Hi, this is Federica, student services intern at EC London!
This week I would like to talk about what students use to do during their first day at EC London.
Students come early in the morning as well as teachers and employee. We give to the students welcome packs and tell them where they have to go to do the entrance test. People who work in the reception register their Visa, Passaport and make ID cards for the new students. They will have the Welcome Talk in which my colleague tells them the rules of our school.
After lessons, student have to do the Welcome Walk. They have a sheet with some questions about the places inside the school and outside, so that they learn them well. For example we ask about the code to open the door of the stairs, or something about the statue outside st. Pancras station, and other things regarding King’s Cross Station, the British Library and so on.So they follow an itinerary up to the Somers Town Coffee House, the melting pot where I have to wait all the students there, sit and chat with them. It is a pub located near the school with some seats even outside. That’s why it’s a good place to enjoy the nice summer weather in London.
That is a good chance to speak about the Social Programme of the week and know each other better. In addition, It’s a good way to make friends. I met so many nice people who enjoyed me and my colleague Alberto to the Karaoke Night. From that day we became close to each other. That’s why it’s an experience I will never forget!
