【Oh!爸媽】走過那些年:15件英國留學生的集體回憶 Part 3

1. 英國的水龍頭一邊是火山溫度的熱水,另一邊是北極溫度的冰水。希斯路機場廁所的水喉只有冒煙的熱水,洗完雙手變了紅燒鵝掌。

2. 由冬令時間變為夏令時間會撥快一小時;日照時間特別長,成夜晩十點先天黑,放學去完pub返到屋企都未天黑。

3. 消費稅非常高,VAT佔20%。 每次去機場check in前見到Tax Refund的人龍也嚇一跳,原來給£15就可以省卻排隊時間,有專人為你辦理手續。

4. 英國人好鍾意small talk,講天氣可以講半個鐘,講下屋企附近新開的咖啡店又半個鐘,兜兜轉轉,最後幾分鐘先入正題,試過打電話去餐廳預約講了35分鐘先訂到張枱。

5. 英國的天氣變幻無常,英國人落雨都唔興擔遮。一來英國風大,開得把遮都吹爛,就算把遮夠硬淨,開得幾分鐘雨都停了。只要一件Mackintosh,加頂flat cap就搞掂。

6. 秋天遍地紅葉,十足韓劇場景,可以盡情影相,不用去日本也有紅葉睇。

7. Local food market的海鮮十份便宜,大概 £10就買到一條新鮮的三文魚或者一隻生猛龍蝦。

8. 在英國幾乎餐餐都瘋狂食芝士,加埋prosciutto和salami就更加正。明明英國£3就買到包 parma ham,喺city’super要百幾蚊先買到。

9. 離開英國後,最懷念的是和flatmates煮飯的日子。由一位好少入廚房的港孩變成十八般廚藝樣樣皆精的港男。

10. 趕時間但肚餓又想慳錢可以去超市買份£3的Meal Deal:有sandwich,crisps和汽水,簡簡單單又一餐。

11. 英國戲院張戲飛紙咁薄,好容易當發票扔掉。入場時,職員會撕一撕戲飛表示已經入場。

12. Tesco和Sainsbury’s也是英國價廉物美的連鎖超市,£1.2的英國餅乾來到香港的Taste/Jason賣$40,足足貴三倍還變了高級品牌。

13. Boots是英國藥妝店之首:無論化妝品、身體護理用品、專業藥劑師和曬相服務通通也齊備,重點是經常劈價,買到你荷包出血。

14. Weekend和三五知己去倫敦West End看musicals是留學生美好的回憶,Lion King,Les Misérables、Phantom of the Opera也值得再三回味。

15. 畢業了,回港後經常想回到舊時,繼續做學生,在英國貪多一點無憂無慮的日子。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
