Hastings: Learning by doing-speaking


We stayed in Hastings for one week. Hastings is a town in England. Sabrina and I stayed at a big family. They have six little children. There were also two other students from Italy in this family. The time in England was so nice. We saw a lot. Every morning we had lessons and in the afternoon we had excursions. On two evenings there was a disco party in the school. The greatest day was the day in London. There are so many interesting places to see. We visited Madame Tussaud’s and made a walking tour to Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. Then we had some freetime to go shopping.

I think the trip was fantastic because we could practise our English and we saw another country. When I’m older I will visit London again.


 Our host family was very friendly. We had a lot of fun. We often went to the sea. In the evening we had a disco party in the school.

It was really great. We were dancing with some Italian girls. The day in London was fantastic. We visited Madame Tussaud’s where we could admire many famous people.

 In this week we stayed at a host family. Our host father picked us up from the school when we arrived. He was nice to us but we had to carry our suitcase by ourselves. And it was very heavy. The next day we had to get up at 8.00, then we had breakfast and after breakfast we had to go to school. It started at 9.15. On the first we had a small test, then we had lessons until midday. After school a guide showed us Hastings Castle                                 Julia

 We stayed in Hasting which is a small town on the coast of England. Pairs of two children lived at host families. They live near the language school. The weather was cold and windy most of the time.

School started at 9.15 and ended at 12.30 every day. On Thursday we had school until five o’clock. At midday we always had lunch at school. In the afternoon we had some excursions.

On Friday we were in London and went to Madame Tussaud*s.

It was a great trip and we had a lot of fun this week.                                   Tanja and Aida

 I stayed with Michael at a family from India. .They’ve two children. The meals were very good but on the last two days they weren’t so good. Our teacher was very cool; his name was Peter. In the lessons we played some games or we talked to one another. In the evening we had a disco party in the school. We also made a walking tour through Hastings. It was very cool.                                                                                                   Kevin

 Our teacher was very funny and crazy. The lessons in England were great and we learned a lot in English grammar. We stayed at a host family. We shared the room with a fourteen year old boy. In the evening we sometimes went to the beach with our friends. It was great fun.

 We saw a lot of sights and it was very interesting for me. When we arrived in Hastings we saw many red-brick houses. We saw the sea on the first day. It was very cold but the weather was wonderful. We had a great view over the town when we were at Hastings Castle. I think the day in London was the best because we saw many famous sights.

Our host family was very friendly but it was not very clean.

We were shopping very often. There were very great shops with very pretty things to buy. I loved the time in England a lot.                                                                                    Lisa

 When we arrived in Hastings our host father picked us up. We stayed in a detached house in Metthews Garden. In the house there were a lot of toys. Our room was okay. The weather was a little bit cold but one day it was sunny and warm. In the morning we got up at 8 o’clock. At 9 o’clock we went to school. It took us about 15 minutes. On Monday afternoon we went through the old town in Hastings. Our guide told us a lot about the history of Hastings.
