Exciting Time in London

I perceive that British people dress very stylishly, as we see in movies, with cool suits as they walk around. This is quite different from Thailand, where the hot weather means people prefer comfortable clothes that won’t make them sweat a lot. In England, people dress stylishly in a variety of ways. Personally, I love the fashion style of “Peaky Blinders”; it’s so cool that it makes me want to dress like them. England values freedom in how people dress, live, work, and in marriage equality, and they have been doing it for a long time before Thailand.

My family and friends are big fans of Liverpool Football Club. If I ever get the chance to visit England, I would love to attend a match at Anfield Stadium, where Liverpool FC plays, and purchase football jerseys to bring back for them. Watching a Premier League football match in England is a dream for many, as it allows one to witness the real players in action. I have a deep appreciation for food and would like to taste authentic Fish and Chips, which is a staple dish from England. I would also like to try the menu at Burger & Lobster.

I have a few friends from the UK such as Mistee and Yasmine, as well as others whom I used to have meals with in Ayutthaya, Thailand. I wish I could meet my friends from Vietnam, but it’s unlikely we’ll be able to meet in England, which makes me sad. I want to improve my communication skills with my international friends so that we can stay in touch, get to know each other better, and rely on each other in the future. It’s important for me to practice speaking fluently so that we can have meaningful conversations and deepen our friendships.

I am looking forward to improving my language skills while I visit the University of Westminster. I hope to participate in various activities and make new friends from the university. Additionally, I believe that both universities should organize more exchange programs like this to enable students from both countries to get to know each other better and travel to Thailand and England for cultural exchanges. It’s crucial to accept the differences in people, including their personalities, thoughts, and feelings, and understand each other’s cultures through shared experiences.

Travelling to foreign countries allows us to immerse ourselves in the local culture. We can plan our itinerary and also remain flexible with our time to discover new experiences. It involves visiting local restaurants where the native people dine, trying out unique cuisine, communicating with restaurant staff, and gaining fresh perspectives that may not be available in our own country. By embracing new cultures, we learn to adapt and live independently, without relying on others. We get to meet new people, make new friends, learn from new teachers, and participate in activities that we have never experienced before in our lives. Exploring England is an adventure that we must embark on by ourselves.
