Welcome to Dolphin Languages blog!
Keep visiting here to keep updated on what we do, what’s going on and for all things Brighton!
So, it has been a while since a blog post and there’s no time like the present to get back to keeping you updated! We hope everyone got to enjoy the lovely long weekend that we did. Believe it or not but the weather was actually nice (well most of the time anyway…)
It’s all systems go with us at the moment, we’re looking into a brilliant summer and we’ve already got lots of students coming to soak up the cosmopolitan atmosphere in ‘little London by-the-sea’. A lot happens in Brighton over the summer, in fact, it’s not even officially summer yet and next month we’ve already got the Brighton Festival and the Great Escape Festival happening. The summer for Brightonians and visitors just means that everything gets better and there’s even more things to do. How about checking out a film for free on the beach or maybe heading to the sea front volley ball venue? Maybe you just want to relax, grab a coffee and some lunch and watch the busking musicians and bands in the pavilion gardens. Yep, you can pretty much do anything you like! The students joining us have got an unbelievable amount of things to see and do, even just walking around the city and looking at the beautiful street art is incredible.
Another bit of great news for us is that we’ve expanded out of Brighton slightly and moved into London for a special two week course. We’ve just developed a partnership with Harrow and Mill Hill Schools for a football and English course. It’s designed to be a lot more luxurious than our other courses and it shows. We had a look round the schools and to be honest, we’re a little jealous of the students that are attending our course! We found out about some interesting old Harrovians like Winston Churchill, the founder of Island Records Chris Blackwell and the excellent photo-bomber and actor Benedict Cumberbatch. The students are going to be taught be some serious and passionate coaches and we’re really excited to see how it’s going to go for our first year.
So that’s what’s going on at the moment for us here! The sun is coming out, it’s getting warmer and that’s when Brighton really comes alive and we can’t wait for our students to see and experience it. Remember, if you ever want to get in touch with us, ask a few questions or even have a chat about Brighton and what to see and for any recommendations, we’ll be happy to help. All of our staff are lovely and friendly and very knowledgeable and, especially, love to chat!
Hope you’re looking forward to the summer as much as we are!

As advised by Brighton police & the city councils seafront team: Please do not take your children and/or dogs to the beach as the waves are extremely dangerous.
We have 52 reports of trees and/or branches down so far today. Our teams are concentrating on bigger trees which are blocking pavements.
Hurricane force winds of up to 100mph are battering Britain with coastal areas expected to be particularly hard hit.
There are no trains until at least 10am, and bus travel along the coast has been severely disrupted. The roads are also affected, with Sussex Police receiving reports of 125 trees down already. Trees have been brought down and widespread structural damage has been predicted, leading to power cuts and transport chaos.
This live footage shows the seafront at Brighton as England’s south coast feels the force of the St Jude storm.

In October it is raining almost every day. But that is no reason to stay at home. There are lots of opportunities to go out in Brighton. One website which may help you to find suitable activities for you is : http://www.theargus.co.uk/leisure/
It helped me a lot with planning my days and meeting new people. It’s perfect for people who want to come in contact with people of different nationalities. So even in the rain you can have fun!

I live in Germany and my nationality is Turkish. Something that made me feel home were the various restaurants in Brighton. For example the Istanbul Restaurant (close to Waitrose) is a Turkish restaurant with lots of traditional Turkish food. Also the staff is Turkish which allows me to speak my mother tongue even in England. There are also many other restaurants of different countries (Chinese, Mexican, etc.).
I feel very home in Brighton!
It was the best idea to come to Brighton! I never expected that I would meet such different and lovely people. Almost all of them come from different countries and that makes the conversations very interesting. I made a lot of friends and we will be in contact in future.
Brighton is full of interesting people! If you want to meet people who are lovely and a little bit crazy (in a good sense!) then come to Brighton. Just can recommend spending the time in this wonderful city.
