Win a week in England!

You still don't know what to do this summer? Well here's your chance to win a one-week
language course in Kent, England! Free4Fun and ETC (English Travel Connections) are giving
away two trips to Rochester. This historic city is less than an hour's drive from London and
close to the sea resort of Herne Bay. It is also the home of one of England's most famous
writers, Charles Dickens. The town of Rochester is in Southeast England. Charles Dickens
often wrote about it in his books. His home, Gad's Hill, is there, too. A popular attraction is
Rochester Castle, a large Norman fortress. It was built in the 11th century and rebuilt during
the 14th century. Other attractions are Rochester Cathedral, which was built during the 13th
century, and Dickens Centre. It has got its name in honour of Dickens himself.

The trip to England includes:
* travel by train (via the Eurotunnel) to and from any railway station in Germany
* room and full board with a guest family for one week
* language course in small groups
* two trips to London
* large choice of sports and entertainment
* German-speaking counsellors available 24 hours a day

Interested? All you have to do is to answer the following question:

When was Charles Dickens born?
