Choosing an English Language course is much more complicated than simply knowing which type of course you want. There are so many factors that need to be taken into consideration including which country you want to study in, whether you want to be in a large city or small town, whether you want to study in a group or have one-to-one tuition, what kind of social programme you will enjoy the most, and so on.
Great Britain provides something for everyone and anyone interested in studying an English Language course. With its diverse countryside offering everything from mountains and lakes to stunning coastlines, and with towns which date back over 2000 years to modern cities with all the shopping and entertainment a student could wish for, there are options to suit every student.
Here we look at York which, founded in AD 71, clearly appeals to those with an interest in history and, in particular, the Vikings. There are many places you can read about York and its incredible past including: www.visityork.org but here are some interesting facts about the city:
