from all over the world selling delectable fare.
