A Day in theLife* Rise and shine! Get ready for another fun-filled day with your friends.

Breakfast.

Walk to school with friends.

Time for class! Today’s lesson focuses on communication skills, so your teacher starts the day with the vocabulary and grammar you need to have a structured debate. Who will win?

Break.

The class is divided into teams so the debate can finally begin! It’s time to put your new skills into practice.

Lunch.

Leave school and head to today’s activity – shopping at Camden Market and a trip to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum!

This is the perfect time for a Skype call home to tell your family and friends what you’ve been up to today!
