This September the seventh class 7.A and some pupils from the eighth classes went to a region in England that is called Cornwall. We spent there almost two weeks. We stayed there in local families in a town called St Austell. At the beginning we were a little bit worried in which family we would live and if we understand them but they all were really nice to us, so there weren´t any problems.
We went to an English school every morning for four days. There we learned something about the Cornish history and culture. We also learned some new English games and songs, so we had fun as well. In the afternoons we always went for trips around Cornwall (sometimes also Devon) and we visited some famous places like Tintagel – the castle of King Arthur, the Eden project, Truro – the capital of Cornwall and many other interesting places. We normally came home to our host families at around 7 o’clock in the evening. Our dinner was usually ready at that time. While we were eating and also after the dinner we could talk with our families. We also watched the X factor UK with them. That was really fun.
An the end of the English course we all got certificates with our level of English and an evaluation from the teachers. For the rest of the stay we had the whole-day trips, so we had more time to go shopping, play on the local playgrounds (the English playgrounds are the best J) and see other interesting places. One of my favourite part of this trip was, when we went to the beach. We threw stones to the sea and simply enjoyed the fresh wind and sound of the waves and seagulls. The best place we visited was the fun park of Flambards. There were really cool roller-coasters and huge slides.
