Oxbridge – Оксбридж (Оксфорд и Кембридж)

1f) 2g) 3a) 4d) 5b) 6c) 7e)

Oxbridge is something I feel very strongly about. For those who don’t know what Oxbridge is, (1) it’s Oxford and Cambridge University. Cunning really, and sounds better than Camford. I’m going to start here by exploding a few myths — the first of which is that these universities are the best in the country.
They aren’t. It all depends on one, which subject you take, and two, (2) what you are looking for in a university. If you want to do medicine, for example, you’d be much better off at Edinburgh: the Cambridge course is incredibly academic and focused on training research doctors rather than practicing ones. And the same is true of other subjects. On the other hand, there are some subjects at which Oxbridge excels: Oxford for English, for example, (3) and Cambridge for history. So the first message is: don’t get caught up in the idea that these universities are superior to every other university academically, (4) because it’s simply not true.
So. If you’ve decided it is for you, what next?

Celine Dion

Celine Dion

Celine Dion

She is the most successful female singer in the world and her Titanic theme tune topped British charts for five weeks. She comes from a tight family unit. Celine was the youngest of 14 children (nine girls and five boys). She grew up in humble circumstances in a tiny house near Montreal. Her parents worked hard but money was tight and music often paid the bills. The Dion family was singing and dancing at weddings and parties. Celine’s father was the family’s band leader. He also did all kinds of jobs, and her mother never worked. Celine laughs: “Are you kidding, raising 14 kids!” Every Sunday the family grew bigger. All neighbours and friends wanted to be round them, and they never locked the door.
