Reasons to do a language exchange in London

Summer is the time we all are waiting for: longer days, nice weather, holidays… Why not take advantage of your free time and study English in London?

These are the reasons you need to come to London this summer to improve your English skills:


Learning English Opens Doors

There is no doubt English one of the most important languages in the world. Following this article by Babbel from about 7.5 billion of the world’s inhabitants, 1.5 billion speak English which is 20% of Earth’s population! However, most of those people aren’t native English speakers. English is a very powerful language, and speaking it could open many doors, especially if you want to work or study abroad in the future.


You will meet people from everywhere

London is one of the most multicultural cities in Europe so you will have the opportunity to make friends from all over the world. This will not just help with your English skills, it will also open your mind and give you some knowledge about life that you can’t find in books!


Constant contact with the language

If you move to London for a while, you will have the opportunity to practise the language 24/7. English is what you will need to communicate with others on a day-to-day basis. This will help your listening and speaking skills very much and you will notice a huge change when you come back to your country.


“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.” – Samuel Johnson

In London you never get bored. Do you know that visiting the museums is free? Yes, you can go to the British, National Gallery or the Tate Modern without spending a penny! You can also enjoy sunny London days in the park (47% of London is green space) or watch a musical or concert in the evening (there are many different entertainment options every day).


So if you don’t have any plans for this summer, don’t think twice: come to London to study English!
