GCSE German students took part in an exchange programme in March, visiting two countries and three cities within the space of six days.
17 Year 10 students and two teachers set off to Trier, Germany, on the 7th March. On arrival at the exchange school, they were welcomed with slices of delicious cake and met their exchange partners for the first time. After a quick induction and tour around the school, the students went home for their first night in the other families’ homes. Over the next few days, the group visited Bonn, at one time the capital of West Germany, Luxembourg and Trier. One of the most popular parts of the trip was a visit to Luxembourg City, a beautiful, trilingual country where both English, French and German are all spoken with near fluency.
Year 10 student, Elizabeth, said: “We left the following Tuesday, with some very sad goodbyes. Overall, the German exchange was probably one of my favourite school trips ever, and I would 100% recommend it. I can honestly say my German has never been so good and the experience was so immersive and enjoyable.”
