Hello ! My name is Coralie and I’m from France. In August, I spent two weeks in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, living with Daphne and her husband Russ. Daphne is a great teacher and my lessons with her proved very helpful for the preparation of my exam (CAE). During my stay, I had the opportunity to discover Edinburgh which is beautiful and I did many other activities. For example, I went to the Highlands for a couple of days, I went to the cinema, I did some baking et I took part in a traditional Scottish dance class. This trip was one of the best I did in the United Kingdom and thanks to it, I met wonderful people and improved my English as I had hoped.
I’m Coralie and I’m French. For my first linguistic trip, I spent two weeks in Hastings which is a very pretty English city by the seaside.
My roomate Hikari was Japanese so we had the opportunity to learn about life in each other’s country. We discovered that there were many differences between France and Japan.
During these two weeks, I’ve done many things : Hastings and its surroundings offer plenty of opportunities to do many kinds of activities.
Every morning (except the week-end) I had three hours of lessons and in the afternoon, there were excursions.
I visited the towns of Hastings, Bexhill, Brighton, Rye and also the city of London.
I played minigolf, walked along the beach, did some shopping, went to the cinema, made a cake and ate a fish and chips, an English breakfast and a cream tea.
I did some kayaking in the English countryside and I went to kick-boxing and zumba lessons.
So I had a brilliant stay in Hastings, I loved it. My host family was fantastic (very cool and friendly),I also improve my English a lot and I learned new vocabulary every day.
This trip will be a very good memory and now, I want to do another linguistic trip next summer.
