Mr. Varma, our Native English Teacher, was keen to impart some local knowledge on the English Ambassadors about his home city of London. The 3rd English Ambassadors’ gathering took place on 11th March and the EAs were told exciting facts about various monuments and both famous and notorious people from the English capital. They learned lots of trivia from telephone box windows and the initials of reigning monarchs on the red pillar boxes to the ravens of the Tower of London and the mistaken purchase of Tower Bridge by the USA.
Finally, in small groups the English Ambassadors devised a story using the new vocabulary along with the facts and figures just learned. The stories were allowed to be nonsensical in order to aid memorization. Another enjoyable and fun gathering for the English Ambassadors!
