MMS goes to LondonMMS Lhausen goes to London
From Saturday, September 16th until Saturday, September 23rd, 20I7, 27 students and three teachers of the MMS Lamprechtshausen travelled to London for an English project.
We stayed at houses of hostfamilies. We stayed overnight there and got food to eat.
During the week we – the pupils – had three English lessons every morning from Monday to Friday. And in the afternoons we went sightseeing.
It was a great experience and we learned a lot about the English culture and how it is to live in a city with more than eight million people.

This year 27 students of class 4a, 4b and 4c went to London for a week. We went there from 16th to 23rd September by Ryanair. We started at Salzburg Airport and we flew about two hours to London Stansted Airport.
During the week we spent our time with host families who were really friendly. From Monday to Friday we went to school. We had three English lessons every day by native English teachers. In the afternoon we did a lot of sightseeing. We saw many famous and popular places like Hyde Park, London Eye, the clock tower Big Ben and London Dungeon. Two of us were always chosen to be “Tourist Guides” to show our group where to go.
We learned a lot and I think it was a good start for this year’s English lessons at school!
London is very big and an amazing and beautiful city! All of us enjoyed our trip to London a lot and I would really recommend everyone to go there and have a good time!
In the end I want to say a big ‘Thank you’ to Mrs. Schachner-Knoblechner, Mrs. Gürtler and to Mr. Felber, who organized this week.
On Saturday we met at 8:15 am at the airport in Salzburg. We had to wait for a short time until everybody was ready for the group check-in. After that we had breakfast with our parents. I was already a bit nervous, but I was looking forward to our flight, because I have never flown before. At 11:45 am we arrived at London Stansted Airport and I think we all were excited. Later we went by the coach to Cambridge, a very old university city. In the evening we met our host families.
On the next day we met at 8:45 at Mycenae Community Centre. Then we went to St. James’ Park, Buckingham Palace, where we saw the Changing of the Guards, to Green Park, and to the Hard Rock Café shop, where many of us bought a T-shirt or stuff like that. In the afternoon we saw the Royal Horse Guard, the Tower of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament the London Eye. We had a very great view of London.
On Monday, we had school from 9:00-12:00 am by native English teachers. After school, we went to the Cutty Sark, a very big and old merchant Ship. After that we went through the foottunel beneath the River Thames, to the Tower Bridge. Finally we went to the London Dungeon. It was really scary, but I think it was a really good thing in London which had to be visited.
On the fourth day of our London project we had to go to school at first, but then we saw St. Paul’s Cathedral. I liked it very much. We tried the Whispering Gallery and it did really work! Later we walked to Leicester Square and we visited China Town, M&M Megastore and Piccadilly Circus.
On Wednesday we went to the Science Museum, where we saw a film about our planet in 3D. In Oxford Street we went to Hamley’s, one of the biggest toy shops in the world.
On the next day we were going to visit the Musical of Aladdin, which was really great I think.
On the last day in London we walked to Madame Tussaud’s Wax Figure Museum. I liked it very, very much and I took a lot of photos there. In the evening we had the last dinner at our host families’ places and we spent the last night in London. I was a bit sad of it, but I was also looking forward to seeing my family again.
On Saturday we had to get up at 3:00 am. It was a bit too early I think. When were ready to depart, the coach took us back to London Stansted Airport. The departure was at 7:25 am and we arrived at 10:20 am at Salzburg Airport, where our parents were already waiting for us.
