September study tour in London
When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford as the famous 18th-century English writer Samuel Johnson once remarked.
In order to check it, two students of English philology at WSZOP (Julita Kalużna and Kamil Smaga) with the teacher Justyna Rusak went on a one-week study tour to London. The time spent in the cosmopolitan capital abounded in valuable experiences: intensive sightseeing, meeting and chatting with newly encountered people, tasting English dishes and immersing oneself in their culture.
We managed to see the major highlights of the city: Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Greenwich, the Tower of London, the National Gallery, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the British Museum, Shakespeare’s Globe, Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace. We had a chance to go on a Thames River Cruise, watch one of Shakespeare’s plays at the Globe, see the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, and have the double-decker-bus ride along Oxford Street and taste traditional English dishes, like fish & chips or Shepherd’s Pie.
Although we had seven days at our disposal, the time passed incredibly quickly. It was a truly educational experience and an unforgettable time for all of us, and we are grateful to the University for offering us such an opportunity.
