Last summer I went to Ratcliffe Summer School. I spent two lovely weeks in England. We did lots of activities every day, on Mondays and Wednesdays students from the School came to meet us and speak English together. It was cool! I made lost of friends.

The Summer School at Ratcliffe College was both fun and rewarding. There were lots of activities throughout the two weeks. We were fully occupied from morning to evening. The lessons in the morning included many different topics and there was a good chance to brush up on our vocabulary.
