Our students are really settling in to the swing of things at Reach Cambridge!
The day started off with a traditional English cooked breakfast in a local restaurant, followed by another morning of subject classes. Highlights from the subject classes today included discussions about Populism and Nationalism in Politics & International Relations, and learning about HTML coding in Computer Science!
After class, students soaked up the sun on their walk into the city centre and enjoyed some free time for lunch: many students enjoyed sampling the international food stalls in the historical market in Market Square.
After this came the Community Outreach workshop, the part of the Program where students explore ways to give back to the community. This week's talk was by local Cambridge charity, Winter Comfort, who offer support for homeless and domestically vulnerable people in Cambridge - please check out their website for more info! Following the talk, students were given the chance to showcase presentations about what they had learned, and to talk about the different aid available in their own countries. We all came out of it feeling ready to make a difference in the world!
After some card and board games in the afternoon, the day was topped off with a formal dinner at one of Cambridge University's central colleges: Christ's. Students were treated to a three course meal, in the fashion of a Cambridge student formal. Between courses, students compared idioms with each other in their respective languages - the academic environment must be contagious!
After returning to Reach Hall, the students had some free time before heading up for an early night, in preparation for the exciting London excursion tomorrow!
