Patricia: My experience so far.

The journey has been great. You learn a lot of English in class and during the activities and you also meet new people. The weather is nice, sometimes as hot as Spain!

People here are lovely and my host family is adorable. I’ve been so lucky. We’re doing activities all the time. You can’t get bored and we visit interesting places too. It’s a great experience. If you do it, you’ll have a great time too.

El viaje ha sido genial. Te aprendes mucho inglés en clase, durante las actividades y también puedes conocer gente nueva. El tiempo es agradable, a veces tan caliente como España!

Aquí la gente es encantadora y mi familia es adorable. He sido tan afortunado. Estamos haciendo actividades todo el tiempo. No puedes aburrirse y visitamos lugares interesantes también. Es una gran experiencia. Si lo haces, tendrás una gran experiencia también.

London: Natural History Museum

On Sunday we went to London. First we visited the Natural History Museum. We started in the Dinosaur Galleries. We saw the skull of Tyranasaurus Rex (T Rex) and other skeletons from over 300 millions years ago.

Winchester and the Round Table

After Avebury, we visited the ancient city of Winchester. IMG_0243

Winchester was the capital of England over 1000 years ago. We visited the cathedral and the tomb of Jane Austen, the famous 19th century author. Patricia (above) knew the titles of some her books.

 

Later we visted the remains of Winchester Castle now called the Great Hall.

The castle was mainy destroyed in the English Civil War by the republican army of Oliver Cromwell.

In the Great Hall hangs a huge round table which has connections with the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. The table has been hanging on the wall for over 500 years!
