Bristol Language Centre welcomes slapstick comedians from across the globe.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The college is proud of its links with its historic city and the local community, and determined to play its part in Bristol's rise to the status of UK super-city. Over the past decade Bristol has become a hub for high tech engineering and digital businesses. It has also become a major cultural destination, and host to international arts events and festivals. This month Bristol Language Centre welcomes the return of the Bristol Slapstick Festival celebrating silent comedy.
Bristol Language Centre is located in the Redcliffe area of Bristol, just a few minutes’ walk from the major city cinemas taking part in the in this year's, eighth slapstick festival. The opportunity to take part in events, talks and film showings will enhance the already packed social event diary of the college and its international students, who come from across the world to study at the Bristol Language College. As a social programme coordinator Gavin says, “Silent comedy is the perfect medium to unite all our students. It doesn't matter what other languages you speak, everyone can have a laugh with silent comedy.”
International students choose Bristol as the city in which to study English as a foreign language for a variety of personal and professional reasons. For some it is the city's social life, for others with academic aspirations it is the two universities that appeal. All students benefit from the affordability of Bristol as a city in which to study – accommodation and living costs are a fraction of the cost of studying in London.
Apart from the city of Bristol itself, one of the notable things about the Bristol Language Centre is its lively mix of student ages and interests. Experienced business professionals can choose Bristol evening classes or daytime courses in General English or Business English courses, to fit around work commitments. Students who wish to apply for university in the UK benefit from lots of advice and support and a foundation programme UK universities recognise.
