Guest Post by Rafael González García de Cosío
Many of us spent a summer in England to learn English when we were younger. It is a very popular destination for many Europeans as it is the cradle of the most important language in the world and it’s only a two-hour flight from some of the main European capitals. Those homestays in summer usually only included sharing accommodation with a family, going to school on a daily basis and organizing a spontaneous excursion to London.
But in adult life, the UK and its capital city, London, can be more than simply a place to learn Shakespeare’s language. London has a lot more to offer, especially if you already control the English language. Westminster, for instance, opens the Parliament’s debates to the public for free. That is a wonderful chance to contemplate the architecture and premises of the House of Commons.
