The two weeks spent in England were full of experience for me. I met lots of interesting people from all around the world who I am still in contact with. The summer campus I stayed in was very big and I was quite pleased with the rooms, which were all very neat. The activities were very creative, feauturing disco nights, sports days, excursions, bowling and etc. I liked the excursions and visiting interactive museums such as the Jorvik Viking Centre the most. The staff members were all really kind and made the trip even better. I found the morning classes very interesting, but a bit too long. We had a Trinity exam at the end of our stay, which I passed with three A. I really hope I will be able to return one day because England was an amazing experience for me.

The prize that I won is important for me for more than one reason. Not only did it help me build self-confidence but it also brought me the most beautiful journey of my life. I have travelled a lot but I never had a chance to visit the Great Britain, one of the most beautiful countries in the world. This year, not only did I have a chance to visit it but I also spent two weeks in a language camp. I liked it all – the classes weren't boring at all but interesting and creative and the teachers were always kind and in a good mood so it didn't feel like being in a class at all. We also learnt a lot. Every day we would go on a short excursion, we saw wonderful towns such as York and Manchester, visited plenty of interesting museums and we even saw the Old Trafford stadium! If I had to pick only one thing that I liked, it would be the company – friends from all over the world that I otherwise would have never met, which made my summer unforgettable.
