I was working at Crest Schools of English as a work experience intern. My internship was for the duration of 6 weeks. I arrived in London at the beginning of December, so I was going to pass Christmas time and New Year’s here in London. Staff from Crest Schools welcomed me very nicely. I was getting used to the British accent and also learning a lot of new things at work. We had a nice Christmas Party for our students with an International Cuisine Day included. I saw the magic atmosphere of Christmas everywhere. I decided to visit some nice and famous Christmas markets in London. People recommended Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park and also Southbank Centre Christmas Market close to the London Eye. In Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, there were plenty of things to see and many entertainment opportunities. When I saw the happy faces of the people there, I could see that they were really enjoying their time there. After Christmas, New Year’s Eve came. I was thinking about a nice spot to see midnight fireworks at the London Eye. I decided for a river side, close to Waterloo station. It was the same idea as many other people, so it took me some time before I found a good spot to have a nice view. The midnight firework was incredibly beautiful. With a background of music, it was an amazing experience that I will keep in my memory for a long time. After the New Year began, the school opened to welcome our current and new students. It was a time to start the new school year with various courses of English and other options that Crest Schools of English offers. A lot of new students came to our school to have their courses and enjoy the time in London. Crest Schools offers to students many ways of learning English through entertainment also. Students can participate in the social programme, what could be very nice option to make new friends and have a fun while exploring London city. All can join easily for free. Students in school are having a really good practising in English. Crest Schools has experienced teachers, who make the students feel comfortable and confidence with their spoken English. I will be always coming back to see what’s new in Crest Schools and also to meet all the people I have known.
