The Japanese Adventure- Part one – By Rachel Huggins

Hajimemashite! Greetings from Japan!!! Last Monday, the 5th of April, I and three other University of Winchester students, Tom, James and Anna, embarked on the exchange trip to Japan, where we will be learning to teach English as a foreign language.

Do You Want To Come Up Here And Have A Go? – The Adventures of Stand-up Comedian Rewan Tremethick

Having been to several open mic nights, it has become apparent that there is a perception of comedy that it is simply getting up on stage and talking for a bit. It is, in the same way as saying you get a pig and then sausages happen. If comedy is just talking, then art is …
