An English Night On The Town

Back in July I was invited to an event in London that was hosted by a language company in London called Englishtown. Englishtown is an online English learning website with qualified English teachers so whether you would like to learn English at a business level or just learn a bit more than you already know, than Englishtown might be the place for you. Most of my readers probably already know English very well, but if you're reading this using Google translate or getting it translated from someone else this might be a good website for you to improve your English in comfort at home whenever you have time as it is so easy. Just log on to their website and follow the instruction and off you go.

At Englishtown you can chose different ways of studying English either self-directed or if you would like some more structure and help, request for one of their teachers to start learning the language better.

We were invited to this amazing hotel in Soho called Sanctum Soho Hotel which is an amazing and exciting hotel with beautiful and quirky rooms and even a cinema in the basement.

Look at this amazing interior!! It's so quirky and fun and what an absolute treat to watch a movie in comfortable seats with tables to put your drink. At the back of the room is a bar where you can get served drinks to keep you refreshed throughout the movie as well.

 I was invited to the event by the stunning Erica from Talented Talkers. She looked so pretty in her dress and was so lovely.

We were given goodie bags with everything we needed for a movie night and everything in it was typical English. We got some gin and tonic, after eight chocolate, English tea and of course popcorn.

I met an old friend at the event as well. Lovely Hanna from Hanna Wears. As a fellow Nordic English is not our mother tongue so it was fun to meet up at an event that was not about plus size fashion.

Beautiful and different wall decoration at the Sanctum Hotel Soho.

We had been invited to watch an English movie that we could chose the genre of before the event. Most of us chose to watch a comedy (me included) and the movie we saw were Austin Powers. I had never seen it before, but I thought it was great fun.

 Since my daughter was over for the summer holiday I had kindly been given the chance to bring her and she had a fun time although I think she was most happy there was Wifi in the cinema :)

Ceiling lights

Stained glass decoration in the hotel, Jimi Hendrix has rarely looked more colourful.

It was a great event, different and fun. Great way of getting "foreign" bloggers together since we all are living here in England for different reasons. Erica herself are Australian and Hanna is Finnish. I'm Norwegian and we all have the English language in common.



  1. Sounds like you had a blast. Austin Powers, I haven't seen that forever, I kind of feel like I need to watch it now!

  2. This looks like such a fun event! I'm almost jealous English is my mother tongue. Hahaha! How lovely to see Hanna again, and the cinema looks AMAZING!
