English language schools fear new visa rules

Though the English Riviera may no longer be a huge draw for British
holidaymakers, it is still, nonetheless, a magnet for many foreign
visitors. Every year, English language schools concentrated by the
seaside in places such as Bournemouth, Poole, Eastbourne and Brighton
attract hundreds of thousands of overseas students braving the
unpredictable weather.

It has been estimated that 600,000 people come to the UK to learn
English, bringing £1.5bn to the economy. Just over half of them go on
to more study of some kind, either in further or higher education or
to take professional qualifications.
