Today we have spent our last day visiting the city of London. We met at 9 at the usual places and head off to St. Peter’s Cathedral, then we walked to the train station where we took the train to London’s Victoria Station.
Once in London we walked to the Houses of Partiament and the Big Ben, then we had a nice walk along the river Thames, where we found lots of different street performers. It has been a very crowded day in London as it was a blank holiday weekend, we were amazed by the amount of people that visit this city everyday.
We walked across one of the bridges to get to our next destination, trafalgar square, where the National gallery is. We couldn’t get into the square because there was an Hindi festival going on, and it was closed to the general public. So we head off to Leicester Square, where we found one of our favourites shops, the m&m’s Shop!! We couldn’t resist and had to get in, to buy some of its chocolates and some souvenirs.
From there we had some more shopping time in Covern Garden, one of the most popular squares in London. And then we walked to the Royal palace, to finally go back to the Station to get the train back to Brighton.
It has been an amazing day, and we all had great fun!
Tomorrow we are going back to Spain and to our families, I’m sure that we are all going to remember this as a great experience for the rest of our lives.
Time runs so fast when you are having a good time. We are getting to the end of our immersion week and the overall feeling is fantastic, we love being here, learning new things and visiting amazing places.
Yesterday we did some sports at school and then we had a conversation lesson with a group of Thai students that are spending some time in Brighton.
In the afternoon, we visited the historical town of Lewes, this place is famous for its ancient castle, the house of Anne of cleves, one of the many wifes of Henry VIII, and England’s oldest book shop dated from the XIII century. We had a lovely walk through the town and visited the ruins of the Priory. Then we had some free time to explore the town’s square and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate. We love cakes and chocolate here! ❤️
Today it was the last day with our English teacher and we got our course certificates. In the afternoon we have gone bowling, it was the first time for some of us, but we did pretty well and we had lots of fun.🎳👍🏻
Tomorrow we are visiting the city of London, can’t wait!💂🏻♀️💂🏻💂🏻♀️💂🏻
Yesterday we had one of the most exciting days so far. We had the chance to visit the Seven Sisters chalk cliffs, one of Britain’s finest unspoilt coastlines. After a long and steepy walk over the hill, we finally reached the top of the cliff and enjoyed the stunning views.
Today we had our lessons in the morning with our teacher and one hour of immersion in the cooking class, where we’ve practiced our food and cooking vocabulary playing a game with some of the English students.
The plan for today’s afternoon was to go to Preston park and play some games, but unfortunately the weather hasn’t been that good and we had some «showers», as English people call the sudden heavy rain. So we stayed in the school playing fooball, basket and cricket and then went to explore the city centre and its shops.
It seems like tomorrow the weather is going to be pretty good, just perfect for our excursion to Lewes!
Today it was our first day attending a British school. Things are a little bit different here, kids have to be in class at 8.50 for registration, and lessons finish at 3.00 pm. Pupils have to move from one class to another, and teachers have their own classrooms, so we got to see most of the school today.
We had our first immersion lesson today and went to English lessons with English students, they taught us a bit of the English sounds and phonics, we also had the chance to speak to different students and get to know them better.
After lunch, which was at 12.00, we went to a nearby school to join in a Spanish lesson, Mr. Gardner prepared a speed dating activity. Kids were moving around some groups with English students, they had to ask questions to them in Spanish and our kids had to answer back in English. They enjoyed it very much! a great way of having them using the language.
After a long day at school we went into the city centre to complete a quiz about English culture, our group leader, Jake, gave us a set of questions to complete by asking the locals. They were surprised by how kind, helpful and friendly Brighton’s people are.
After that we went back to our houses, to relax and spend some time with our families.
Our kids are already enjoying Brighton’s adventure in England. After an early flight to London, a mini bus took us all to the beautiful city of Brighton in which we continued our day enjoying a lovely walk into the city centre, visiting the city’s most iconic places such as: Old Lane, North lane, the Royal Pavilion and the amazing Brighton Pier right next to the beach.
After that we all went back to school, where all our families were waiting to welcome us. They were all really excited about meeting their families and getting a step into the real British life.
We are looking forward for tomorrow!!
