"Foreign Language Students" London Favorite Tip by Wexen

London General: 1,880 reviews and 2,520 photos

Favorite thing: I know that a great number of European and Asian people travel to the UK for a couple of weeks in the Summer to study and improve their English.
Whilst it is a good idea to help any Group Leaders find their charges in a crowd, the bags/backpacks and stickers which are provided by the companies that arrange these trips also give a good indication to less ruly members of British society, that they are a good target for mugging and assault.
It has become so bad in some areas that schools are boycotting those areas and no longer booking trips to them.

So if your child is coming to the UK for Language courses, please tell them not to use those bags,backpacks and stickers outside of arranged trips or when being met by their transport at airport and ferry terminals.
