Hello to all my dear EC London 30+ students and to all of our readers!
On the 1st of April, EC London 30+ had the great pleasure of offering to the students a new activity: “Westminster Tour”.
Once again, this activity was a way for our students to learn more about the UK. As well as acquiring English vocabulary and strengthening bonds between students.
At 6:30 pm, students and EC London staff met the guide Karan, at Parliament Square.
As a first step, Karan introduced himself so did each student. After that, we got an introduction of the surrounding buildings and their main functions.
The Parliament Square Garden was overcrowded with protesters and reporters due to the controversial Brexit.
After some pictures of the outside of parliament, we finally entered in the heart of UK’s legislature: the Houses of Parliament!
Unfortunately, we were not able to get into the House of Common due to an incident that happened a few minutes before.
However, we got the privilege to enter the House of Lords and attend a debate. MPs were debating on Brexit, more precisely about Brexit and Erasmus.
In this hectic and uncertain governmental period, both staff and students were able to get a sneak peek of the behind the scenes.
If you would like as well to Learn English Abroad and take part in this unique adventure, EC London 30+ is undoubtedly the place to be.
