Students Experience Real London With St George International
Released on: August 03, 2011, 3:56 pm
Language students attending St George International (SGI) school have been getting a taste of the real London in a series of guided cultural visits throughout the capital.
Staff at St George International (SGI) have taken advantage of
the school’s enviable location between Oxford Street and Regent Street
by organising outings for students to see some of the city’s festivals,
events and attractions.
As one of the world’s great multicultural cities, London has a lot to offer language
students studying St Georges German courses, as well as
its Spanish, French and Italian programmes. SGI’s busy social programmers aim to
ensure that students are able to enrich their learning by making new friends and
absorbing new experiences.
This summer has been no exception, with a new group of Spanish teachers making the
most of the 32C weather with a walking tour of the city. In a single week,
meandering student groups visited the Tate Modern, a photo exhibition at the Museum
of London, the Tower of London, the National Gallery, the British Museum, took a
relaxing boat trip on the Thames and stopped for afternoon tea at Brown’s in St
Student accommodation is all based in central London and allows students the chance
to do some extra exploring with their new-found friends outside of school.
Accommodation options include home stays, hotels, student residences and executive
Some students prefer to immerse themselves in the host culture by staying in family
homes, all of which are inspected and selected by SGI according to strict criteria.
Students seeking more independence and a chance to meet other students may go for
one of the SGI-approved student residences. SGI also has a number of partner hotels
and executive apartments in and around central London.
The staff at SGI can help with specific accommodation requests. For example, for
students receiving Italian lessons London accommodation near Little Italy – a nickname applied to the western side of
Clerkenwell, which has strong Italian connections that go back more than two
centuries – might make for a more rewarding experience.
