Learn English in London and have great time – on a budget

Sharing is caring!

Are you an English language student looking for a budget friendly destination to explore? London is one of Europe’s most historical and exciting capital cities, with plenty to offer all students – from innovative museums and galleries, to vibrant markets and iconic landmarks. But as any student knows well, money can be tight. Fortunately, there are numerous chances throughout the year in 2023 that allow students on a budget to experience classic London while saving some cash! 

We run English courses for adults in London, and students can look forward to a truly unique experience. The EC London school is located in the heart of Islington, offering students the opportunity to explore this vibrant city and its many attractions.  

The quality of education is our top priority. Our highly qualified staff and experienced teachers provide excellent instruction in all aspects of English language learning from grammar to pronunciation and conversational fluency. We also provide access to a wide range of resources including engaging books and interactive materials and offer regular assessments, so students can keep track of their progress to ensure they get the most out of their course. 

We offer a range of courses so you can choose the course that best suits their individual needs. With state-of-the-art facilities and small class sizes (a maximum of 12 students), EC London ensures that all students receive the highest quality education in an intimate and supportive environment.  

We have our own exciting activities available both inside and outside the classroom. From pub crawls and film nights to trips out into town – there’s something for everyone! 

From free music festivals and public events across the city, this article will explore ways that language learners can enjoy their time in London without spending too much. One of the most exciting and affordable places to visit is Camden Lock Market. Here you will find street food stalls, vintage clothing stores, art galleries, and so much more. Plus, admission is free, though you might want to buy a lot! 

Another great spot that won’t break the bank is Hyde Park. This beautiful park offers lakeside views, gardens, playgrounds and activities like paddle boating or horse riding – all without costing a penny. For those who want to get closer to nature, Hampstead Heath provides breath-taking scenery as well as grasslands perfect for picnics and walks.  

The Southbank Centre is a great spot for music lovers, with live performances every night of the week in all kinds of genres. Entry to these shows can be as low as £5. Some museums are also free; get together with a bunch of classmates and make a day of it. 

Our friendly and professional staff will ensure you receive a warm welcome and make your London experience both enjoyable and rewarding. We can help you with your social calendar and help you to find close and quality accommodation too.
