MY UNKNOWN ENGLAND
21.06 I’m in the UK. My teacher Beverley met me at the airport. This is my forth time here.
I like Beverley because she is professional and devotes all her time to her students.
The first time we stayed in the hotel not to far from the airport.
My English lessons started as soon as I arrived in the UK.
22.06 The next day we went to Wales by train. It seemed to me the journey was not to long and we arrived there in two hours. Our apartment was located on a picturesque bank of the river, there were many swans and people canoeing. In Wales there were a lot of seagulls they were noisy and squawked the hole day and night, it was really terrible.
23.06 At the beginning , we walked around the town. It was quite pretty. There were a lot of people in the main square. They sat in restaurants, went for a walk , went boating, chattered and laughed.
24.06 We had a short boat trip on the river too. I discovered that in Wales are many very interesting and beautiful ancient castles. we visited three of them at least. To be honest , it was unforgettable.
25.06 One of them the oldest castle in England. It’s a beautiful castle. The name of it was Caerphilly Castle.
26.06 Another one belonged to one of the richest man in the world. It was decorated very richly , very cosy and built with love and taste.
27.06 The third one was an ordinary family castle. There were a lot of family portraits, old family furniture. Not far from there was located a small old village. we could see how people had lived before.
28.06 The most interesting trip was to Snowdonia. It took us about five hours to get to there by car. Finally we arrived at a small hotel, spending only one night there. The next day we went to the mountains by an old slow train. I was surprised because it was so picturesque with green hills and there were plenty of sheep’s . It looked very quiet and peaceful. Unfortunately the fog prevented us from seeing the view from the top of the mountain. We took many photos of Snowdonia.
29.06 By the way I had an interesting experience, I to visited an English doctor. I had a problem with my health and I went to a hospital and described my condition to him. I worried about my English , but doctor said that it had been quit understandable.
30.06 The next day we set off to Windsor to see my relatives. It’s a small very agreeable town. We walked around the town and fed the swans. Later we had a diner in a local restaurant.
01.07 We arrived back to London. It’s not the first time in London, so I’ve seen the main sights there. We settled in Primrose hill. I examined the neighbourhood, it was interesting to see local life not through the window of a car.
05.07 We visited the most famous market in Camden town. I can say that it was amusing. I can compare this market with a market somewhere in India or Nepal. There are a lot of small shops. I like stroll about the small shops, to smell aroma of incense sticks, to listen to relaxing music. Then I thought , if I was a designer I would find a lot of interesting ideas there.
06.07 We visited London Eye it was an unforgettable trip , to see London from an altitude so high. It was very exciting.
07.07 That day I visited masseur. I wanted to compare this treatment in England and Russia.
08.07 Every time when I’m in England I go to a cinema . I noticed that I understand English better than the previous year.
11.07 We watched a performance called Mama Mia. I was really impressed . It put me in ad mood. I was glad because I understood almost everything.
12.07 I went to Central London. I walked around. I had a conversation with a foreigner and explained to her how to get to Bond Street. Then went shopping and window shopping after that ,I had lunch in a restaurant . During this time I communicated with people, then took a Cab and went home. All these activity’s my teacher Beverley helped to arrange for me.
Thank you Beverley very much.
