Textbooks and classes are certainly a good start for ‘getting to grips’ with the foundations of a language. Within those four walls though, you miss out on an integral part of the language learning experience – cultural immersion. That is where Aspiring English steps in. We take education out of the classroom and into the real world where you can expect to thrive.
Moving to a new place when it does not share your native language can be daunting. We understand that; it is why we strive to support you at each step. We enrol you into our trusted partner language schools, find you the perfect place to stay, plus help you feel part of a community with our programme of social activities and events.
What is the most exciting part? You will be living in Manchester; the metropolitan mecca of the North. Here we share why Manchester is the champion city to master the English Language and how Aspiring English can make it happen.
What is So Great About Manchester?
Situated in the Northwest of England, Manchester has a rich history that traces as far back as the Bronze Age. It was during the industrial revolution though, that Manchester became a world leader in the textile trading industry. The city’s hard-working ethic is signified by its mascot – the Manchester worker bee.
Manchester is known for being full of friendly and welcoming people, unlike the country’s capital city. Whilst London is very expensive, Manchester is very affordable, and has as many activities waiting for you. The city is alive with music, theatre, sport, festivals, and food and drink spots. That is why Mancunians are such happy people. Learning English and using it daily, you will soon be calling the city home when embraced by the Manchester culture.
Learn English in a Place of Pioneers
People have always excelled in Manchester. In sport, science, art and politics, the city consistently churns out champions. Be the pioneer of your English language progression by making Manchester your first choice of UK city for learning English. With Aspiring English it couldn’t be easier.
Manchester is the Gateway to the Countryside
With the Lake District to the North and Peak District to the South, plus the Cheshire countryside and idyllic English villages surrounding the city, you can soon escape busy central Manchester and test your English language skills in the tranquillity of the North West’s natural beauty spots.
