Have you been to London? Did you like it? What do you know - or think - about London?


Language level

Intermediate: B1


I went to London one year ago and I think it's an amazing city. I did sightseeing all day and I visited all main places of London, I guess. I went to London eye, Big Ben, Bridge Tower, Natural History Museum. It was a little difficult to me going on the underground, it got me confused hehe. I loved being in London, unfortunately I didn't have much time to do other things like visit some castle and the real life in the countryside. I ate fish and chips, they're great! I hope I can travel there as soon as I can.

I really love and when I have always wanted to visit London one day. I will eat British food and enjoy visiting beautiful places. And of course, I also want to see Big Ben towel too. It's very beautiful and one of wonders of the world.

Hello everyone. So, I don't understand one things, the first tower was destroyed in 1834, and tit took 36 years to build the new one, and finished in 1859, but 1834 + 36 = 1870 then what does it mean when you say "finished in 1859"???

Hello Edyanglo,

I'm sorry, I couldn't find anywhere in the podcast where they talked about the tower being destroyed in 1834. Could you please tell me at what time in the audio they mentioned this?

Or you might find the answer to your problem in the Wikipedia.

All the best,

Hi everyone!!! I have never been in London, but i want to go :) I'm a doing a master degree in Germany then London is very close. I'm thinking of going to London in February -netxt year- and take English Class for two weeks. I need to improve my English speaking and listening skills.

Unfortunately, I haven't done the exercises really good.

I've never been to London, but I would really like to visit it.
What about London I know? Hmm... London was destroyed three times in the past.
And everything I heard or read about London is really interesting for me, and I would
use the oportunity to see as much as I can, of course if I would have oportunity to visit London at all.

When I thinking about London first thing that I remember is London Eye. I was in London twice and I visited a lot of sights, the wax museum Madame Thuso, cathedral St.Paul's, London Eye and lots of other places. But the most thing that I enjoyed was boat ride from one part of London to another. And of course the sight from the London Eye was awesome, and after that I saw one 4D movie about the London Eye. I think London is a great city with a lot of places to visit and a lot of things to do you can find all kind of activites, even if you are on holiday or you live there.

Hello everyone from Brazil.
I've never been to London, but I'd like to go there a lot! I have a British friend who lived in Londn and he's told me great stories from there. I know that London receives tourists from every part of the world and it would be great to be there and experience the mixture of all those people. In fact, living any experience from London would be awesome, even the weather! As a post-graduation student, one of the things I really like to know in London is its universities. I know some of the best universities are there. And as a rock and roll fan, I'd love to be there and feel the atmosphere of a place which has produced great rock n' roll bands.

Sorry i wrote Teach instead of Team.
