I'm back again from Edinburgh. I'm happy but a little sad because I left a wonderful place and a lot of friends there.
In this photo I'm with my General English Teacher, Gavin.
I was in Edinburgh two weeks, studying General English Course in the Edinburgh School of English and my residential accommodation was at the Pollock Hall, a half an hour walking from the Royal Mile.
8.45-9.00: Plenary Session (Susan)
9.00-10.00: Fluency workshop (Jonathan)
10.15-11.15: General English (Gavin)
11.30-13.00: General English (Gavin)
15.15-16.15: Reading and Writing Skills (David)
When I was finishing the classes (at 16.15 h.) I always took a walk around the city until the dinner time (19.30 h. more or less) with some friends, trying to see the city and practice our English (and drink a beer, too,OF COURSE!!!!).
-Positive: The city, the people (very friendly), the students that I meet there (Consoli, Anja, Isidro,Margherita, Nichola, Carlos, etc.) the teachers
-Negative: The weather (always raining), the lunch and dinner hour, and the close hour of Museums
I hope that these days I've have time to write about my experience there.
SONG: This is time to an old band: Simple Minds. The band was in Edinburgh last Saturday (18th of July) but I could not see them because I've got not a ticket.
Simple Minds is a Scottish band (Rock, New Wave & Pop) borned in 1.977 (30 years on the road!!!). His frontman is Jim Kerr
I'll show you two songs: The first one is "Don't You", maybe his most successful hit.
The end of the song (and the concert) is amazing!
The second one is "Belfast Child", based on a traditional irish song called "She moved through the fair" from his album "Street fighting years"
