About Leeds: What to see and do.
Why Learn English in Leeds.
Leeds is in the north of England, in the County of West Yorkshire, and has a population of 782,000 inhabitants. Going to Leeds is synonymous with traveling to the fastest growing city in the UK. It is the largest business and financial centre after London, thanks to the great impact that the Industrial Revolution left in this city and that turned it into a great industrial nucleus, in addition to being a very important commercial and educational centre, housing today three outstanding universities.
A city proud of its history, Leeds is an ideal setting to learn English. Large enough so that there is a great cultural and activity offer and, at the same time, cosy enough to never lose yourself in it. Our program in Leeds is surrounded by some of the best tourist and cultural attractions in England.
