This activity is very interesting!

Hi. I am Brazilian and I'll go to Brighton next February for improve my English...Thanks for these topics!
Is anyone planning the same?

Oh my god, I really want to live in LDN, but the currency is the triple of mine, so I need gather loads of money... If I travel with £10,000 I must gather 30,000 to get the total.

I was impressed by their british accent , it's so clear and comprehensible.

Dear all, do you know how I can organise a trip to the UK to watch the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games? (I mean for accomodation, ticket for games, transportation, visa, etc....) I really want to experience shopping in the UK.

Dear Scherif,
You have left it quite late - I think most of the tickets have been sold and the hotels are already booked! I suggest you go to the official ticket website at and check there to see whether there are any tickets for the events you are interested in. Note that there are different ticketing systems depending on which country you are resident in.
