I must admit I was worried about living with an strange family in England but fortunately Shan and Andrew were splendid hosts. They were very kind to me and make me feel at home.
Shan prepared me very well for the exams. We didn’t just do exercises of the coursebook, we also read newspaper, a novel and watched films and documentaries.
Wallingford is a beautiful town and near other interesting places. We have visited Henley, many of the Oxford colleges and Dorchester Abbey but my favourite excursion was London.
We read a newspaper article about the poppies at the Tower of London and decided to go and see them. It was an unforgettable and unique experience for me.
The excursions were special because I learned a lot about the history of the places I saw.
I have good memories and a journal full of photographs to remember my stay.
