It’s now the summer of 2022, and we are able to enjoy the idea of normalcy as we are coming out of the Covid-19 epidemic. And a wonderful part of normalcy is the fact that we can travel again… at least much more freely than in previous years.
And among all the beautiful and historical travel destinations to choose from, for many London is at the top of the list. It is a city that encompasses both beauty and history in addition to culture and art. On top of all the recreational aspects the city has to offer, it is also one of the most important global business hubs in the world. So if you are getting ready to experience all the wonder London has to offer, or you’re on your way to close an international business deal, it is surely worth considering gaining an edge by studying at one of the best English schools London has to offer.
Making the most of your holiday
For whichever reason you choose for coming to London, it goes without saying that the better you communicate, the better your experience will be. Despite all the different cultures and languages one may encounter in this diverse metropolis, the predominant language of England’s capital is, of course, English. But it doesn’t just stop there, with this very obvious point. On top of the two main London accents you will likely encounter, there are also over 40 other English accents and dialects coming from all over the United Kingdom.
This can seem daunting even for a native English speaker, but the challenge can also be looked at as a fun adventure in linguistics. English speakers from all over the U.K. and the world can be found in this international city, giving everyone else a taste of different backgrounds and styles. In order to get the most from this melting pot of different cultures, though, it is necessary that you yourself also have a strong foundation in the English language. By having a basic knowledge of the English grammar structure, good comprehension, and speaking skills, you can already begin to flourish throughout your English expedition.
Particularly for those who travel to London “just on business” , there is a great benefit from taking an English course while immersed in the language. Of course, improving one’s English will only increase the chance of success in their business ventures, but having a more in depth understanding of the language, especially in Business English, allows the speaker to feel more confident and further enjoy the work that they perform.
And back to those visiting for leisure, let’s not forget how much smoother your holiday will go when you can better understand the logistics of daily life here in London. Navigating “the Tube”, London’s underground metro system, will become a lot more manageable in order to explore the vast city. On top of all the other practical ways that studying English will enhance your stay in London, you can also find that as you speak the language you are also allowing yourself to become more integrated as a Londoner.
