London has been an emotional trip, a mix of experiences and emotions that I’m sure has involved everyone. Everyone had his or her moment in this trip, it could be shopping, flying for their first time, or finding themselves emotionally touched. The way that trip is planned makes it impossible for you to get bored, and you will be surrounded by your friends and new people.
Families were criticised, I’m not going to lie, but in my personal case, I had good times with Sally, my hostess. She was very interesting but she wasn’t the best chef. It’s UK, I was expecting that.
The planning was perfectly thought. All days were special and full of activities, and most of us agree that Aladdin’s musical was the best part of the trip. All the planning plus the free time you have to discover London on you own makes this trip highly recommended. I hope that if you have the option to travel next year in this trip, you do it.
This year our English Department school trip has led us to Dublin, where a group of 30 students from 4th ESO and 1st Batx had a wonderful experience. We loved Dublin and the welcoming and easy-going Irish people. We visited several interesting sites and museums, such as Malahide Castle, or Dublinia, where we could learn about Vikings and the Medieval Dublin, or the replica of the ship Jeanie Johnston, where we were taught about the Famine that took place between 1845 and 1852 and the subsequent emigration to America. It was a very good trip we will always remember!
Here we are again planning our school trip to an English speaking country, this year to Ireland! This is a great opportunity for our students to live the culture and practice the language they are learning in class. We are going to stay with Irish families and will spend five days touring Dublin and its surroundings. We hope many of you in 4ESO and 1Batx can come along and take advantage of this experience. We will be posting all the information here.

Getting to know a foreign language implies knowing a new culture too. To be able to do so, travelling to the foreign country helps a lot! This year a group of 4ESO and 1st Batx students had an awesome trip to London from March 21st-25th. We stayed with British homestay families and visited the most famous sites in the city including the British Museum, the Museum of Natural History, Madame Tussaud’s, London Eye, Buckingham Palace, The Tower of London, Covent Garden and Camden Town. In spite of the tragic terrorist attack on London Bridge, we had a peaceful and pleasant stay. We also had the opportunity to attend a musical for the first time during our shool trip, Wicked, which we enjoyed greatly. We spent the last day in Oxford, where we visited Christ Church College, where the Harry Potter film producers got the inspiration for recreating some locations at Hogwarts. It was a good experience that we hope to repeat next year!
