Look Who "Popped In' to Class

Above is a picture of the video screen from one of our London pre-departure classes. The topic of the class that day was British culture and language.  Who better to discuss this with the students than a 'real proper Brit'? Graciously, as always, Constable Richard Watson of the Metropolitan Police Service spared some of his free time with us and joined the class from his home outside of London.  Constable Watson educated the group on the Queen's English, safety precautions 'whilst travelling', and general cultural differences between the English and Americans.  Most importantly, he made the students laugh, put them at ease about what to expect in London, and amped up the excitement level considerably.  We are looking forward to spending time with him while we are in London.
