7AC Cambridge: Day 2

City of Ely

We started off our second day in Cambridge with three hours of classes at language school - same as yesterday, the only difference being that today everybody was on time. We talked about the differences between the Austrian and UK education system and learned all about GCSEs and A-levels. Furthermore, we played a number of fun and challenging communication games like “Hot Seat” and “One Minute” to improve fluency as well as our overall speaking skills.

We already feel very comfortable here. Some of us have already tried traditional British foods, like fish ‘n’ chips, scones, porridge, Chelsea Buns and savoury sandwiches at Fitzbillies.

After classes we took a train to Ely, a picturesque city in Cambridgeshire about 25 kilometres northeast of Cambridge. Ely is a cathedral city, which means that despite its rather small size (Ely is the third smallest city in England), it was granted city status by the monarch due to its diocesan cathedral, which was built from 1083 to 1539. Because of its beauty and size Ely Cathedral is the only UK building to be listed as one of the “Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages”. After Ely Cathedral we visited Oliver Cromwell’s house, who lived in Ely between 1638 and 1646, and we also had time to look around the little shops and walk along the riverside, which was really beautiful. We had a lot of fun on this trip and Ely really is a beautiful city. 

Unfortunately, the train back to Cambridge got delayed so we had to wait at the train station for quite some time. When we finally arrived in Cambridge, everyone went home for dinner with their host families or to eat in a restaurant in the city. All in all, it was a very nice day and we really enjoyed it.
