Hello all you budding economists coming to study English at ICE, No doubt you realise that the weak Pound means a better exchange rate and you will be shopping in Oxford Street, that famous street in the centre of London. Close by is Carnarby Street famous for trendy clothes.  Halfway down this street is the turning into Broadwick Street and on the right is the John Snow pub where shoppers can rest their feet and get a welcome beer and snack. The pub is appropriately named after Dr John Snow who discovered the cause of cholera in 1854. He mapped many of the deaths from the disease near his S…

Hello English language students, Spring is here! So a walk on Hampstead Heath is in order to enjoy nearly 370 ha of unspolit countryside close to the centre of London. Moreover it one of the highest points of London and so enjoys much fresher air. Climb up Parliament Hill on the Heath and at the top find one of the most spectacular views of the City. For many years the local English of Hampstead called it “Traitor”s Hill” after 1605 when Guy Fawkes decided to blow up the Houses of Parliament and kill King James I. Fawkes and his 13 conspirators had arranged to meet on Parliament Hill to watc…

Hello to our friends in and from South America. Soon our students from Venezuela in Islington Centre for English will be celebrating their Independence day on 19th April. Hopefully the weather will be kind and they can visit Belgrave Square close to Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace in the centre of London. There they can lay flowers at the statue of Simon Bolivar the South American hero, born 24th July in Venezuela, who was known as “El Liberator” for his role in liberating Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia.  Simon died aged 47 on the 17th December 1830. In 1810 he led a delegatio…

Calling all you fans of fame, fashion and history. In Central London you can ”meet” all the world’s most famous people. It was in 1789 that Marie Grosholz learned the art of molding the heads of victims of the guillotine. After marriage she came to Britain as Mrs Marie Tussaud with 35 of her waxwork figures. Today, 182 years later, students of English can visit Madame Tussaud’s in Baker Street, London to see world famous people both dead and living.  Charles Dickens called it: “an institution with celebrities”. One of the most popular is Princess Diana who wore a beautiful red gown when I wen…

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!

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 – …
