The best places to improve your English skills while living abroad
April 3, 2017
English is most probably our first foreign language, but let’s admit it, it is always hard to master a language like a native! If you have being offered the opportunity of relocating, why not move to a country where you can also improve your English? Here is a list of the top English-speaking destinations for expats – excluding the US – based on the last Expat Insider survey from Internations.
Looking into Asia?
If you would like to move to Asia for your relocation, but still speak in English, Singapore should be one of your top destinations. As a Commonwealth country with English among its official languages, Singapore is a unique place if you are planning to live in a secure and multicultural environment. 100% of the expats surveyed gave positive feedback regarding personal safety. And, if you are concerned about economics, 86% of the expats rate it positively!
If climate is a key element in your destination choice, then the island country of Malta should be at the top of your list. Expats located there are extremely satisfied with their choice, and not only for the weather but also for the high quality of life, the ease of settling in and the local prices, which allow you to keep your personal finances in good shape!
Working but also living!
If work-life balance is a top priority for you, then we recommend you move a little bit further towards the south-east…. Precisely to New Zealand! Moving to New Zealand will allow you to enjoy your free time, as among the English-speaking countries, people living in “le pays des kiwis” work on average 42.2 hours per week. And what better way is there to enjoy your evenings and weekends than surrounded by nature? New Zealand has an impressive landscape with a vast diversity of wildlife, and this is something that current expats highly appreciate: 95% of them rate the quality of the environment positively
