Students studying A Level German at Worcester Sixth Form College have recently taken part in the College’s annual exchange trip to Munich. Each student was allocated a German host family, who they lived with for the whole trip. The students attended lessons at the Albert Einstein Gymnasium School (Einstein’s former school!) and got to spend free time taking in the sights and culture in and around Munich and on various visits to the Chiemsee Lake and Salzburg.
When asked about the exchange, James, a current student, said: “I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the exchange because of how friendly all of the German students were. My German speaking and understanding skills have also improved considerably.” Magda, also a current student, added: “It was so much fun, and have made some really good friends, plus the nightlife in Munich was great!”
Kerry Morris, teacher of German, said: “It’s an invaluable experience which really helps to boost students’ confidence in the language. It’s a great way for the students to develop new friendships and gain a greater understanding of German culture.”
So it seems as though as good time was had by all, and the College looks forward to welcoming the German students back to Worcester soon!
