An extraordinary week in Margate

We are Augustin and Philppe, aged 11 and 10, from Brussels. We spent one week with Ella, Jim, Alexandra and Betsy the dog in Margate. We arrived at Ashford Station, and Ella drove us to Margate. For the rest of the day we played Jocari in the garden. Then our lessons stared on Monday. We had our breakfast at 8am, and our work began at 9. We had three hours of lessons every mornng, with two breaks of fifteen minutes each. Every lesson began with a warm-up game, then we worked on grammar and new words, corrected our homework and played more language games. In the afternoons we did different activities. It was raining very hard on the first day, so we went to the swimming pool. On the next day we played badminton. Wednesday was a sunny day, so we went to visit Dover Castle. It’s a really huge castle with secret wartime tunnels and the Great Tower. We saw two more castles on the fourth day – in Deal and Walmer. Walmer Castle has a pretty garden with giant games to play. Friday was the last day of lessons – so no homework!! Every evening we chose a film to watch, like Madagascar, How to Train your Dragon and Kung-Fu Panda.

We learned a lot of grammar, like present simple and continuous, the same for the past, and the present perfect. We enjoyed ourselves, and ate well – the food was very, very good.
