Why Study English In Wales?
Beautiful national parks, thousands of kilometres of coastline, castles, mountains and unspoilt beaches: what more reason do you need to study in Wales? It’s a land that’s full of variety – from the mountains of the north to the cities of the south.
Perhaps best of all though, Wales is still an undiscovered area for learning English.
There’s no better place to learn a language than in a bi-lingual country. Wales has two official languages: English and Welsh. So, from the start you will be among people who understand how natural it is to speak more than one language, and who will respond with understanding when you communicate in a foreign language.
Wales may be a small country, but there are schools to meet every need. Accredited centres at universities, colleges, and private schools offer communicative and academic English, executive language training and professional development for English teachers. You can also choose between city, country or seaside locations.
There’s an incredible amount of outdoor space in Wales. But, if you’re looking for a lively evening, the cities offer the entertainment. The developing capital city of Cardiff provides pubs, bars, nightclubs, restaurants, a re-developed bay area and a variety of events.
Down the road is Swansea, the second city of Wales. From the modern city centre to the Gower Peninsula and the Mumbles coastline, it combines the excitement of city life with attractive tourist spots and places of historical interest.
With 1200 km of coastline, Wales has a lot to offer to those who love water sports or just love the sea and beaches. Sailing, diving, surfing, fishing, coasteering: all of these are popular pastimes enjoyed along the coastline of Wales.
The Snowdonia National Park in North Wales has breathtaking climbs and stunning views. A visit to mid-Wales will take you to Lake Bala and Lake Vyrnwy, high into the Cambrian Mountains, and then southwards through the Brecon Beacons, the craggy mountains and long strung-out villages of the old coal-mining valleys.
Wales is small in size and population, with fewer than 3 million people living in a landmass of just over 8,000 square miles. It’s second to none for its scenery and space, but also boasts a vibrant cultural life.
