So, what's going on in London this week for our students?
If you don't already know, SGI has the best social programme for foreign students studying English in London. And these cool events happen every day! :)
If you are at the school right now, make sure that you come along and try out the social programme events. They start at about 3:15pm most days (see below for exact times) and most events are free.
It's a really excellent way to meet other people in the school and to practise your English in a natural setting.

London is full of people... about 12 million of them!
But as it is possibly the coolest city in the world, it is also packed full of rich and famous people.
Normally, celebrities like sports and movie stars travel around the streets of London in blacked out people carriers or in an expensive, chauffeur-driven Mercedes-Benz.
But sometimes, just sometimes, you can see a world-famous celebrity on the streets of London just doing what all the 'normal people' do.
Here you can see Tom Cruise nearly getting hit by a London double decker bus!

Fitzrovia is the district immediately north of Oxford Street which is where SGI London is located (just 5 minutes walk from Oxford Circus tube).
There are LOTS of places to grab some lunch in this area as soon as morning lessons have finished because it is an office/media district and there are thousands of people who are dying for something to eat come midday.
