London is Calling!
As you make your way through Borough Market, one of the largest food markets in London, your senses are overwhelmed. The smell of freshly prepared foods combined with the brightly colored flowers, fruits, and vegetables remind you of the languages you are trying to distinguish around you. You learned in your Global Cities course that over 300 languages are spoken in London, and you are on a personal mission to identify them all. A roar from a nearby pub interrupts you – the local football team has scored! You linger in the district of Southwark a while longer before meeting up with a group of students at a MyEducation activity at the mosque on Brick Lane, the heart of the city’s Bangladeshi community. Over the course of 3 centuries, this structure has been a Protestant chapel, a Jewish synagogue, and now a Muslim mosque. Your service learning program has made you truly connected to the city, and you welcome opportunities like this to supplement your textbook understanding of London with experiential learning. Tonight, you’ll be attending a performance of Shakespeare’s Richard III at the Globe Theater. This is what studying in London is all about: allowing the experiences to rush in.
