” I hail from the bright and small-scale city island called Singapore. The UK so far has been fascinating and engaging. I did not expect any less, considering that I wanted to immerse myself into the real essence of British culture.
I delight in the Northern weather condition along with its culture because the people here are courteous and amiable. Assimilating to this new way of life has been uncomplicated. The spaces offered at our lodgings are spacious and mellow. The place of Stockton, specifically the place that I stay in has been convenient as it offers us features right at our front door. The last eight weeks have been educational and fruitful, regardless of the busy work schedules.
However, it’s all swell. The way of life in the UK has been rather how I expected since it has a great deal of abundant cultural history that I regard and appreciate.”
