Truro is the capital city of Cornwall, a beautiful region in the far south-west of England.
As well as having lots of great shops, cafés and restaurants, the cathedral city of Truro has all the modern facilities that students will need such as: gyms, a swimming pool, a cinema, parks and a library. Plus, we have a fantastic network of host families around the city so you can stay close to the school.
From your base in Truro, you are in the perfect location to explore the whole of Cornwall. Of course, we offer a wide range of excursions and activities for you to enjoy, but we know our adult students also enjoy exploring Cornwall for themselves.
Truro is the central hub for public transport in the region. It has lots of regular train and bus connections so you can easily reach almost any part of the county.
It is a county with a rich cultural history that is not well-known outside of the United Kingdom. This is one of the many reasons why it is the perfect place to come to for an English language course and study holiday.
As you travel around the region, you will see clues to its important past as one of the most important regions in the world for the mining of tin at the start of the industrial revolution.
As well as mining, the coastal location of Cornwall has given it an important maritime history linked to exploration, fishing and pirates!
Much of this has been captured in TV series like Poldark and by famous writers such as Daphne du Maurier and Rosamund Pilcher.
While tin mining and piracy may have disappeared into history and legend, the stories and relics are alive and well and will be brought to life during your time studying with us at Language Tree.
The modern county of Cornwall is an exciting and vibrant county with a huge variety of great things to do.
Have a look on our Visit Cornwall page or our Social Activities & Excursions page to get an idea of all the different things you will get to do on our courses.
