Nottingham is a great destination for English Language students

ILS English building

Esmee Quinton of Quality English, who grew up in Nottingham, highly recommends the city as a great city for English language students such as those at Quality English school, ILS on Clumber Avenue.

The location is perfect. As Nottingham is in the middle of the country it couldn’t be easier for students to travel to the most popular tourist destinations, whether it’s sightseeing in London, shopping in Birmingham or walking in the beautiful Peak District. Public transport is safe, convenient and reliable so students can remain independent throughout their stay.

Famed for its Robin Hood connection, students visiting Nottingham can get lost in the legend, visiting attractions such as Nottingham Castle, Sherwood Forest, the Major Oak and the Robin Hood Experience to name a few.

Nottingham’s market square is the largest city square in the UK, dominated by the grand Council House and contemporary water features. This central area comes alive at night with many places to enjoy music or dance the night away. For foodies, Nottingham has the largest selection of restaurants in the region. With such a multi-cultural population, visitors can try dishes from every continent. My favourite restaurant is Café Rouge on Bridlesmithgate, I would highly recommend it to students coming to the UK.

For those who enjoy their retail therapy, Nottingham is a shopping destination like no other, with numerous shopping centres and independent boutiques such as those found in the fashionable Hockley district to choose from. After a long day shopping, my favourite thing is to see the latest film at Nottingham’s famous Broadway cinema followed by a visit next door to the cosy Lee Rosy’s Café with over 100 types of tea to choose from.

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect

Language is certainly one of our best creations. Without it, it would be difficult for us to coexist, establish communities and share feelings.
