As you may already know, last January the students of 2nd course of ESO travelled to Westgate (England) to live some lovely days with their mates and teachers, as well as English monitors and families.

The adventure began on Saturday 20th at eight o’clock at the meeting point of Institución. After saying goodbye to their families, they caught the bus to the airport to take the flight to their gorgeous destination.The journey was quick and with no delays, so at the appointed hour everybody met their host families.

On Sunday London awaited, so after a two-hour trip by train they started their sightseeing in a great deal of interesting places like the British Museum,The Thames, with its awesome London Eye and the historical Elizabeth Tower with the Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, 10 Downing Street, the Palace of Whitehall with its Horse Guards, Saint James Park, Buchingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square, where they had lunch. The tour ended up in Covent Garden, where they did some shopping before setting off to Saint Pancras station to take the train back home. At the end of the day everybody felt exhausted but really happy.

Monday was a calmer day, since after attending their first English classes, they had the possibility to carry out an orientation activity along with a photograph contest at the beach, where the weather was sunny, windy and quite cold at the same time. Finally, they had an amusing evening just watching a film.

The following day, after their tuition the students dealt with interesting activities like a drum workshop, where not only did they learn how to play the djembe; but also enjoyed with board games. On Wednesday everybody could show their artistic skills by doing a performance on a stage,dressed up in a wide range of costumes, with previous rehearsals and above all, having fun. The evening came to an end listening to music and dancing at a “disco”.

The day before leaving, everybody spent the afternoon in the medieval city of Canterbury where they couldn’t visit its dazzling cathedral due to maintenance works; however, they devoted the time to stroll, take pictures and do some shopping. Afterwards,they had the chance to show their knowledge about music during a contest arranged at the charming Carlton Cinema. On Friday both students and teachers headed for Spain.

We are really grateful to those who have made possible this unforgettable experience.
