Bournemouth is one of the most cosmopolitan towns in the UK and it is the second most popular destination for language students after London. There must be a reason that the many thousands of people choose here for English courses.
World Choice Education is an educational agency that have been helping students and professionals from all around the world since 2012. We help them to find the best choice for their needs in the UK (English courses, internships, work experience, volunteering opportunities, etc). All of our students say that Bournemouth is the greatest place to come to learn English.
We can call Bournemouth ‘the young city’. It’s full of international students that come here from all parts of the UK, moreover, from all around the world to do a degree or a master degree at Bournemouth University. Even if the university students leave in summer, Bournemouth is always full of people, students that come for learning English come instead. Bournemouth is also one of the popular holiday place for British, where people can enjoy the summer sunshine and the unforgettable view of the sea.
Yes I said “the sun shine” is glorious in Bournemouth. It does sound unbelievable if you ever heard about the weather in the UK. Doesn’t it? But it’s actually true! We can assure you the weather in Bournemouth is the closest one to the Spanish’s over the UK’s. Well.. maybe we are overstating it. Let’s say it’s the closest to the north Spanish weather at least. That is not that bad, is that? Bournemouth is best known for its stunning coastline, which provides seven glorious miles of beach and safe sea swimming, plus all the water-sports you can imagine.
Bournemouth’s stunning coastline is full of action all year round as it hosts exciting events and festivals. In August, there is the annual Bournemouth Air Festival, the biggest event of its kind in the world. Offering four days of fantastic flying displays, evening entertainment, shopping and much more. In October Bournemouth lights up with the Arts by the Sea Festival, with ten days of events, installations and experiences for everyone to enjoy.
Also if you love watersports, the beaches in Bournemouth beach offer a wide range of watersports from surfing to sailing, canoeing to coasteering.
Everyone knows that it costs a lot to live in the UK. But I would say that Bournemouth is cheaper than other places in comparison. The accommodation fee is at least £100 – £200 less than London’s, and transport fee is just a half price. You can also eat out for £10-£15 per person and if you like exercise you can join a gym for just £20 per month or even cheaper.
So if you are thinking of going abroad to learn English you should choose Bournemouth. Whenever you decide to come, you couldn’t ask for a better language stay. Trust me, I tell you from my experience, this is actually my second time being here. Bournemouth is a particularly charming place.
The Bournemouth festival event which attracts many people because everyone loves to eat !!! this event is a way to be able to taste new flavours from different countries (Anglophone, hispanophone , francophone, Caribbean etc …).
In addition to this many renowned chefs will be present at the festival. The food and wine festival in Bournemouth s a way to develop the market of tourism as it attracts many visitors to the region.
