In Search of Sun…..How to Beat the British Weather

As the UK faces heavy rain throughout the country we are reminded that today, 20th June 2016, is the first day of British summertime. If you were hoping, as we do every year, for shorts and t-shirt weather, picnic lunches in the park, and doing your language class homework in the sun, you will feel the inevitable let down of the British weather. However, do not despair – we have some great suggestions that will not only offer sunshine and blue skies, but brighten your mood and also improve your language skills!

To book any of these great experiences or for more information on any of our language courses contact the cactus team by email or by phone. One of our multilingual team will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
