Hi there! This is Bego. I came to London to improve my English with a view to staying here for a couple of months and here I am after more than 2 years!
This week, Tti students and staff joined together on the comfty couches to enjoy some international snacks and the figure skating on the big screen TV in the study lounge!
Prince played a surprise gig in Camden Town and our D.O.S and resident Prince fanatic, Camilla Harrison , tells us all about it!
I was in a very old fashioned house in the centre of London. From an outside view it seems something special because around it there are only new buildings. We can imagine a house which doesn’t belong to this age: effectively I’m talking about Johnson’s house. You’re thinking who [is] this Mr. Johnson is: the Johnson’s surname is very common in England. Nevertheless, this Mr. Johnson is very famous: he was the first writer of a common English dictionary, called “A Dictionary of the English Language”.
As they await their results with trepidation, we spoke to three of our former CAE students to get their opinions on studying in England and hopefully to give us a few tips in the process!
Above all, I would like to tell you what made me come and study English in England and why I decided to come to Tti. I had been dreaming of coming and living in foreign country since I was a little girl, like, nine-year-old. Japan is an island country surrounded by ocean, as you know, so there is no opportunity to speak English and communicate to foreigners whatsoever. So I was strongly feeling that I really need to go out of here and learn English.
Anyone who knows me knows how much I LOVE all things Roman! So, when a student of mine told me that there is a Roman Amphitheatre under the Guildhall Art Gallery I nearly screamed with excitement! I immediately added it to the Social Programme calendar for October and we headed down to Moorgate station to go discover London’s ancient past. It was absolutely wonderful!
