Why LILA* Liverpool is the place to learn English year round

LILA* Liverpool shared with us why its great to study with them...

At LILA* Liverpool, we offer a wide variety of courses to international students year-round, meaning there is something for everyone at any time of year. The modern, family-run school is in the heart of Liverpool city centre which is a vibrant and cosmopolitan destination for all ages from junior students to mature learners. LILA* is a school for any season and maintains the quality teaching and flexible approach at all times, so students can feel like part of the LILA* family whether you study with us for a few weeks or stay long term.

During the winter season, this is typically the ‘off-peak’ season for language schools, but with LILA* there are many benefits to choosing this time of year to start your English studies in the UK. A lot of students decide to travel during the summer months, however by choosing to study during the winter you get more choice and a more personal learning experience. Although there are fewer students studying at the school, the welcoming and lively atmosphere is still present at LILA*.

Here’s why you should choose LILA* as your study destination and why you should consider studying in the winter months…

1. Quiet season in the school

During the winter months, there are fewer students in the school meaning we can offer smaller class sizes as well as keeping our varied nationality mix. We welcome students from over 32 countries throughout the year, so studying with us at LILA* during the quiet season allows you to get to know your classmates better, as well as students in other classes and levels. We also offer a weekly social programme to give students the opportunity to socialise with others in addition to practising your English and learning more about Liverpool and the UK. Although it is the ‘quiet’ season, LILA* continues to be the vibrant and exciting place to study for all students.

“I recommend LILA* because you can learn a lot of things in a little time. They have a lot of different nationalities. The classes are small so you can ask questions and the teacher can help with any problems.” - Maria, Spain

2. Christmas in the UK

Studying at LILA* over the Christmas period is an exciting and memorable time for students, especially if you don’t have the same Christmas traditions in your home country. When you’re not in class, you could try a British Christmas dinner, visit the Christmas markets, and go ice skating or decorate a Christmas tree. Liverpool is a great destination at any time of year; however it becomes a magical winter wonderland throughout December. LILA* is just a two minute walk from Liverpool One, the modern shopping area, which is engulfed in bright and colourful decorations and lights, not forgetting the iconic 30 metre-tall Christmas tree made up of multi-coloured heart-shaped lights. Liverpool also boasts two Christmas markets; one set at the famous St George’s Hall plateau and the other on the waterfront as part of the Pier Head Ice Festival. There is always something happening in Liverpool for LILA* students to take advantage of and at Christmas it is no exception.

“Liverpool is one of the best cities in the UK. Liverpool is amazing, there are always activities every week so you never feel bored. We have got Albert Dock, the city centre and the nightlife is amazing here. The people here are really nice and friendly, I like them.” – Ali, Saudi Arabia

3. Host Families

Homestay accommodation is always popular with students as you get the opportunity to practise your English every day at home, as well as learning about British culture and customs. We have a network of over 300 host families in Liverpool who enjoy spending time with students and also learning about the students’ cultures. During the winter season, as there are fewer students we have a lot of host families available to host. There is a lot more availability, so we can place students with the perfect host family matching all of your preferences. It also means that the host families can share the Christmas period, and the Christmas traditions, with you.

Our host families said…

“I had a student from Saudi and she said when she was a little girl she would go past the English quarter and would see all the Christmas trees and lights she said it was so lovely. I let her put the tree up and she was so happy. That year we had Christmas dinner with a Middle Eastern twist, and our family loved it “ – Georgina
