Many of our students will already be well aware that one of the best ways to practice their newfound English language skills is to get out & about, practicing! This makes the summer months with all the fab events that take place a host of wonderful opportunities. Our team of top English tutors recommend setting yourself a goal every time you head out somewhere to practice your English. It might be as simple as asking a question in a restaurant of striking up a conversation with a stall-holder at a market. If there’s an area of your English language skills that you want to improve, don’t be shy! The more you practice in real-life conversations, the easier it will become.
Here are some of our recommendations for places to visit this August where you are guaranteed a chance to practice your English.
