Learning English in England is a great way to improve your chances of becoming fluent quickly. There are plenty of places across the UK where you can settle in to learn. However, individuals tend to learn more quickly when they can immerse themselves in the best of British culture.

London is the most sought-after place for travellers to learn English because there’s so much to see and do. It also boasts great transport links with many places in the south of England, so you can opt to live in a smaller city with a slower pace and still enjoy all the fun of the UK’s capital. Here are three top places to learn English in England.
