About English

English is a West Germanic language that arose in the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England and spread into what was to become south-east Scotland under the influence of the Anglian medieval kingdom of Northumbria. Following the economic, political, military, scientific, cultural, and colonial influence of Great Britain and the United Kingdom from the 18th century, via the British Empire, and of the United States since the mid-20th century, it has been widely dispersed around the world, become the leading language of international discourse, and has acquired use as lingua franca in many regions. It is widely learned as a second language and used as an official language of the European Union and many Commonwealth countries, as well as in many world organizations. It is the third most natively spoken language in the world, after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.

About Birmingham

Birmingham is a city in the West Midlands, England, and holds the largest population outside of London, in the UK. Developed from a medium-sized market town, Birmingham grew to international prominence during the 18th century, at the heart of the industrial revolution.

Birmingham’s six universities make it the largest centre for higher education outside of London in the country. Birmingham has vibrant and influential grassroots in the art, music, literary and culinary scenes.

Birmingham’s economy today is dominated by the service sector, which in 2012 accounted for 88% of the city’s employment. Birmingham as a settlement dates back to the Anglo-Saxon era, but there is substantial evidence to suggest a short-lived influx of population occurred between 1700BC and 1000BC, this could have possibly been caused due to conflict or immigration in the surrounding areas.

Birmingham is the youngest city in Europe, with under 25’s accounting for nearly 40% of its population. Although a major city during the industrial revolution, Birmingham is home to some 8,000 acres of parks and open space. An estimated 40% of the UK’s jewellery is produced in Birmingham.
