It is estimated that the English
language is used by 508 million people worldwide, and English is the second
most widely spoken language in the entire world, being beaten to the top spot
only by Mandarin Chinese. Its broad
usage and popularity makes it unsurprising that you want to learn English,
either for the pure education and enjoyment of it, or for more practical or
professional purposes. There are many
native English speaking global destinations, including Australia, Canada, the
Carribean, Hong Kong, and the United States of America,
for you to visit in order to attain working English knowledge.
So, as good a starting point for you as any is to consider your geographical location alongside the native English speaking country that most appeals to you.
English courses in Sydney or attendance at an English school USA might meet the individual criteria of many students.
Your own very individual and very personal requirements may be better
matched by a temporary educational stay in the United Kingdom itself. If so, you still have a few different countries to choose from, including the prospect of an English school in Ireland, an English school in Scotland,
or perhaps an English school in London, the feted English capital city.
