I was wondering if anyone knew the places that have an abundance of language schools and therefore jobs outside of the following...

London
Oxford
Cambridge
Bath
Edinburgh

I have heard Bournemouth, Salisbury, Bristol, Exeter have a few? Can anyone shed some more light on these or any other places not mentioned?

Hi Workingnomad,

I suggest you try towns where there are either universities/colleges or are popular with summer schools, such as:

Brighton
Cardiff (Wales)
Leicester
Leeds
Manchester
Nottingham
Newcastle-on-Tyne
Reading (Berkshire)
York

Most of these places advertise regularly on tefl.com

Good luck!

I think Norwich has quite a few.

Why would you not want to go to Bath? One of the best cities in the world!

Bath - Very expensive, tourist trap town!

I've lived in Bristol most of my life and have never seen any language schools advertised. I think there are some ESL classes at the main college, but that's about it.

Oh yes, and as another poster has said, Manchester is pretty decent.
