Speak with Native English Speakers
Where can you meet native speakers in London to practice your English?
Find out here!
Before moving to London, you probably imagined native Londoners either as (a) polite, socially awkward aristocrats or (b) rude, beer-guzzling cockneys. But after a few months of living here… you still might not have met one!
Don’t worry: our city is so multicultural that native Londoners can be hard to find. Luckily, while you might not meet someone born here, there are plenty of native English speakers to practice with.
Get involved in a local shop, charity, library, community centre… or even one of London’s star attractions like the British Museum! You’ll be sure to meet some great people rooted in your local area through volunteering.
Go on Guided Walks
– Even if you’ve been in London for ages, this is a great way to improve your listening and speaking skills. Unseen Tours, led by formerly homeless Londoners, will also give you a unique insight into London’s streets and society!
Get out of London
Remember, London is not England! Try to visit different places during your time here. Getting exposed to our huge variety of accents is the best way to improve your English!
