Study English in Chicago

Workers and adventurers from all around the world built this city of towers on the shores of Lake Michigan, and its rich multicultural history is reflected in a constellation of communities, cuisines and musical styles. Dine on Sichuan noodles, Greek meatballs or French cassoulet in the West Loop; check out the colorful murals by Mexican-American artists over in Pilsen, and listen to Chicago’s urban take on the Southern blues at Buddy Guy’s Legends or Kingston Mines.
