I have had 2 fun weeks in Poole. I stayed with Jayne and Matin Jackson and their baby daughter Ariya. We saw ‘Cats’ the musical, went shopping in Poole, Castlepoint and Bournemouth and visited Salisbury and Stone Henge as well as other things.I had classes were well I learned many new words. The food was delicious. It was pretty fun because we went on interesting trips. I particularly enjoyed my birthday which I spent in London. I was given a cake at home. The family are lovely and they have creatures such as 2 cats, a dog and 2 turtles. The room was quite comfortable. The house is nice and spacious. I really liked the sea, the beach and the time I spent there. I also really liked the concert Cats, I received many wonderful memories.
My name is Andrey and I am a 15 year old Russian student. I went to Poole in August and was there till the 31st of August. It was a very nice month! on fourth of August my, new family met me at their house near to the sea shore, they were very friendly and asked me about how I felt every hour, that was quite annoying, but that is much better than if they didn’t ask me at all. The next day my adventures started. We went to the sea on the boat and spent a lot of time on it. There was a yacht club near their house, so I saw lots of different boats and the whole harbour from their boat called “Lazy bones” It is a very nice boat with engine, but also a jib and a mainsail. After that trip Jenny(My teacher) told me all the words which described the boat and the sea. The next day we went, as I remember, along the beach for 7 kilometres and that was great, of course after that I knew all the words describing beaches, fields and mountains. There were a lot of interesting trips nearly every days, so I enjoyed them a lot and expanded my vocabulary! We went on bikes for a long trips and that was great! I played table tennis with other boys, usually lost, but that was great too because I love nearly all the games. I also played rounders and swam in the sea. There were a lot of exciting things, like picking mulberries, so I climbed up the tree and collected the best ones, while Jenny and her friends below.I didn’t have a box to collect those berries so I threw them into Jenny’s box and sometimes they squeezed and mulberry juice flew everywhere. After picking we were all covered in juice, we were like from the slaughter house because the juice was bright red! And without washing we went to a supermarket…. Everyone looked at us carefully! We also went to some shows, an Agricultural show called the Melplash show. It was my first trip to England and the first trip alone. I liked it very much and will come there next year, because it is very good for learning English and its very interesting too!
I really enjoyed these two weeks and it was a great experience to live with a 3-week-old baby. Even though it was sometimes difficult to get her to sleep we did some very exciting trips. I especially liked the “Go-APE” – tree climbing adventure and Splashdown water park, but also general climbing was great.
In addition, we went Shopping a few times in big Shopping Centres and visited some really nice friends. They sometimes had different accents, but at the time I understood almost everything. Other small trips were to an old mansion and to Honeybrook farm. We also went to a Pub Quiz, which was really interesting because I have never seen one before.
All in all it was a great time here.
