Now it's time to tell you about this very very interesting experience.
First of all, the host family: friendly and very British, living in a particular residential house, not far from the city centre.
 The course: two weeks of full immersion, from 9 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon. Lots of new teaching ideas but, above all, close contact with the other colleagues from different countries, lead by our perfect teacher Mrs Shon.
We also spent some afternoons outside, sightseing Oxford, under the lively guide of Rob, or having a beer in a typical pub in the evening. We also visited a comprehensive school, getting lots of information and examples of real British school life.
And London...what to say: amazing, stunning!
Everything and everybody has given us the awareness that attending an Erasmus+ course is a great opportunity for teachers to get in contact with new realities and new teaching methods, useful to disseminate in our profession.
Thanks to everybody.

Here some pictures...
