Yes, I guess you're right. Maybe we'll spend one day on each. At the moment, he only has offers from Liverpool and Leeds. Sunderland and Newcastle haven't replied yet.
I used to consider Liverpool an absolute dump when I regularly visited in the 70's and 80's in the course for my job. Now I regard it as the most improved of the larger cities in England.
Yes, I worked there for 6 months in the early eighties and found it terrifying! I think it soon after the riots and all the shops had heavy grills over the windows. I rented a room just next to the famous Penny Lane. I'm looking forward to seeing how much it's changed.
Is it Liverpool Uni or Liverpool Hope Uni?
For anyone with an interest in the outdoors, Liverpool is well located for Wales, Lake District, Lancashire and North Yorkshire. Similarly Leeds is good in that respect and is also quite a nice place now.
He likes sports, especially football, cricket and tennis, but not really an outdoors person. More a 'Play football and call Dad to take me home' type person!!
If your son has any interest in folk music, then Newcastle may be the place to be.
He's mainly into Ska, general pop and a bit of classical.
There is a module for music which is called "live project" - that is where basically you can do something like songwriting or composing.
He'd love something like that. He's written songs and plays trumpet with two bands - a Ska band and a reggae one.
Scouse is much easier to understand.
Hmm, not sure I agree. I can usually understand geordie but a woman in Liverpool once tried to talk to me and I didn't understand a word!
