Best shopping experience ever!

Posted on: 19/12/2014

The Lille Christmas shopping trip was a great experience because we got to go into lots of different shops, and we had to use our language skills which we had learnt in French to help us buy things. We got to meet new people and make new friends as well as having fun with other friends. We had lots of independence but the teachers were always nearby so if we had a problem we wouldn't be that far away from them.

There was plenty of things to do such as going on the big wheel shopping in the Christmas market as well as on the high street in addition to that we got to go to cite de Europe which was a great experience as we had to order our own food and manage our time wisely.

A good thing was that we always had a map and we then could tell where our favourite shops were and we organised which shops we would go in and where we would eat. As well as that time management was key because we always had to meet up after a couple of hours. I would definitely recommend this trip because we had to use new skills and despite all of the travelling it was definitely worth it.
