Our language trip to England, a really awesome country to explore …
We, students of the classes 5a and 5b, went to Seaford, Great Britain, from April 27th to May 4th, 2019. Very nice host families provided us accommodation for this week and gave us the chance to get to know how people live their daily life in England.
This was an interesting and mostly positive experience. Even the weather was great, hardy any rain (just a few raindrops in Brighton), which isn’t really typical for England! Based on these conditions we experienced Seaford, Brighton, London and Eastbourne at their best.
On Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings we went to ‘school’, where we practised spoken English, created crossword puzzles ourselves and, after several other interesting activities, we even received certificates on our last day. We spent the time off school exploring some parts of the country. On Sunday, we visited Brighton, the most liberal city in England and took lots of photos of e.g. The Royal Pavilion or Brighton Pier. Two day later we went to London by train where we had a short walk of the City of Westminster. Then some of us visited Madame Tussauds and the impressive London Eye, others took a tour of the venerable Shakespeare Globe Theatre, where we even had the chance to watch the rehearsal of the play ‘Henry V’. Furthermore, on Wednesday, after a short bus trip, we walked from the chalk cliffs of Beachy Head to Eastbourne and another day we learned how to play cricket, one national sport in England.
We all had lots of fun and were very happy to travel to this great country with the travel agency H2 and our teachers Mr. Wieser, Mrs. Kaltenböck and Mrs. Weihs!
