– HOW LONG WERE YOU THERE?
We were there for 3 weeks!
– WHO DID YOU LIVE WITH?
We stayed with amazing families who also had kids our age.
– WHAT DID YOU DO IN ENGLAND?
We had a lot of fun! We went to Daneshill School in Basingstoke (Surrey) – it’s a Prep School (1º ESO, 2º ESO). During the week we went to lessons which were 30min to 1hour and, the teachers didn’t move classrooms, but the students did! We studied many, many subjects: Maths, English, Spanish, Latin, History, French, Science, ALS, Geography, Drama, Music, P.E. (boys played football and girls played hockey), Religion, PSHEE, ICT, and Arts!! And on Thursdays we had the choice of sailing, cycling, or rowing!
The first weekend we went to London and the second we went on trips with our families. In London we saw the London Eye and The Tate Modern museum for free! With our families we all did different things. One student went to see the Lion King, Hamley’s (the best toy shop in London!), and Covent Garden for shopping. Other student’s went to Harrod’s, to a football stadium, to Stonehenge, Woodhenge, and AquaDrive!!! Also, some went to Winchester to go shopping, and to Southhampton!
– WHAT DID YOU EAT?
Lots of broccoli! Raw carrots (for a snack! Crazy!). In the school we had lots of fish and chips – and every day we ate cucumbers and peas! If you didn’t like the food that they were serving that day, you could eat Jack Potatoes and beans as the alternative.
We really wish we could’ve stayed longer! We can’t wait for the English students to come here!
