Are you thinking about which English school in the UK is best fit for you? This is a common dilemma for would-be English learners, especially with so many English schools in the UK.

However, worry not! In this blog, we examine the important points to consider when choosing an English course in the UK, and why English-in-York ticks all the right boxes.

One indicator of a school’s teaching quality is its accreditation. Institutions which are accredited follow strict quality standards, ensuring that you receive a high-quality learning experience. English-in-York, holding accreditations from the British Council, Quality English and IALC, has been delivering high-quality teaching for over 40 years, with highly experienced teachers who are focused on achieving your goals.
