I went to Marrakech in May. We really enjoyed ourselves. This was our first time to Africa and it was really good. The people mainly spoke French so given that neither I nor my boyfriend spoke French it was certainly a challenge – especially in the taxis.
We spent some time in the market Jema El Fena which certainly an experience with monkeys in nappies… and all different types of snakes! We also went camel trekking and that was great.
Is anyone else of on Holiday this year?

The preparation for the Language Student Mini Olympics hit a climax last weekend, with a great day of softball and football. 16 Students from a huge mix of countries and 2 staff played for over 3 and a half hours on Regents Park, honing their skills for the upcoming event. Regents Park didn’t know what had hit it once our softball team was in full swing!
This Saturday 21st is the day we have all been waiting and training for! Meet outside the school at 10:00am, when we will be going to the Language Students Mini Olympics! Good luck to all of you who will be taking part.
EC’s first afternoon trip to Camden was a great success. 14 students walked together up to Camden, which is just 15 minutes from Euston House. Camden is still a hub of punks, goths and rock and rollers, but it has shaken off its poor history and is now an extremely desirable and affluent area. We spent the afternoon looking around all the different markets, trying new food and taking in an alternative area of London. It was a hit with the students and we will be organising another trip very soon.
If you love Queen and want to have fun, come and join us on the 26th July to watch another wonderful musical – We will rock you! Tickets cost £35 for EC students! Lilian
Yesterday we had our first Social Programme trip to the British Library. The British Library is the national library of the United Kingdom, and is the world’s largest library in terms of the total number of items. It holds over 150 million items from many countries, in many languages.
In 1997 the British Library moved into its new purpose-built building at St Pancras – just two minutes away from EC London!
The trip was an instant hit with the students seeing works such as Mozart’s musical diary, Leonardo da Vinci sketches and the Magna Carta.
Following the success of our first trip we will be organising another trip very soon.
