If you are an international student who is relocating to the United Kingdom to study English, choosing conventional hotels and guest houses for your accommodation, might be a good idea, however, have you considered home stays as your primary accommodation whilst you study the intricacies of English? Home stays prove to be a better option as they offer you with an opportunity to understand British culture, as you will be staying with a native family. In addition, learning through immersion is one of the most useful tools when it comes to studying a new language. Living with native speakers will provide you with ample of opportunities to practise speaking English.
There are a number of reasons why you would want to share a house or a flat.
1. It is economical – A house share will help you save a lot of money, as compared to an independent house. Moreover, there is a good chance that you will find a shared occupancy flat near to your learning centre, helping you save on your commute.
2. Opportunity to socialise – When sharing a flat with others, you get to know about their culture and background. In addition, you can practise speaking English with them and ask for constructive feedbacks.
Student residencies are the most preferred accommodation. You’re surrounded by people of your own age who are all in the same boat. Living with people of the same age group and profession will provide you with a number of opportunities to create strong friendships. Not just this, it might positively impact your English studies, as you will have ample of time to practice what you have learned at the Language Fair, and gain confidence in your skills.

Studio apartments offer a great deal of convenience. If you are unsure whether you will be able to get adjust in shared accommodation, or homestays, we would recommend you to go for studio apartments. Studio apartments are ideal for single and double occupancies. Living separately will also offer you unrestricted freedom, and will help you enjoy your own company.
