Language and cultural programmes for foreign students throughout the UK and Ireland

 Wales is a nation with a rich and diverse culture. As well as having a strong British Identity, Wales has a wonderful and unique character of it's own. The Welsh people are renowned for their charm and welcome, musical and artistic talents and strong work ethic which dates back to the Victorian era.

Current Welsh centres include: Cardiff, Swansea, Bridgend & Rhyl and many more.

Wales is the birth place of perhaps one of the most famous children's writers of all time, the acclaimed writer of 'James and the Giant Peach' and 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' - Roald Dahl. The rich cultural language of Welsh has also contributed to a strong identity and the nation was part of the movement towards the freedom of the working classes during the Industrial Revolution. One of the finest examples of a coal mine is The Big Pit, near Cardiff.

Steeped in history, Wales is a vastly modern looking nation which boasts it's very own parliament and some of the finest medieval castles in the UK. Touched by the Viking kingdoms and Norman invaders alike, Wales is an incredible small nation to visit. Who could resist the birthplace of artists and celebrities such as The Manic Steet Preachers, Stereophonics, Dylan Thomas, Anthony Hopkins and Tom Jones?

Why not visit Wales? From the bustling city of Cardiff, packed with history, Cardiff Castle and the magnificent Millennium Stadium to the second highest mountain in the British Isles located in the Snowdonia National Park, or the majestic beaches of Pembrokeshire. You can't say you've seen the British Isles until you have been to Wales.
