First few days living in London


This summer, I join a summer program which is a IELTS preparation course at Middlesex University. I tried writing in English few times before but it wasn’t very useful, as I lost the habit after back to Hong Kong. By taking the opportunity that school requires me to write an after-trip journal, I will start to write a post per two days.

My homestay family wasn’t very wonderful at first if compare to others. It was far away from school and from Central London. Three people came from the same uni living in one host is the biggest difficulty because we spoke Cantonese all the time, therefore I requested to change my host.

The second host family is slightly better because I can talk in English in most of the time so that train my speaking skills. Everything is fine except my room size and the amount of food. The local bus system is also confusing because it takes long time to wait between schedules.

Before the school get started, there are schedule of Central London guide tours for students to get familiar with this wonderful city. We visited London of Eye, Tower Bridge, London Bridge and landmarks in Greenwich. My spoken become more fluent after coming here few days, hope can keep improving fastly.
