Hello again, English students! This week we look at the world of pop music. Many of you will have seen the famous album cover of the Beatles walking in line across a pedestrian crossing on Abbey Road in Central London. The picture represented the band arriving at EMI’s famous studio in Abbey Road. However, soon the Beatles were not crossing Abbey Road but going to Soho the centre of London’s entertainment district for there, tucked away in St Anne”s Court, is Trident Studios which became more popular with performers  such as David Bowie, Queen, Elton John, Lou Reed and The Who. The Beatles re…

Hi English students!  Here’s my latest gem of London history for you.  This week Greenwich.  Greenwich Park was a favourite place for Kings and Queens and later Londoners to escape the dust and heat from central London. Today people still enjoy this Royal park which is on the riverbank of the Thames. Once a port, its name comes from the Anglo Saxon language for “Green Port”.  Visitors can also go inside the Cutty Sark, which was the fastest sailing ship in the world in 1869 when she could cover over 563km per day as she brought tea from China to London. Not English but Scottish, the ship’s …

Any job interview is a nerve-wracking experience, particularly if it isn't conducted in your native language. If you follow these simple tips, you should make a great first impression – and hopefully clinch that job! Preparation is key As soon as you know the date and time of the job interview, you should be making an effort to prepare. One of the best ways to do this is by getting an English-speaking friend to ‘play the role’ of the interviewer, asking you questions you would expect to have to cover in the real thing. At the end of the mock interview, ask your friend to give you feedback – …

ICE English students!  Welcome to my new weekly, London blog.  Join me as I learn a little more about this fascinating, ancient metropolis every day. One of the  world’s most famous clock towers is in Central London and known  by tourists including the English as “Big Ben”. However, its correct name is Elizabeth Tower renamed in 2012 to mark Queen Elizabeth's 60th year on the throne. Before that is was known as St Stephen’s Tower . Big Ben is the 13-tonne bell behind the clock.

About Books and Stuff

ABOUT BOOKS AND STUFF… What’s one of the best ways to improve your English outside school hours? Apart from hanging out in  the Three Johns practicing English over a pint or two the answer is… reading, reading and…reading as much as you can, as often as you can, on the tube, on your lunch break, while you’re waiting for the bus, before and after your lesson. I’ve always been very passionate and enthusiastic about literature, though I admit I can be a very fussy reader who likes browsing, looking for independent bookshops and hunting for a bargain.

Best things in life come in threes like excellent English courses in an independent language school located in the perky area of Angel. Sometimes best things also come for free, think of museums and art galleries. But how about a weekend of free music just a short bus ride from Angel in this freezing cold month of October?    I’m talking about the Stoke Newington Festival.  If the name doesn’t ring a bell,  grab your oyster CARD and jump on the 73 or 476 to explore the lovely N16 neighborhood in all its glory. From 21st until 23rd of October Stokey is the place where you need to be.  All gig…
