Living and Working in London-An Intern’s View part 2

Featured

Hello everyone! I am Anh Viet, yes it’s me here again…It has been a few weeks since my last blog entry and, I thought it was time to share a little bit more with you about my experience being an Intern at Tti School of English.
To be honest, my first weeks here were a little bit difficult to follow all the tasks and to understand everything, but thanks to my lovely and patient colleagues I could manage almost everything after a few weeks. The best part is that I am able to improve my English skills every day! Of course, making mistakes is a normal part of life. Taking responsibility and facing up to our mistakes is a great way to learn.
If you have the opportunity to come and study at Tti School of English, I would like to recommend that you join the Social Programme. It is a great way to make a lot of new friends and continuing practising outside the classroom. At the same time, you can explore London and get to know more about this multicultural and diverse city.
One of my favourite activities was the International Food Evening. Everyone got the chance to bring different dishes from their countries and we shared them together in the Study Lounge. It was a very fun night!

In my previous blog, I mentioned to you that I went to a lot of places, for example, we went to Oxford with other Tti students. It is just 90 minutes by bus from London. The city is completely different and has a very charming atmosphere. We discovered all the Harry Potter filming locations and left a message in the Christ Church Cathedral visitors’ book! #TtiSpirit

The number of amazing places in London is endless! I have visited Kew Garden, Windsor Castle, Hampton Court Palace and many other famous locations in London, but I’m still not done yet.
IMG_5034 (1)
Pubs are one of the best places in the UK to hang out with friends and we do it at least once a week! You have the opportunity to interact with native speakers and learn lots of useful expressions, slang, phrasal verbs, it all about discovering how to talk like a real Londoner.
The vibrant location of the school, in the middle of Camden Town, offers you plenty of different and affordable pubs, even if you do not drink alcohol, you can have an unforgettable moment. Cheers!

That’s all for now, I hope I gave you a positive impression about my life here in London as an Intern at Tti School of English. If you have any question at all, or you are thinking about coming to London, please ask me or one of the members of the staff, we are here to support you. Thanks for reading my blog!

Thanks so much, Anh Viet! To find out more about our school please visit www.ttischool.com

Rooftop Bars and Cinemas in London

Featured

Contrary to Game of Thrones “Summer is coming”, and as someone who might not like being inside all the time and may also like to go out for a drink or to see a film, I thought about giving you some ideas about rooftop bars and cinemas to visit in London over the warmer months!

Queen of Hoxton – Rooftop Bar and Cinema in Shoreditch

Queen of Hoxton

The Queen of Hoxton is one of the most famous clubs in Shoreditch. I myself have been there a few times now and always had a perfectly good time. While the drinks may not be the cheapest in London they don’t make that big of a dent in one’s finances either. The club itself has two floors + the rooftop bar and all of them play different kinds of music so there should be a floor with good music for everyone. The rooftop cinema usually has screenings from Sunday to Tuesday at 9 pm starting at the beginning of May.
Where: Queen of Hoxton, 1-5 Curtain Road, London EC2A 3JX

Roof East – Rooftop Bar and Cinema in Stratford

Roof East

This season, Londoners can get an extra helping of fun as Roof East opens its doors earlier than ever before. It’s an explosion of brightly coloured backdrops, quirky visuals and non-stop fun- every Instagrammer’s dream- all teamed with a selection of delectable drinks and an assortment of the best rooftop games around (including Curling, Bowling, Shuffling, Cornhole, Jenga, Table Tennis, Foosball or Table-top Curling and many more). The rooftop cinema screenings usually happen from Tuesday to Sunday at 8.30 pm starting at the beginning of May.
Where: Roof East, 45a Broadway, London E15 1XD

Bussey Building – Rooftop Bar and Cinema in Peckham

Bussey Building

Perched atop the iconic Bussey Building, Bussey Rooftop Bar literally stands above the rest as the highest drinking hot spot in Peckham, offering delicious cocktails, seasonal bites and unrivalled 360-degree views of London’s dazzling skyline. Screenings at the rooftop cinema can usually be attended from Tuesday to Sunday at 8.30 pm starting at the beginning of May.
Where: Bussey Building, 133 Rye Ln, London, SE15 4ST

Prince of Wales – Rooftop Bar in Brixton

Prince of Wales

The Prince of Wales pub & POW forms a large music venue with two-tier outdoor roof terrace in Brixton. A great location for late night drinking and dancing.
“The best outdoor terrace in London’ you’ll find the sounds of sunset then the night – every weekend!” says Time Out Magazine.
Where: The Prince of Wales & POW, 467-469 Brixton Road, London, SW9 8HH

Sky Garden – Botanic Garden high above the City of London

Sky Garden

While this is not exactly a rooftop bar because it’s not on top of the roof, Sky Garden has a fantastic view over the London skyline being located on the 35th floor of 20 Fenchurch Street Building. Enjoy yourself and some drinks in this botanical garden high above all the noise of the City of London. I would recommend booking a time slot in advance. Visiting is always free but with a booked time slots (which also costs nothing) so you can be sure that they let you in as only a certain amount of people can be up there at a time.
Where: Sky Garden, 20 Fenchurch St, London EC3M 8AF

The Garden at 120

Last but not least, The Garden at 120 a new addition to the crayon box. A new mid-level roof garden on Fenchurch Street. This suspended pocket park lives 15 floors high, atop One Fen Court. And the best bit? It’s completely free. No pre-booking necessary, just turn up and ride the lift up.

office-09

The roof garden offers 360-degree views, but as it’s only 15 floors high, some pesky neighbouring skyscrapers are unfortunately in the way.

The-Garden-At-120-e1550242189820

Where: 10 Fenchurch Avenue, EC3M 5BN. Nearest stations are Aldgate and Monument.

Summer opening times: between 1 April – 30 September (Monday to Friday 10:00hrs – 21:00hrs). Winter opening times: between 1 October – 31 March (Monday to Friday 10:00hrs – 18:30hrs).
