Thoughts on CIT

CIT (Computer Information Technology) classes are part of foundation courses at Bellerbys. The purpose for studying CIT is so that I can improve my computer skills which will help in university, and in the future, especially with the growing importance of technology.  I have enjoyed all CIT classes so far as I find it very interesting and fun. For instance, the use of certain codes can actually program the software for a specific use. In Excel, you can ‘lock’ a code by using dollar signs. I have not found anything that difficult or contradictory yet. I think I need to know more about the different softwares like Excel, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Powerpoint. I have used all these different softwares before, however CIT gives a deeper insight into these applications which is very useful.




My reason for studying English is because it is already a part of my course and it is very easy and sweet. There is a very big difference between academic and general English study because the academic one is a lot more formal than the general one. In the academic English, you are asked to reference your points and give sources for where in formation is gotten but this is not so in general English. I enjoy the fact that my English teacher is awesome and is dedicated to teaching us right. However, the coursework can be difficult sometimes because of the referencing and the notes. Apart from the referencing part, I don’t have any problems in English because I’m a native speaker. My teacher teaches us using pictures which makes learning  easier . she pairs us sometimes so we can learn from our mates too and this improves us students. Altogether, studying English in bellerbys has been a pleasure for me

difference between the study method in uk and in nigeria

Studying is one of the most important things that people do. It educates and informs you of what is going on in your surroundings. For the purpose of comparing and contrasting the learning styles I n different countries, a lot of things must be taken into consideration like teaching styles, workload, friendship and class sizes. In terms of size, the classrooms in my country are bigger and can contain more students like maybe 24 people per class whereas in UK, the classrooms are a lot smaller and cant contain much. In terms of workload, there’s less pressure here  making the workload a little lesser than my home country. The teachers here are a lot nicer and tend to understand students more. In terms of teaching styles, the teachers in my country use less handouts and more textbooks whereas it is vice versa over here and teachers here use a lot of visionary teaching which I find excellent.  Friendship in my country is a lot tighter than the friendships around here. Maybe its because there are different nationalities here and people would rather stay in their nationality groups.

Interestingly, I cannot say which educational system is better. I think that eachtype has a lot of advantages and disadvantages


I arrived in the UK on the 2nd of January 2014. When I came out of London Heathrow, the cold that hit me immediately was not a joke. It was different from the cold that I’m used to in my country Nigeria. I had to start wearing jackets and coats every day in order to keep warm.  When I got to Brighton, the first thing I noticed was that people dressed differently and people sang on the streets which I found amazing. One of the things that attracted me to brighton was the amazing beach and seafront.  I want to study international relations in the Uk and I hope to be an ambassador in the nearest future.



My main course in Bellerbys is law and I’m studying it because it is the closest foundation course to international relations which I would be studying in the university. I have understood that in order to succeed in law, you need to master all the relevant cases and how they contribute to the subject matter. Although the cases are important, they can also be very difficult to learn because there are so many of them and you have to differentiate the like and unlike cases most times. What I need to know more about are ways the cases can be learnt easier and faster. My law teacher is absolutely the best and he is the best teacher because he explains every case and he uses pictures which makes it easier for the cases to be mastered.
