English in Birmingham

Why learn English in Birmingham?- Located in the heart of the West Midlands, Birmingham is a thriving, modern city. The second most populous city in the United Kingdom, Birmingham is also one of the most diverse areas of the country. The Big City redevelopment project has given Birmingham a new vibrancy, making it the ideal place to learn English.

The 2019 Mercer Worldwide Quality of Living report ranked Birmingham as one of the best places to live in the world. It is also a go-to destination for city breaks. Visitors can soak up a range of cultures and cuisines, including the city’s famous Balti Triangle, home of UK-Pakistani cuisine. There are also numerous music venues, museums, galleries and theatres. If the modern Bullring shopping centre isn’t to your taste, there are the traditional markets and small, independent businesses that thrive alongside the city centre’s historic canal. So if you do decide to learn English in Birmingham, you won’t be short of places to visit, or practice your new skill.

Birmingham was traditionally an important engineering and manufacturing centre, and major companies such as Jaguar Land Rover and Cadbury are still based in Birmingham. These employ a significant number of skilled workers. However, the service sector is now Birmingham’s largest employer. The Office of National Statistics reported in 2012 that just over 88% of the area’s workers were employed in this sector.

Nearly 50% of all conferences and exhibitions held in the U.K. are held in Birmingham, and many, such as Crufts and Comic-Con, make use of the expansive National Exhibition Centre. This has led to Birmingham developing a reputation as a hub for major events and conferences. Consequently, tourism and hospitality are two of the key areas in Birmingham’s economy. The importance of this sector will only grow in the coming years, as Birmingham is due to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games. By studying English in Birmingham, you will be ready and able to take advantage of these opportunities.  

People from all over the world have made Birmingham, a diverse city with a population of just over 1 million, their home. According to the latest census data almost 25% of the city’s population were born outside the U.K., while over 11 different languages are spoken here. Despite this diversity, English is the most commonly spoken language in Birmingham. The most recent national census revealed that just over 84% of Birmingham’s residents speak English. By learning English in Birmingham, you will open up a new, vibrant world of opportunity. Why wait a second longer? Take our free English level test or send us a quick enquiry to learn more.
