Our point of meeting was near the college. All of us was so happy to see our team. Honestly, I was the happiest person in the world when I met my lovely friends. All members of team was little bit nervous because of test. After our team meeting we went to classroom and two teacher gave us a paper with test and blanks for answers. We started to write and I felt so tense atmosphere. When we finished with the test our team had a break. We set on grass and communicate about the test. We found wrong answers and discussed about it. After break my team and me went to the canteen and teachers of the college told us rules of the school and gave us a plan of this day. Also teachers told us a results of the test and made a groups. We have a multinational groups because it includes Spanish, French and Italian people. My group is so funny and so cool. They are so nice and talkative. In class we played a game for familiarity. Also we had something like competition for check our vocabulary. My group is very clever. After our lesson I met with another members of team. They told me their emotions and opinion. All of us think that it's really good opportunity to hang out with foreigners and for improv our grammar skills. For example Kate told that she like so much their first lesson because of kind teacher and interesting and funny games. Slava told that he has a nice and so strong clever people in his group. Team was so excited by our first day in the college. After school we went to the city center by train. At the city center we saw so many glorious buildings. In my opinion Dublin has a wonderful architecture. We was at the city center with two teacher of the school. They told our group history of city,showed us famous pubs,demonstrated a two shops streets. However my team was so tired because of school day and warm sunny weather.After our tour my team decided to drink coffee and eat donuts.
