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.
