Without a doubt, the best way to learn English is to travel abroad. In fact, in almost any country in the world, English is spoken more and better than in Spain. Therefore, if you want to perfect or master the most widely spoken language on the planet, we recommend that you don’t think twice and take the leap.
Logically, the best thing is that you travel a good season. In this case, you should ideally look for a job there so that you can interact with people who speak English. Of course, it is also a good idea to leave for a short season and take a course. Today at Vuela Viajes we propose five destinations in Europe where you can improve your English. Would you like to join us?
How could it be otherwise, let’s start by talking about the United Kingdom, one of the best countries in the world to learn English. And here you can find a wide range of courses. In addition, at the moment you can work without the need for a visa . And not only that, but there is no lack of work for foreigners. On the other hand, it is important that you bear in mind that, if you interact with local people, you will be able to learn pure English. The problem is that the standard of living is quite high, especially if you compare it with other European countries.
The demand to study English in Ireland has grown a lot in recent years, something that does not surprise us at all, since there are many advantages that this country offers. For example, you should bear in mind that the price of travel, accommodation and courses is usually cheaper. In addition, you must not forget that this is a tremendously beautiful country with an important historical and cultural heritage, not to mention the proximity of its inhabitants. Of course, the job offer is much lower than in the United Kingdom, so finding a job to pay for your expenses can be somewhat complicated.
Malta is also a good country to learn English. The main problem in this country is that there are many Spaniards. Of course, if you can avoid speaking in your native language, it is an ideal place. And you will not have to say goodbye to the climate, gastronomy and lifestyle of Spain. In addition, the standard of living is not very expensive and there is plenty of job offer. As if that were not enough, here you will enjoy a beautiful coastline with crystal clear waters, beautiful fishing villages and medieval architecture that is worth visiting.
Believe it or not, Sweden is also a good country to learn or improve English. In fact, it is one of the countries with the best level of English in the world (as a second language). This is due to the Anglo-American influence, business ties and the passion of Swedes to travel abroad. In addition, it must be borne in mind that since 1949 English is a compulsory subject for all students. The main problem with this destination is that the English courses are not very numerous.
Finally, we want to talk about the Netherlands, another place where the inhabitants have a very good level of English. In fact, 94% of its population speaks this language. And don’t think that this is the only advantage! It is a country with a low unemployment rate and fairly cheap English courses. The main problem is that the cost of living is quite high . Regardless of the option you choose, we recommend that you interact as little as possible with Spanish or people who speak Spanish. And if you become Spanish-speaking friends, make an effort and don’t use your native language.
