Can you briefly describe your country? (What make your country famous? National sport? Do you have sea or/and mountains in your country?) 

Algeria is a country rich in history due to various occupations and colonizations.

You can find sites all over the country, which can date from several centuries and millennia, from the Berbers, the Romans, the Byzantines, Arabs, Frenchs and Spanish.

In Algeria we have the Mediterranean Sea in the north, followed by mountainous relief, and the desert of Sahara in the south. There are almost everywhere across the territory, millennial cities, testifying to the passage of several civilizations.

The national sport in Algeria is football.

Why did you come to UK? What do you like most in London?

I came in the Uk to learn and practice English.

What I like the most in London is the diversity, people coming from everywhere, it makes the things more interesting, and it gives you the opportunity to know more about this foreign traditions.
