Hi! My name is Illya. I am 12 years old and from Dnepropetrovsk in Ukraine. I spent two weeks in Margate where I had a good time with the family where I lived. My teacher was Ella, and there was also Jim, Alena, Alexandra and Rosa the dog. I had English lessons four hours in the morning, but not on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday I went to Canterbury, where I saw the big cathedral, the main Cathedral of all England!
Then I saw the room in a house where the ghosts of little children are. I also went to the Canterbury Museum. It was fun!
On Sunday I went to Dover Castle and spent a whole day there.
I saw the tunnels where soldiers lived who were going to fight Napoleon, and the military hospital used in the last war. I also visited castles in the towns of Deal and Walmer on the sea. I liked Walmer Castle most, because it has a beautiful garden.
I played mini-golf and snooker. When I played mini-golf I threw my ball into a pool and had to save it from there. 🙂
I watched a lot of films at home, like The Dark Knight Rises and She’s the Man. In the cinema I saw Monsters’ University. I really liked mini-golf. I saw some papers of Leonardo da Vinci in the Turner Gallery in Margate; when I got home I started to read a book about Leonardo in English. Ella took me to see the Shell Grotto, a strange place, the walls are lined with millions of shells. I went swimming in a swimming pool – not in the sea, because it was too cold for me.
My English has got better, and I want to come again.
