The London scoial programme for the students at SGI English school is very special. Why?
Well, every week, we take our lucky students to see one of London's top shows. Sometimes it's a popular theatre play, or even Shakespeare at The Globe in the summer months.
But most weeks, we go to see a musical. As our students are learning English, it's better to go to a musical because it is easier to understand than a long play with lots of difficult English words!
Over the years, we have probably visited every musical there is to see in London.
There are some shows though that become the students' favourites. So, we mix up the programme to see some old favourites and new shows every month.
Check out the video below to see which musicals we will be visiting in the April Social Programme calendar.
