To learn English and make rapid progress in your practice, there's nothing like a language stay in a major English city. Combining English classes, sports activities, and cultural visits, this formula is increasingly popular among students. Built in 1207 on the banks of the River Mersey, Liverpool now has nearly 500,000 inhabitants and is among the top 3 most important cities in England.
Located in the western part of Lancashire, 280 km northwest of London, the city experienced spectacular expansion in the 19th century thanks to its major commercial port. Several districts of the city and the port are classified as UNESCO World Heritage sites. In the 20th century, "four lads from Liverpool" made it famous as the birthplace of the Beatles. The city is also renowned for its football club. As the European Capital of Culture in 2008, the metropolis attracts thousands of tourists every year and is among the top 100 most visited cities in the world.
Multicultural Liverpool offers visitors numerous opportunities for entertainment, whether it's exploring its cultural heritage, shopping in the new shopping center, or enjoying trendy bars and clubs. Don't miss the Beatles museum and the Merseyside Maritime Museum, which tells the story of the Titanic. The city is also full of iconic monuments, as well as Victorian houses listed by UNESCO, and multiple art galleries such as the Tate Gallery. After the sightseeing, make a stop at the Cavern Club for some entertaining moments or enjoy a beer at Peter Kavanagh's, the city's oldest pub.
