England Study Tour
Oxford Study Tour 2018

Lau Tin Lam, Miko

From 30/6 to 16/7, we had fun in the Oxford Study Tour. It was a very good experience for me to improve my English speaking and listening skills. If I have a chance of joining study tour again, I will also select the UK.

Personally, this study trip was very good because I have learned a lot of things. By visiting numerous historical buildings like Oxford Castle, Warwick Castle and Westminster Abbey, I have learnt more about history and taken a lot of photos. We all love these historical buildings. Those are magnificent. They are different from Hong Kong’s high-rise buildings. I love Oxford very much. It was a great place to visit. In this tour, I learnt many things such as some new vocabulary and slangs, which are very useful in my life.

I have some memorable moments. Every day, my host, Hana came and talked with my roommate and me. She was so nice and caring. She is like my elder sister. I will never forget her. On the last day, I burst into tear on the coach after saying goodbye to her.

This is my first time travelling abroad. What an interesting and exciting experience! When arriving at the UK, I got a little jet lag and missed my family with mixed feeling. Then, I met my host family in Oxford. Their passion really saved me and gave me warmth. They were nice and often helped us solve problems. They cooked some delicious national food like curry. 

What’s next, the tour leader was very kind. We followed her with local guide to visit the town in Oxford. The view was spectacular. It was my luck to visit the ancient library, traditional colleges, huge museums with numerous valuable exhibits and so on. The Oxford Castle & Prison is the most impressive one. That used to be a place for prisoners. Out of my expectation, the living conditions of the prisons were terribly poor. However, London impressed me a lot. What an excellent city! We even went to the Buckingham Palace. It is so grand!  

In this tour, we had a good time living with teammates. For me, the golden moment was the time we took an adventure for Photos Orientation Challenge around Oxford city. We worked together to finish the missions on the list. That was interesting and meaningful. By completing these missions, we could know more about the culture of the U.K. and improved our communication skills.

I love Oxford. If I can visit here again, I will be the guide to take my family for sightseeing.
