Day 25- 26th July, Poděbrady

Thursday was the day of the Farewell Party, so after spending the afternoon sunbathing by the lake, we headed to the castle. First of all, all the classes (except A1, who was missing members who had gone to a concert) sang their songs. A2 sang a song about students in the pub and in class, then we (B1) sang our song about the rain. Afterwards, B2 (Misha and Sheffield!Nic’s class – though Misha refused to sing) sang about bees and flowers. I couldn’t understand what C1’s song was about, but it was very pretty. We then gave our teacher, Zuzanna, flowers to say thank you for teaching us. I think she’s been one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. Not only did she make the lessons fun, but she seemed to instinctively know when people were having problems with an exercise and she’d come over and help. I also like the way she only used English as a last resort, instead she’d find different ways to say it in Czech. I’ll miss not having her as a teacher. After the songs, we watched some members of the summer school put on a production of Alice in Wonderland. Then it was time to eat. The Summer School had put on a buffet, complete with free drinks, which of course included free alcohol! Within the alcohol was sect, which is the Czech version of Champagne and is delicious! Perhaps even better than Champagne itself…There was also a band playing both modern and traditional Czech songs, meaning we got to show off your polka dancing skills. It also played songs we knew, such as YMCA, but in Czech! After the party finished, we headed to a club not 200 yards from the Castle that played 70s and 80s songs. It was strange not having to pay for entry and still getting cheap drinks. I wish there were more clubs like that in the UK!
