British and International Culture

Cultural Immersion

There are many ways to learn English, but we truly believe that the best way to develop your knowledge and understanding of the language is to immerse yourself not just in the language, but in the culture surrounding it. England is the birthplace of the English language, and whether you study in London or Canterbury you will experience valuable national and corporate culture that will give you a deeper understanding of the language. Our social programme takes full advantage of everything that London and Canterbury has to offer, giving you the opportunity to continue practising your English outside of the classroom and really immerse yourself in the local culture. 

Beyond British heritage

A true cultural experience includes much more than just the incredibly rich history of London and Canterbury. You will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the local way of life; the rich food culture, bustling street markets, varied theatre performances and of course the famous British humour! All of this will provide you with a valuable cultural context to your language learning.


Culture isn’t just about the city, the buildings and the food, it is also about the people and how they communicate with one another. One of the best ways to truly understand the local culture is to stay with one of our homestay families. Living in a homestay gives you a unique insight into British family life, the way that we communicate, and if you’re lucky, also the famous British humour!
