• HS London

    Classes, Excursions , and Home-Base

    From April 22nd to April 26thLondon
    We’ll spend from April 22nd to April 26th studying and experiencing  the city of London and its wonderful sights and, in particular, its modern and contemporary art and architecture, together.
    Short classes in the mornings will help us connect more directly with what we see both on our walking tours and in museums.
    Morning classes in the classroom (9:30 – 11:30) will be based on conversation, on readings about what we are going to see that day, and on mini-compositions in which students record their impressions of what they’ve seen in London.
    Informal classes in English conversation continue all day until 7:00 (dinner and relax time!) Everyplace we visit, whether it is St. James’ Park or the British Museum, each student will be asked to say a sentence or two in English about their impressions (don’t worry, staff will help you!).

    Excursions will include: London’s squares, bridges, Tower, but also the Thames River with the experimental Milennium bridge and, of course, London’s wonderful neighbourhoods, The Houses of Parliament, Camden Town, Portobello Road, St Paul’s Cathedral etc…We’ll take a walk through London’s famous Gardens and parks: especially St James (which Virginia Woolf loved and wrote about) but also Hyde Park and Regent’s Park. Last but not least, we’ll visit many museums: The Tate British, Tate Modern, National Gallery, British Museum (several  Museum tours and a wonderful Talk and Draw Session at the National Gallery) and, if we have time, the Courtauld Gallery.

    London home-base: Palmer’s Lodge Hostel, an elegant, renovated Victorian  home.
