German exchange – April 2016

April 21, 2016

German Exchange 2016

Six students and one of our teachers are currently in Germany on a language exchange. Our students live with host families for the week to speak and emerse themselves in German life and culture.

They have been sending photographs back to us in New Milton of their time and we share some of them in this blog.


Here is our group standing on the balcony of the Town Hall in Bonn.

As well as a language exchange our group have visited cultural areas. Beethoven’s birthplace was on the list from yesterday, a great example of cross-curricular experience.



Our Bonn trip wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the sweet shop… And not just any shop – Haribo!



The next day our German students travelled to Cologne.

One of the iconic views is from the Hohenzollern bridge, looking towards the Cathedral.



Our group also loved seeing the ‘love locks’ attached to railings.



Our sport department will be happy to see our students not missing out on their athletes practice as another trip took them to see the Oly


mpic museum.

Our last photo is of the imposing Cathedral.


More to come from our German exchange soon.
