      Worthing Pier

      August 30, 2018 in England ⋅ ☀️ 66 °F

      Worthing has a pier like Brighton, but instead of an amusement park, it has the Southern Pavilion, which is an Art Deco cafe in the daytime, and a venue for music and other events at night. All along the pier are glass panels to display art done by children and other townfolk.Read more

      Worthing: Another Seaside Resort

      August 30, 2018 in England ⋅ ☀️ 64 °F

      Worthing and Brighton were fishing villages before they became resorts. Then bathing in seawater began to be recommended as a cure for illnesses. Men and women used separate areas of the beaches. Bathing Machines were used in the 18th and 19th centuries; these were wheeled carts with sides and a roof, in which the bather would change into a bathing suit and then be wheeled into the water. They bathed with the cart protecting them from view of the shore.

      Worthing has a Beach House with a bowling green, tennis courts, mini golf, and playground for families, There is a pleasant promenade next to the beach. It was a very clean area, and quite enjoyable.

      blog entry number 1

      April 19, 2022 in England ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

      After two days of my language stay, I have a bad perspective of the United Kingdom and a bad perspective of the language stay itself. At the moment, I think my school (also a Centre of English Studies) is unable to coordinate people and is also unable to work as an authority. The other students, which already have been here for a week and will stay for this week, are a good example of my conclusion. They are all KV students from Aarau and they don't respect the teacher and they don't try to profit of this possibility. They are sitting around and make jokes on German and Swissgerman during the lesson. And the teacher reacts with strategies, which I only know from the kindergarten. She says: “Please be quit.” Or she says: “This people, who have their birthday in December can go into the break.” Or she says: “Is it possible to be a bit quitter.” During these noisy lessons, we have to sit there and try to work (in my opinion, this was playing a game) and interact with this KV students.

      The left-hand traffic is new to me.

      I find it interesting, that the gulls are sitting on the houses and that the pigeons are sitting at the coast and not the other way around.

      Nothing surprised me.

      blog entry number 2

      May 1, 2022 in England ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

      After two weeks of my language stay, I have the impression that the situation became better than in the first two days. After the KV-students left the CES-school, the lessons became less noisy and we got more exercises to do during the lessons. The lessons are not that interesting as in Switzerland. Most of all we have to make a conversation or we have to play scrabble. We also have to create a travel guide for the next students, but this exercise really makes sense in my opinion.
      The enjoyable points of this stay are rare. The trips to Brighton on the first Sunday and also on the second Saturday were enjoyable and the time in which it was quiet in Worthing was also enjoyable. Unfortunately, it is almost never quiet in Worthing. The children are crying, the seagulls are making noise and the televisions in the house of my host family are nearly permanent turned on.
      A difficult point of this stay is the fact, that I don’t endure children. The problem of this fact is, that the numerous grandchildren of the host family like to visit their grandparents. As a consequence of these two facts, it is sometimes really hard for me to stay there. Lucky for me, the ADHD grandchildren lost the permission of their mother to visit their grandparents, so it became less noisy than in the first week.
