Many people go to the UK in summer to study English. Typically, they enrol in a language school for a fortnight (=two weeks) or even longer, and attend language classes in the morning. In the afternoon, there is often a choice between supplementary (= extra) lessons, or social activities, such as trips to museums or places of local interest, or sport activities. The school will probably also book your accommodation.

Maybe you will stay with a local family on a full-board (= accommodation and all meals included) or half-board (= accommodation plus breakfast and dinner) basis, or perhaps you will stay in student accommodation, such as a hall of residence (= specially-built accommodation for students attending English universities).

Before you start your English course, you'll probably need to do a placement test, which will assess your language level. If you're attending a business English course, you'll probably also do a needs analysis, which pinpoints the areas of business English that you need to work on.
Most language schools offer a range of courses. For instance, you might decide to have your lessons in a small group, or you might prefer a one-to-one or individual course. Schools also offer exam-preparation courses (for the Cambridge or TOEFL exams) as well as YL (young learner = children) courses and ESP (English for Specific Purposes) courses.

Your teacher should be TEFL-qualified, which means that he or she has undergone specific training to teach English as a foreign language. He or she should be sensitive to your problems or needs, as well as able to manage the classroom effectively and to provide a range of learning activities.
However, it's also true to say that you "get out what you put in": the harder you study, and the more you take advantage of being in an English-speaking country, the faster you will improve your English.

There are many things you can get done at a Beauty Salon.
We can have massages to relax us, facials to clean and purify the skin on our faces and even get our nails painted. I love to get manicures where they make my fingernails look nice, but I don't like pedicures where they try and make my toenails nice. It always tickles my feet when the woman paints my toes.
Sometimes there is a hairdresser at a beauty salon which is a person who works cutting hair. Many times they are also called hairstylists because they also create different hairstyles which can be considered a type of art.

Before the hairdresser cuts your hair she normally washes it in the washbasin. First she uses shampoo to clean the hair and then she uses conditioner to keep the hair from getting into tangles. Finally she rinses the hair with water.
When it is cold outside you need to blow dry your hair with a blow dryer. You don't want to catch a cold walking around with wet hair.
Women with straight hair who want curly hair use rollers everyday. Women who want their hair to always be curly go to the beauty salon to get a perm. Hairspray keeps all of your hair in place, so that it doesn't get messed up when you move.

When women want to change the colour of their hair they dye it, using fake chemical colours. Many times women do not want to dye all of their hair and instead just do small pieces. When they make the hair a colour lighter than their original colour they are called highlights, when the colour is darker they are called lowlights.
When women go to fancy events they often have their hair styled. A bun or a French twist are examples of common up-dos. In general when women do their own hair they normally only put it in a ponytail if it is long. Little girls often braid their hair and put them into pigtails, or two smaller ponytails.
I need a hairdresser now because my hair is unhealthy because of all of the split ends.

The word barber today is used for men who cut hair for other men or sometimes to shave them.
Instead of shaving some women use hot wax and rip the hair out. It is very popular for women because the hairs take longer to come back, but be careful, it can really hurt. The most frequent parts of the body that are waxed are the legs and the armpits.
To keep your skin looking young and healthy you should use moisturiser every day and drink 8 glasses of water.
Cleopatra wore a lot of eyeliner around her eyes.
