Celebrating Easter in Britain

Easter is one of the most important events in the Christian calendar because it is the time in which Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ. If you are in London to study an English Course at that time, you will probably see that children have two weeks off school (which include two bank holidays: Good Friday and Easter Monday). Don’t worry; our English School in London remains open for Easter!
During your stay at the English School in London, have a look at the shops and you will see chocolate eggs and hot cross buns that are the symbols of Easter. Traditionally, schools organise eggs hunts: teachers hide small chocolate eggs in the schoolyard and pupils have to find them. Another important tradition for Easter is to eat roast lamb, which is the traditional meat for the main meal on Easter Day.
If you want to come to our English School in London, you should choose the host family accommodation in order to live with them this particular period of the year.

Six Good Reasons to Come to the English School in London

Obviously, there are more than six good reasons to come to our English School in London. We just try to find the six best one to help you to make your final choice. Let’s have a look at these.
Learning English in London is really the best way to improve your language skills but also to experience the English ordinary life. Food, habits and behaviours are part of the cultural set of values you will first discover.
Outside class, our English School in London offers a social programme with a wide range of activities. Indeed, learning a language not only has to do with English courses but also with culture, history and art. London has a lot of attractions, museums, shops and restaurants you will love discovering.
New friends from all over the world… isn’t it exciting to think about all the people you will meet? A stay in the English School in London is a great opportunity to get in touch with young students from Asia, America or Africa and to exchange opinions and cultural features.
Discovery will definitely be the keyword for your stay. London is an amazing and exciting town. It is a perfect mix between modernity (The City, Canary Wharf, etc.) and classicism (Westminster, Tower of London, etc.), excitement (theatres, discos and other restaurants) and tranquillity (parks and gardens).
Other than being qualified and English native-speakers, teachers in the English School in London are approachable and friendly. They do their best to create a good balance between useful class content and developing an enjoyable and relaxed environment in their English lessons.
No doubt that when you go back home and talk about all your unforgettable memories, all your friends will be green with envy!

Attending a Premiere in London’s Leicester Square

London is a city where a lot of celebrities live. It is also one of the most important steps for them to promote their films all around the world. If you like cinema, glitter and evening dresses, there is a place to be in London: Leicester Square.
With the new friends you met at the English School in London, don’t miss the opportunity to get an autograph of your favourite actor. You will probably have to push and shove to reach the barriers but it is worth it. And if you have the chance to get a ticket to see the movie, don’t forget your camera… You will walk on the red carpet under the photographs’ flashes and spotlights. It is just an unforgettable moment in a lifetime.
Just to give you an idea, yesterday was the premiere of Monsters vs. Aliens in the UK. This animation is about a girl hit by a meteorite which turns her into a giant and changes her life forever. It would be very easy for you to understand everything in the film thanks to the English Courses you study at the English School in London. On the red carpet (which was blue in tribute to one of the monsters of the movie), there were Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde) and Kiefer Sutherland (alias Jack Bauer in 24).
You should really take advantage of your stay at the English School in London to assist a premiere at Leicester Square.
