Study English in England at a State High or Private School
Study the preferred British English in England - the mother
country of the English language. With around 55 million inhabitants
England is a leading world economy often deliberately distancing
itself from mainland Europe thus making the island more attractive
and interesting, with a different culture, money and time.
England offers much variety - a countryside rich with ancient
cities, idyllic villages, massive Cathedrals, stately homes,
castles, Tudor houses, centres for music and the arts, while every
teenager can also enjoy being in the land of cutting-edge fashion
trends and the dynamic British pop culture.
From picnics and country walks to mountain climbing, caving,
hang-gliding, surfing and sailing. England's green hills and
meadows in the south and east, with moorlands, rugged mountains and
beautiful lakes in the north and west offer the ideal landscape for
almost any outdoor activity. The island offers 17820km of beautiful
coastline - sandy beaches and dramatic cliffs - with no place in
England being more than 120km from the sea.
Make friends with the honest, humorous and easy going people
with easy access to mainland Europe for weekend family visits while
studying English in England.

English love their sport
Watching and playing sports is an important part of life in
England. Many of the world's sports began in the UK - Cricket,
Football, Rugby, Golf, Lawn Tennis, Badminton and Table Tennis
which started in 1880 by Cambridge University students using cigar
boxes and champagne corks. The origins of other sports came from
British sports. For example, American Football from Rugby, and
Baseball from the old English game of Rounders.
Families enjoy watching cricket on the village green or joining
in the passion for their Rugby team through songs. Try watching
Wimbledon eating strawberries and cream or drink a Pimms cocktail
with boating enthusiasts at Henley Royal Regatta on the banks of
the River Thames.
England is famous for its fish and chips, English breakfasts,
roast dinners, Cornish pasties, pies, sandwiches and trifle.
Traditionally food was based on beef, pork, lamb, fish and chicken
with potatoes and vegetables, however today, food is much more
sophisticated being influenced by the many exquisite restaurants,
and many chef personalities like Jamie Oliver and Delia Smith.
The memories people take home
The English are known to be polite, patient and honest, with a
strong sense of humour, and are extremely hospitable and easy
going. Often the English are referred to as reserved in that they
appear to hold back their emotions and this may be your initial
impression but you will see this change and our openness and warmth
will lead to very close, genuine and supportive friendships
developing. Humour is an important part of the British way of life,
including laughing at ourselves (try watching Little Britain) and
is something you will always remember after studying English in
