Hey, what do you guys usually do during the weekend? Apart from coffee shops, one of London’s best features is the variety of weekend markets; you can find yummy street food, vintages items and flowers. For example, Borough market has delicious food (especially seafood), Columbia Road market has fresh and lovely flowers with many eclectic shops along the same street.

Today we will take you to Brick lane – the large flea market which is located in the East end of London.

Brick lane is a place that you can never get bored of; you will always find surprises, new stores and amazing graffiti around every corner. The market is different from other markets, it has a unique style with many cool and stylish people which make it impossible not to be infected by its atmosphere. The highlights of the market are the street artists, graffiti, vinyl, diversity of second hand products and vintages items at bargain prices. If you are a big fan of vintage, this is the right place for you to visit.

One of the main features for Brick lane is the graffiti on the walls which gives East London its distinctive appearance. Each scrawl on the wall tells a story and shares the artist’s emotions.  This is the one of the main things which attracts artists and tourists to come to East London, to affect and inspire the unrestricted and free atmosphere in their own special way.

There are lots of second hand products in the market, such as antique cameras and classic furniture.  There is a large range of vintage clothes and accessories for you to choose from making it easy to find something special. My friend always says that when you come to Brick Lane market you can find treasures, but to be honest, you can find both gems and junk.

Apart from the vintage aspect, there is also delicious street food from different countries. They are not delicacies, but you should definitely try something at least since you will surely discover new tastes. In conclusion, Brick Lane is a place which is fun, tasty and distinctive; you can enjoy it with your friends or even by yourself.

One of the typical things you need to do in Brick Lane is to eat the Rainbow Bagel, have you tried this delicious bagel before? You often need to wait in line for a bit, but I promise you that it’s worth it, both for the taste and the photo opportunities.

This coffee shop is in Brick lane and they are best known for their cakes. It is crowded on Sundays, but it is good to have a moment of rest in this shop after visiting the market.

East London gives people the image of a dirty, rough and poor area of London. But when you talk about East London, it makes me think of sunshine on the graffiti walls and makes me feel creative and free to be myself. Come to East London to explore its many wonders in your own way and escape the weekday routine by wearing fancy sunglasses and bathing in the sunshine between colourful and vibrant streets.

My #SpeakUpLondon Life was one of the best experiences in my life. When I came here I felt so lonely and anxious but since I started the course, I’ve felt comfortable. Everyone is helpful and kind, we are like a family. Also I made lots of friends in all over the world which I’ll keep in touch in rest of life, Of course including fantastic teachers and staffs.

I always wanted to learn English as my second language and after 4 years since I studied it, I came to London. Speak Up London has been a big support for me in this new journey in London. It’s provided me from a beginning level to continue learning English in every situation, and I passed the FCE test!!!

[Speak Up Quote] Nothing Is Impossible

[English Idioms] Pull a rabbit out of a hat

 

[English Idioms] Speak of the Devil

Hello guys, it’s September and the summer in London is going to an end? But this weather is still pleasant.

Do you remember the idioms below and do you know how to use them? Here you go, five more idioms with examples.

34ce9233-b026-4be2-b3c6-846fb81410b3

1.   A hot potato:

Speak of an issue (mostly current) which many people are talking about and which is usually disputed.
A problem, situation, etc. that is difficult to deal with and causes a lot of disagreement.

For example:

Brexit is a hot potato that people are talking about these days.

The abortion issue is a political hot potato in the United States.

f68c5f9e-e1f0-4d6a-88e2-40bee7bbb4c9

2.  Speak of the devil:

It is something that you say when the person you have just been talking about arrives and you were not expecting them.

For example:

Well,speak of the devil, here’s Tom.

Speak of the devil, it’s your dad, throw away the cigarette!

 

27d05f0f-a39f-450d-8ac3-e6c72a66ba82

3.  Elvis has left the building:

The show has come to an end. It’s all over.

Said about things that have ended; finished.


For example:

Jake went to a house party with his friends and after midnight the party ended. Elvis had left the building and it was time to go home.

Elvis has left the building, let’s forget all these things and move on.


98e9140e-8474-4505-b3d0-dd15ef8b36b4

4. Best thing since sliced bread:

A good invention or innovation. A good idea or plan.

For example:

I bought the new watch which can track my calories intake every day, it’s the best thing since sliced bread.  

dc27c686-a9d6-433c-88bb-6c9a710b3319

5. Don’t count your chickens before the eggs have hatched:

Don’t treat something that hasn’t happened as a certainty.

Don’t rely on something you are unsure about; making plans based on assumptions can lead to disappointment.

For example:

Don’t count your chickens before the eggs have hatched, you don’t know the result yet.

Jack “I’m going for a holiday after I pass the exam”.

Mary “Don’t count your chickens before the eggs have hatched”.
