    Manchester is a fascinating place and has an interesting history, I can give you a tour of the city and show you around the interesting areas. I live 3.5 miles from the city centre. We have a train station which is only five minutes walk from my home and two minutes to the bus stop. The peak district is 30 mins drive away so if you love the outdoors we are not to far from the mountains and hills.
    I would be happy to show you around at the weekends. We have had many students stay with us to learn English from Japan, Mexico, Korea, China, France, Spain, Italy.

    The area where my home is has a real great Community and are trying to set up a cycling art café through crowd funding. We have a wonderful local market that sells organic food and cooked food from different Parts of the world.Its a very popular place for the community in Levenshulme Manchester is very multi cultural and is very diverse, thats why it attracts students from all over the world. If you love film and theatre, Manchester has great film and Art festivals.

    I wish to offer a great experience for anyone wishing to experience life in Manchester and the beautiful countryside around Manchester.
