Language students attending St George International (SGI) school have been getting a taste of the real London in a series of guided cultural visits throughout the capital.

Staff at St George International (SGI) have taken advantage of the school’s enviable location between Oxford Street and Regent Street by organising outings for students to see some of the city’s festivals, events and attractions.

As one of the world’s great multicultural cities, London has a lot to offer language students studying St Georges German courses, as well as its Spanish, French and Italian programmes. SGI’s busy social programmers aim to ensure that students are able to enrich their learning by making new friends and absorbing new experiences.

This summer has been no exception, with a new group of Spanish teachers making the most of the 32C weather with a walking tour of the city. In a single week, meandering student groups visited the Tate Modern, a photo exhibition at the Museum of London, the Tower of London, the National Gallery, the British Museum, took a relaxing boat trip on the Thames and stopped for afternoon tea at Brown’s in St Martin’s Lane.

Student accommodation is all based in central London and allows students the chance to do some extra exploring with their new-found friends outside of school. Accommodation options include home stays, hotels, student residences and executive apartments.

Some students prefer to immerse themselves in the host culture by staying in family homes, all of which are inspected and selected by SGI according to strict criteria. Students seeking more independence and a chance to meet other students may go for one of the SGI-approved student residences. SGI also has a number of partner hotels and executive apartments in and around central London.

The staff at SGI can help with specific accommodation requests. For example, for students receiving Italian lessons London accommodation near Little Italy – a nickname applied to the western side of Clerkenwell, which has strong Italian connections that go back more than two centuries – might make for a more rewarding experience.
